Translation Workshop

All students of German were invited to take part in a translation workshop with the German author Felicitas Hoppe on Wednesday 28 November, 5-6:30pm at the Taylor Institution.

Hoppe was awarded the prestigious Georg-Buechner-Preis this year, and was in Oxford as German Department Writer in Residence in the last week in November.

Workshop participants translated excerpts from Hoppe's short story 'Die Pilger' (from the collection Picknick der Friseure).
