new issue of eXchanges

November 20, 2008

So this is shameless self-promotion, I know. But eXchanges is launching its new issue, Roots & Branches, today and we’d love to share it with everyone! Read it on our website at

Our launch party is tonight, too, so if you are in the area, please stop in. It’s at 8pm in Shambaugh House at 430 N. Clinton Street in Iowa City. Puja Birla and two former editors of eXchanges, Emily Goedde and Diana Thow will be reading their translations, published in this issue.

We’ll also be celebrating the new designation of Iowa City as the third UNESCO City of Literature! (See our previous post for more)


Welcome to the (revived!) blog site for eXchanges, the University of Iowa’s journal of literary translation! We’ll be posting events, updates on eXchanges translators and authors, as well as any translation-related material that catches our eye…
