[ecrea] CFP Cultural Translation and East Asia: Film, Literature and Art

Tue Apr 24 16:55:10 GMT 2012

This is an updated CFP for the Cultural Translation and East Asia: Film, Literature and Art conference that is being held in Bangor University, UK 7-8th Sep 2012.

We have already received many fine submissions but we are still looking for more and since the last CFP there are now clear plans for a special edition of the Journal Archiv Orientalni ( as well as other journals related to specific areas of study.  Appropriate papers will be sought from the attendees and those interested in being considered please let us know.

Confirmed key note  speakers  include:
Dr Julian Stringer, University of Nottingham and Dr Ming-yeh Rawnsley, Leeds University

Call for papers: DEADLINE 20th May 2012

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.

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, Taiwan, Mongolia, Hong Kong, 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.

Any questions or queries please don't hesitate to contact the organisers: Dr Kate Taylor-Jones ((k.taylor /at/ and
Dr Yan Ying ((y.ying /at/
