Call For Papers

The conference is the 5th edition of the meeting of academics who are interested in problems of perception, interpretation or translation of the Oriental literatures. The 1st edition of the conference took place in March 2014. 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.
During the conference diverse problems and topics ranging from theoretical issues in the field of literature and translation studies, through the results of various types of research and literary analysis, together with their implications for the perception of Oriental works in Europe and in the world, are discussed. It enables all participants to present not only the current view of the issues that have been known and discussed for a long time, but also to present innovative concepts representing the latest literary trends.

The key-theme of the 5th edition of the conference is literature towards freedom and oppression that implies numerous perspectives in research on literary texts:
• representations of literature as a laboratory of freedom and oppression
• literature as a release from…
• literature against totalitarianism
• rebellion, alienation and striving for freedom in literature
• prison literature
• image of an oppressed man
• motive of freedom and oppression
• relations between freedom and the existential philosophy
• creative freedom and the right of experiment with the word
• author’s autonomy
• political and ideological independence of the creator and the characters he drew
• symbols of the struggle for freedom
• definitions, topoi and ranges of freedom and oppression
• … and many other issues connected with the topic of the current edition of the conference.

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, European and world literature.

English, Polish (organizers reserve the right to add a panel conducted in other languages, if needed)
