Between Tradition & Modernity

International 2nd Edition of the Conference on Oriental Literatures and Orient in Literary Texts

19-20th March 2015, Toruń





About Conference

The conference is the second edition of the annual meeting of academics who are interested in problems of perception, interpretation or translation of the Oriental literatures. We look forward to all specialists of literary and culture studies, philologists, and other experts on Asian and African literary heritage as well as those, whose research topics relate to reception of the Oriental subjects and motifs in Western literary texts.

The first edition of the conference took place in March 2013. In order to create a broader forum for discussion and exchange of opinions on Oriental literatures and their reception in Poland and other foreign countries, the organizers decided to invite researchers from foreign academic centers to participate in the meeting.

The key-words of the second edition conference are Tradition & Modernity that imply numerous perspectives in research on literary texts. We hope our conference will be a good occasion to discover some of these perspectives, to show new trends and subjects present in discourse on Oriental literary works and Oriental topics in Polish and European literature.

Conference languages: Polish & English
