Bilingualism and Identity

Sat 1 Jun | 4:15pm | 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 native tongue? 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 and researcher Dr. Tina Giannoukos speaks to author Maria Tumarkin, and poets Dean Kalimniou and Ouyang Yu, about this vital and fascinating topic.

Chair: Dr. Tina Giannoukos

Panelists: Maria Tumarkin, Dean Kalimniou, Ouyang Yu
