Is Reading a Book Different from Listening to It? Find Out at Sarah Lawrence Discussion on November 28 PDF Print Email


By Ellen de Saint Phalle, Director of Community Relations, Sarah Lawrence College

Nov. 21, 2018:  Is reading a book the same as listening to an audiobook? Is one medium better than the other? How are they different? Join Sarah Lawrence faculty member Bella Brodzki and Friends of Sarah Lawrence College for a discussion titled "Audiobooks as a Mode of Translation" on Wednesday, November 28, at 7:00 pm at 45 Wrexham Road and find out.

Bella Brodzki is a scholar of critical and literary theory and currently teaches an undergraduate seminar at Sarah Lawrence called Translation Studies: Poetics, Politics, Theory and Practice. The course’s point of departure is that all interpretive acts are acts of translation, that the very medium that makes translation possible--language itself--is already a translation. While her year-long course covers multiple forms of translation and their various challenges, Brodzki’s talk with Friends will focus on audiobooks.

A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Brodzki earned a master’s degree from Hebrew University and a PhD from Brown University. In addition to critical and literary theory and translation studies, Brodzki’s academic interests include modernist and contemporary fiction, gender studies, postcolonial studies, and autobiography and life narrative.

She is the author of Can These Bones Live? Translation, Survival, and Cultural Memory and co-editor of Life/Lines: Theorizing Women’s Autobiography. Her work has appeared in several select scholarly publications and collections. She is the recipient of National Endowment for the Humanities fellowships, the Lucius Littauer Award, and Hewlett-Mellon grants.

This event is open to all, but space is limited. To register, please e-mail CLOAKING or call 914-323-6154.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
