Piketty Bookstore text author and translator going up the staircase in the largest bookstore in Ljubljana

When non-fiction tops the list: 149 books in translation enabled by the Institute’s Paul Celan program

This month, IWM Permanent Fellow Ludger Hagedorn introduces our "Made in IWM" piece. He interviewed Vesna Velkovrh Bukilica, a Paul Celan Fellow at the IWM in 2015, and the translator of the Slovenian edition of Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century.  

The translator of the Slovenian edition of Thomas Piketty’s worldwide bestseller is Vesna Velkovrh Bukilica. She was a fellow at the IWM in the summer of 2015, when she spent three months at the Institute translating the book from the original French into Slovenian. 

Under the rubric “Made in IWM,” we normally publish short articles on books that were written or conceived at the Institute, this month we have chosen a translation.
