The Centre for Humanities Research, Lingnan University (Hong Kong) plans to organize an international conference on “Art, Translation and Modern Literature in Chinese” to be held at Lingnan University on 17-18 May 2016. The conference invites proposals for papers and panels.
The conference will focus on the interaction between art, translation and modern Chinese literature, seeking to examine the nature of translational time and space where modern Chinese art and literature respond to the influence from foreign cultures. In this process, artists, translators and writers attempt to reflect upon the significance of the newly acquired practice across different cultural and political contexts. With an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches, the conference hopes to explore a host of issues concerning translation in relation to modern Chinese art and literature, mediating complex influence from both inside and outside the Greater China region.
Please e-mail abstracts (250 words or Chinese characters] for individual papers, or 1,000 words or Chinese characters for panels including abstracts within the proposed panel, accompanied by biographical notes indicating your affiliated institution and queries regarding the conference (if any) to chr@LN.edu.hk by 18 March 2016. The result of acceptance will be communicated on 31 March 2016.
