CONFERENCE: LITERATURE AND TRANSLATION

With a keynote address by DAVID DAMROSCH

11-12 July 2011

Monash Caulfield Campus, Melbourne

Where literature exists, translation exists. The very notion of literature would be inconceivable without translation. Goethe believed that without outside influences national literatures rapidly stagnate. Authors have always borrowed and been influenced by writers in other languages.

AALITRA was pleased to be a co-sponsor of the international conference “Literature and Translation” in collaboration with the Australasian Association for Literature (AAL) and the Literature Research Unit at Monash University. The keynote speaker was David Damrosch (Harvard University).
