East Asian Translation Studies Conference

This is to inform that we will be holding an international conference on East Asian Translation Studies at University of East Anglia, UK, on 19 and 20 June 2014.

Published in Calls for Papers

September 7-8 2012

Bangor University UK

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to focus on questions of ‘cultural translation’ in all its forms and constructs. As global identity becomes increasingly defined by questions of communication across languages and cultures the role of ‘translation’ becomes key in the forging of new subjectivities. Cultural Translation is not only an important field of academic study but also an essential part of our daily experiences.

In the last few decades the interaction between East Asian Cultures and the West has raised many issues related to questins of cultural Imperialism, cultural miscommunication and the global pattern of cultural transmission. This conference will engage with these ideas and more.

Topics could include (although are not limited to) :

1.     Adaption in literature, film and media

2.     Interplay between East Asian nations

3.     Construction of ‘East Asia’ as a theoretical/political/cultural concept

4.     A focus on the interplay between ‘East Asia’ and the ‘West’

5.     Global Dissemination of East Asian Popular Culture.

6.     Creative writing and literary translation as cross-cultural tool

We would especially welcome practice-led works from artists, translators, filmmakers and writers. Panel submissions (3-4 people) are also very welcome.

This conference is broadly considering Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, Japan, Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia to be the geographical area of focus however comparative studies are very welcome.

There are plans for a special edition journal as a direct result of this conference.
