ASAL 2013 mini-conference: 'DisLocated Readings'
This two day event seeks to map the wider coordinates of the transnational currents of Australian literature including translation distribution, readerships, marketing and pedagogy, to counter the parochial tendencies of cultural nationalism that restrict the circuits of meaning exchange inshore. By addressing three streams, Life-writing, Writing/translating the other, and Transnational, the symposium will provide a forum for the discussion of transnational translation and encourage reflection on the inherently interdisciplinary and cosmopolitan nature of Translation Studies.
Confirmed keynote speakers include Associate Professor Alison Ravenscroft (La Trobe University), Alice Pung (author of Unpolished Gem and My Father’s Daughter) and Dr Adele D’Arcangelo (University of Bologna, translator of Unpolished Gem).
The call for papers is available at http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/dislocated-readings/call-for-papers/. Abstracts are due by 31 October 2012.
