The Operating System is an arts organization based in New York City that supports a small press and magazine—as well as a robust online platform—documenting a wide range of creative practitioners and projects. The press’s Glossarium: Unsilenced Texts and Modern Translations series, curated by managing editor Lynne DeSilva-Johnson aims to “recover silenced texts outside and beyond the familiar poetic canon . . . in particular those under siege by restrictive regimes and silencing practices in their home country.” Forthcoming books in the series include Palestinian poet Ashraf Fayadh’s Instructions Within, translated by Mona Kareem; Cuban memoirist Gregory Randall’s To Have Been There Then, translated by Margaret Randall; and Cuban poet Israel Dominguez’s Return Trip, translated by Margaret Randall.
