FINAL CFP for "Rural Geographies of Gender and Space, 1840-1920"

University of Warwick, 23rd September 2011

Confirmed speaker Professor Jo Little, University of Exeter

Whilst discussions of gender and space in the nineteenth- to early-twentieth century have typically focused on "women and the city", rural spaces offer equally productive contexts for exploring the intersections between gender and space in this period. As the socio-spatial relations of the country are impacted by the move into modernity, rural environments are revealed in literary and historical texts as sites of complex, contradictory and changing gendered codes.

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?
