Three Percent #188: Cultural Support in Multilingual Spain [A Riveting Event]
In this episode, Chad talks with Olga Castro (Univ. of Warwick), and translators Jacob Rogers (Galician), Mara Faye Lethem (Catalan), Robin Munby (Asturian), and Aritz Branton (Basque) about literatures from the official (and unofficial) languages of Spain, ways in which the regional governments support translation from these languages, the burden of pitching, challenges and joys, books you should know about, and much more.
This week’s music is “We Will Live for Ages” by Hjaltalín.
Things we discussed that you should check out:
