Translating Culture is a multimedia collection of folk tales from cultures across the globe, including Russian, Spanish, and Arabic. The stories have been selected to showcase the similarities and differences between story-telling techniques across these cultures. This collection was curated by Sofi Sanders, who also wrote an accompanying article exploring the cross-cultural interconnections demonstrated in this collection, available in the non-fiction section here: “On Translating Culture”
