TRANSLATION:
PASSAGE TO WORLD LITERATURE
April 16-18, 2010
The Red River Conference on World Literature has a tradition of high-quality papers informed by contemporary literary theory and criticism and we welcome the voices of scholars from across the globe. We invite papers and panel proposals on topics that investigate world literatures from antiquity to the present. While we are particularly interested in proposals that focus on the conference theme, papers and panels on all aspects of world literature will be considered. In considering possible topics for 2010 you should include, but are not limited to, the exploration of the dynamics of translation: its uses and effects. Translation is an especially appropriate topic for any group interested in learning, teaching, researching, or simply having access to the literatures of the world and the ages. Facets of the topic worthy of your attention include the following:
Translation/Interpretation Theory
Tools for Translation/Translation as a tool
