The World of Translation Conference

Front cover of PEN American Center, The World of Translation, New York: PEN American Center, 1971. This book, which was written and published by the American Centre, contains an introduction by the American academic and translator Gregory Rabassa, who was an associate of the American Centre and PEN International’s Translation and Linguistic Rights Committee. The book comprises papers that were presented at The World of Translation, an international conference on literary translation that was organised by the Translation and Linguistic Rights Committee (then called the Committee on Translations) and held on 12 May 1970 in New York.
