Self-translation, then, may not be translation at all, but be merely the process of creating “the same” literary work in a different language. This roundtable invites writers, translators and scholars to examine examples of Self-Translation from high literature, popular culture, or ideally their own attempts, and discuss to what degree the “Self” is bound by the language(s) which it uses to express itself.
