ASAL mini-conference, 21-22 February, 2013 – Monash University Caulfield Campus
Translation & Interpreting Studies and the National Centre for Australian Studies
The transnational reception of Australian literature within global literary markets and and readerships suggests that national frameworks are being superseded and mediated by an increasingly ‘transnational’ imaginary.
This ASAL mini-conference seeks to map the wider coordinates of the transnational currents of Australian literature. Contemporary literary scholarship is interested in how the effects of globalization might shape Australian literature in its broadest definition: including travel writing, life-writing, migrant, refugee and Indigenous fiction, as well as writing and translations in languages other than English.
This 1.5 day symposium will explore the effects of translation (in both inter- and intralingual forms) on our textual relationships with the region and the world.
