Susan Bernofsky, one of the preeminent translators of German-language literature, teaches literary translation in the MFA Writing Program of the Columbia University School of the Arts, where she serves as Director of Literary Translation at Columbia, and chairs the Translation Committee of the PEN American Center.  Her lifelong fascination with German literature began when she first read the Grimms' fairy tales in the original as a high school student. She takes particular interest in the lines of influence linking eighteenth and nineteenth century German thought to modern and contemporary literature and theater in the German-speaking world and beyond. Her writings on literature and culture are informed by her experience of living between two continents and cultures. She blogs about literary translation at www.translationista.org, and is currently at work on a biography of the great Swiss-German modernist author Robert Walser, whom she has been translating for over twenty-five years.

Brian Droitcour is a writer, translator, critic, an editor at the New Inquiry and a PhD candidate in comparative literature at New York University. He has contributed reviews and essays to Artforum, Art in America, and Rhizome, among other publications, and his angry letters to the editor have been published in Artforum and n+1. He has been yelping since January 2012 and his account was given Elite status this fall. His web site fifteenstars.com, a collection of found Yelp reviews with illustrations and an accompanying essay, was featured as part of the New Museum's First Look series of online exhibitions in October 2013. Among other projects, Brian is currently editing Klaus_ebooks, a series of artists' ebooks published by Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery, and translating a collection of poems by Russian artist and poet Andrei Monastyrski, to be published by Ugly Duckling Presse in 2015.
