Prof. Jose Alaniz and Ph.d. Student Veronica Muskheli team up to translate a Russian Sci-Fi story

Submitted by Chris Dawson-Ripley on

We are happy to let you know that a UW translation of “Entwives,” a 2014 sci-fi short story by Russian author Aleksei Lukyanov, is out in an online magazine B O D Y. The translators are our own José Alaniz, an associate professor and Veronica Muskheli, a graduate student at Slavic Languages and Literatures. The darkly humorous story verges on the macabre and raises difficult and timely questions of gender definitions and gender rights as they are entwined with issues of state and national identities.
