Alison Walls MFA '07 will be a guest scholar participating in New York Shakespeare Exchange's  next Freestyle Lab: Our Own Voices, Our Own Tongues on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 7 p.m. at the 53rd Street Library. "Led by our curators and guest scholars, this lab will invite a discussion on Shakespeare and translation, asking us to consider how the work of a playwright who is known around the world might change as that work is "adopted" by other countries and cultures outside of his native England. What do we lose or gain when Shakespeare is translated out of its original text, and what are the different ways that translation can be its own creative act?"
