Academic Building West Wing, Room 4052
Do you speak, or are you learning, Russian? Join us for the first annual Rutgers translate-a-thon, dedicated to producing English-language subtitles for Sergei Solov’ev’s cult Soviet rock epic ASSA (1987). Bring your language skills, curiosity, and a laptop if you have one. We’ll show you how to use Amara, a cloud-based subtitling platform, as we work on subtitles together throughout the day.
Non-Russian-speakers who are curious about Amara also welcome. Come in and out as you like – snacks and lunch provided!
