German author Ulrike Draesner returned to Lancaster University from 17th–20th February as Writer-in-Residence, whilst teaching students on the topic of Translation as a Cultural Practice. Ulrike Draesner has won multiple awards across German-speaking Europe for her poetry and prose writing, and was long-listed for the German Book Prize – the German equivalent of the Booker Prize – in 2014. Ulrike had previously been  Authors and the World’s Writer-in-Residence from 25th-29th October 2015 to work with final year students of German in a translation workshop exploring ‘radical translations’ of Shakespeare in her writing, as well as translator Tom Cheesman’s faithful transposition of the resulting texts back in to English. She was also part of last year’s Portrait of Europe event at Lancaster’s The Storey.
