On April 15, the SCIT Conference Room was the venue for a creative workshop on literary translation. It was attended by SCIT students and participants of the Goethe Institute translation seminar led by Marina Koreneva. The event was a great success. It was moderated jointly by Martin Schaeuble, author of the sensational novel Die Scanner, his translator Tatiana Zborovskaya (Moscow), and SCIT Director Irina Alexeeva. The participants discussed issues related to translating newly coined words, youth slang, and the reasons for public liking for dystopia in literature and on stage. The event was planned jointly by SCIT and Goethe Institute for the Week of Germany in St. Petersburg.
