Faculty Accomplishments: Tanya Paperny

September 10, 2012

Tanya Paperny, a new adjunct instructor in the arts and humanities department, will have her essay, "Red Hook, Revisited," published in the forthcoming The Crab Orchard Review.  Her essay is about Brooklyn's Red Hook neighborhood.

In addition, Paperny was awarded the Legid House Translation Lab Fellowship, a one week, fully-funded fellowship at Omni International Arts Center. Transition Lab, is an intensive residency for five collaborating writer-translator teams in the fall of 2012. This 
focused 
residency 
will
 provide
 an 
integral 
stage 
of 
refinement, 
allowing 
translators 
to
 dialogue with 
the writers 
about 
text‐specific 
questions. 
It 
will
 also 
serve
 as 
an
 essential community‐builder 
for 
English‐language 
translators
 who
 are 
working 
to 
increase 
the 
amount 
of 
international 
literature
 available 
to 
American 
readers. Paperny will spend Nov 9-16 working with Andrei Krasnyashykh, a Ukrainian writer whose work Paperny translates.
