Welcome back to SRFinfo news and information! Below please find a few future events which should be of interest to members. More details will be given elsewhere.
1. 2020 is a special anniversary year of the Scottish poet Edwin Morgan. Morgan translated many Russian poets into Scots and plans are already being made to celebrate this link. Watch this space!
2. In the spring of 2021 the Annual British Congress of Slavists comes to Scotland for the first time! There should be many talks and sessions that will be of interest to SRF members. More details to follow in due course.
3. "Starling" is a new Translation Forum which was set up at Glasgow University last autumn on a trial basis. Its aim is to look at various translation topics with Slavonic and other languages, including Hungarian and Finnish. It has had a very successful first "flight" and will be starting up again in September 2019. "Starling" was "founded" by Christine Bird and she will be sending a message of welcome out to all SRF members later in the summer.
Finally, I am sure that all SRF members would like to join in expressing heartfelt thanks to Jenny Carr for all the excellent work she did with SRF over so many years and we all wish her well for her future projects.
A quick reminder here too that Summerhall Arts Centre, Edinburgh is no longer houses the SRF Office. The new postal address in c/o CEES, 8 Lilybank Gardens, University of Glasgow , Glasgow G12 8QQ; there is no actual office space there but we are very grateful indeed to Professor Richard Berry for allowing SRF to be linked to CEES in this way. The new SRF telephone number will be announced as soon as possible. Please continue to use the current e-mail address which remains the same.
