Interpreting the Pa(b)st: Translating a Pabst Mansion Archival Collection

February 24 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join us as we talk with UWM graduate students Nastassja Myer and Marisa Irwin about their work transcribing and translating the Pabst Mansion’s Best-Pabst Family Papers archival collection. Hidden away at Pabst Farms and rediscovered in 2005, this collection of 19th century letters written in the now disused German Kurrentschrift provides insight into not only the Best and Pabst families, but also the fluidity of language and Wisconsin’s immigrant history.

Watch live on the Pabst Mansion’s Facebook Live on February 24th at 7:30pm!

Presented in partnership with UWM Translation and Interpreting Studies.
