September 21-26,2020, IUC Dubrovnik, Croatia
TRANSLATING THE MAHĀBHĀRATA AS A GROUP
(Andrzej Babkiewicz, Joanna Jurewicz, Przemysław Szczurek, Sven Sellmer)
The Polish Mahābhārata Translation Project is a nationally funded enterprise that aims at translating books VI–X of the Mahābhārata into Polish for the first time and publishing the result both in bookform and online, together with additional features. In the proposed workshop four members of the project would like to present several of its aspects : application process and overall design (Joanna Jurewicz), technical tools (Sven Sellmer), epic weaponry (Andrzej Babkiewicz), selected problems of translation (Przemysław Szczurek). It is hoped that a discussion of these points may be helpful for the planning of similar large-scale translation projects in the field of epic and purāṇic studies.
