From the editorial board of Expanded Field
The translation anthology The World in Short (Dutch: De Wereld in het Kort) is a special issue of Expanded Field. Though our regular issues are in English, the present anthology is published as a bi-lingual issue (Dutch and English).
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this anthology, including the authors and their translators, but also, of course, the students and staff members of Vrije Universiteit, who motivated their short story choices. Also, we’d like to thank Vrije Universiteit and SLAA for both their initiative and support in this project. Last, but certainly not least, we would like to give special thanks to Annelies Verbeke, the composer and guest editor of this anthology, who is the VU Writer-in-Residence of 2018-2019.
Some stories of this translation anthology have been recorded in Dutch and/or English as a podcast. To listen to these stories, please head to: https://www.vu.nl/en/news-agenda/agenda/podcastchair/index.aspx
