Appel à communications : Crossing Borders and Transcultural Flow in Modern East Asia

Géraldine Fiss, University of Southern California, organise un panel dont le titre est Crossing Borders and Transcultural Flow in Modern East Asia.

Le panel est organisé à l’occasion de la conférence annuelle de la MLA Modern Language Association, qui se tiendra à Toronto en janvier 2021.

Description du panel :

This panel seeks to explore instances of East-West and intra-Asian transcultural encounters in modern and contemporary East Asian literature and film. We welcome papers that examine case studies of literary and/or cultural translation; the role translation played in the modernization processes of East Asian countries; texts that traveled to East Asia from the West via the mediation of translation or adaptation; transculturations of East Asian literary and/or visual texts; dynamic intertextuality in East Asia; cultural collaborations that transcend national boundaries; and analyses of the power dynamics between East Asian texts and global cultural discourses. We hope to open up discussions that address broad but fundamental questions concerning the creation, “travel” and transculturation of texts across the Asia Pacific region and beyond. 

Date limite pour envoyer sa proposition de communication : 15 mars 2020.
