Translating the self: story-telling, language and identity

imageredirectThe School of Languages, 200px-cristinawikiLiteratures and Linguistics (Monash)  and ACIS are organising a seminar Translating the self: story-telling, language and identity with presentations by the Somali-Italian writers Ubax Cristina Ali Farah and Kaha Mohamed Aden on Thursday 17 Nov from 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm at Monash’s Caulfield Campus Building S, 2nd floor, Room 230 (participation free but registration required). Ubax Cristina Ali Farah will discuss the role played by bilingual vision in her writing practice, especially in her novel Madre piccola. Kaha Mohamed Aden’s talk draws on her own experience and the complexities of understanding and misunderstanding that writing between two cultures generates. The abstracts of the two presentations, with the draft programme, map of the location and the short registration form, can be found here.
