Three students of Professor of Modern Languages and Literatures Steven White are becoming seasoned scholars of translation -- their work has been published in several academic journals.

Beacons, a publication of the American Translators Association's Literary Division showcasing translations of the works of the foremost writers from languages other than English, has published five translations of poems by Chilean Teresa Calderón in its 2002 edition, done by Justin Bland '03, of Falmouth, Massachusetts; Sylvia Mello '04, of Danvers, Massachusetts; and Tia Rabine '02, of Schenectady, New York. Beacons is edited by Alexic Levitin, of SUNY Plattsburgh's English department.

Calderón visited the Translation Workshop taught by White during the fall 2001 semester. The students read their translations with her at bilingual presentations she gave at St. Lawrence and at SUNY Potsdam.

Bland, Mello and Rabine also recently had an article one for one of White's translation workshops published in Translation Review, the top U.S. journal in the field of translation studies. To read more on that topic, click here for the NetNews story.
