Meet the neighbours: what’s going on in our literary neighbourhood?
|Wednesday 5th December||11:30-12:45||G11 3.56|
Across the Asia Pacific region, the literature of close neighbours is often a mystery, except to those who go in search of it, or are familiar with the native language. Other factors that leave readers in the dark include: a limited number of good translations, poor marketing and circulation by publishers and booksellers, as well as lacklustre intercultural interests.
This session discusses the literary landscape and some ways to facilitate cross-cultural readership. Malachi Edwin, Darryl Whetter, Zafar Anjum in conversation with Jane Camens.
