Bringing Indonesian writing to the world
|Friday 7th December||11:45 - 1:00||G11 3.56|
Indonesia boasts a rich literary tradition and yet most Australian readers are oblivious, despite the fact that Indonesia is our ‘next-door’ neighbour. How can we promote the intercultural transmission of literature between close neighbours and more broadly, to the rest of the world? Panelists discuss the possibility of enhanced exchange. Jemma Purdey, Harry Aveling and Emmanuela Shinta discuss with Jennifer MacKenzie.
See detailed biography of panelists here.
