Sunday 2 June 2019, 1:45pm – 2:45pm, Bilingualism and Identity
If literature is a vehicle through which we make sense of the world, what happens to writing when the author writes in a language other than his or her own?
What is the impact of bilingualism (or multilingualism) on an author’s aesthetics and praxis and their negotiation of a largely monolingual literary and cultural landscape?
Poet Tina Giannoukos speaks to Maria Tumarkin, Dean Kalymniou and Ouyang Yu, about this vital and fascinating topic.
