This conference seeks to convene scholars from the region and beyond who are working on various aspects of the study of translation across Asia. In particular it will focus on attempts to better understand and theorize how translation – as an ideological act, as an artistic endeavor, as an opening to unknown terrain – was understood and practiced within Asian societies during particular historical moments.
This call is issued for papers discussing current research on translation in Southeast, South and East Asian cultures with an emphasis on the seventeenth to early twentieth centuries. However, we will also be open to considering how earlier forms of translation continue to echo in Asian societies in the present.
