Bilingualism and Identity

June 1, 2019 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm AEST

Location: Library
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.
Panelists: Dr. Tina Giannoukos (chair), Dean Kalimniou, Maria Tumarkin, Ouyang Yu
