Jennifer Hardwick and Ian Maness / Queen's University

Come Together: Digital Collaboration in the Academy and Beyond seeks to explore the relationship between digital technology and academic, activist and artistic collaborations. Our focus is on how these collaborations come into being, what challenges they present, and how they are reshaping both the academy and the world at large. While we welcome all papers on the topic of digital collaboration, we are especially interested in those that examine the ways in which technology enables work across disciplinary, geographic, cultural and/or other boundaries, those that identify and/or propose solutions to the barriers that still need to be overcome, and those that offer frameworks for innovative forms of digital collaboration.

Anastasia Lakhtikova/ University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

This panel attempts to bridge creative writing and literary translation as creative practices by examining the work of bilingual and exophonic writers (i.e. writers who write either in two languages or in their non-native language). What might these writers' works and their translation of their own works imply for practitioners of literary translation? What strategies do these writers choose in the absence of equivalence, where a creative decision must be made? Is their practice different from recommended practice? How does the translator of an exophonic writer recreate the unusual relationship between writer and hidden "source" language? Or should s/he?
