Kasia Szymanska

Kasia is Junior Research Fellow in Slavonic Languages at University College, University of Oxford, and a member of the OCCT's organising committee. Her research interests revolve around literary translation thought, experimental translations, and multilingual poetics - especially with reference to the East European context. Funded by Rawnsley Graduate Scholarship, her DPhil project focused on the notion of “translation multiples” across English, Polish, German, and other languages; it discussed cultural and political ideas behind the gesture of multiplying different translation variants by the same translator or a group of translators.

Kasia is currently involved in the Prismatic Translation and World Literatures strands of the Creative Multilingualism research project, especially in the collaborative project on Prismatic Jane Eyre, the Multilingual Creative Writing hub, as well as a conference on multilingualisms in world literature. In 2015, she was awarded the EST Translation Prize. In 2018, she served as one of the judges of the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize. A keen learner of modern languages, she works with Polish, English, and German, continues at Oxford with her French and Yiddish, and recently started learning Russian.
