Developed and run by Canan Marasligil, City in Translation is a project exploring languages in urban spaces, focusing on individual cities and their specificity with regard to language diversity.

The site is organised around Fictions and Resources, providing complimentary perspectives. Fictions features creative writing and other expressions by Canan Marasligil, Resources provides a collection of material from within and outside academia aiming to contextualise the work of this project and aid in future research.

City in Translation starts in Copenhagen, the first city explored by Canan Marasligil during a writer's residency of Culture@Work, hosted at the University of Copenhagen. Learn more about the origins of City in Translation.
