The Annual Cambridge Vsesvit Readings were begun in 2011 to celebrate the art of literary translation and the mission of the journal Vsesvit (The Universe), the oldest active literary journal in Ukraine. Founded in 1925 by Oleksandr Dovzhenko, Vasyl’ Blakytnyi, and Mykola Khvyl’ovyi, the journal has translated over 4,000 works from 98 literatures of the world into the Ukrainian language.
The 2015 Cambridge Vsesvit Readings, which will be held in the Chapel of Robinson College, Cambridge, will celebrate Polish and Ukrainian literary relations with musical performances and readings of literary texts in Polish and in English and Ukrainian translation. The readings will be performed by the students, academic staff and friends of Cambridge Ukrainian Studies, with support from the Cambridge Ukrainian Society and Cambridge Polish Studies, a new initiative of the Department of Slavonic Studies.
