Join renowned poet Ilya Kaminsky and Professor Ilan Stavans in conversation on the changing nature of our language. One of the remaining threads binding Americans to each other and to their past is the English language. But even that is contested. To what extent is it truly national? What is the relationship of the hearing impaired to American English? In what way do translators change language? And poets? 

Events sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Restless Books
