Opening Cultural Borders with Translation: Ten Years of Open Letter Books

This exhibit commemorates and celebrates the tenth anniversary of the University of Rochester’s Open Letter Books and the transfer of its archive to the Department of Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation.

Dedicated to publishing translations of international fiction, poetry, and essays, Open Letter increases access to works of world literature by opening cultural borders through the broadening of access to readers of English.

The Open Letter Books literary manuscript collection includes drafts, publicity, proofs, and other documents that shed light on the important work of this active press. Connected with UR’s Literary Translation Studies program, many UR affiliates translated works published by Open Letter Books.
