Linking Cultures: Connecting the Literatures of Southeast Asia

RMIT Culture2

Event Date: 5 December 2022
Author / Presenters: RMIT Culture and non/fictionLab

RMIT Culture in collaboration with non/fictionLab presents Linking Cultures: Connecting the Literatures of Southeast Asia. Hear from a panel of leading Southeast Asian writers as they examine past barriers and explore future connections.

The peoples of Southeast Asia and neighbouring countries have had story and language flow between them for millennia. In a time when colonisation and globalisation have radically shifted those dynamics, this panel of writers and literary scholars discusses how exchanges between countries can lead to reacquaintance and relationships through the sharing of words.

Featuring Mikael Johani; a poet, critic, and translator based in Jakarta, Indonesia; Singaporean writer Alvin Pang, whose work has been translated into more than twenty languages; and Lily Rose Tope from the Philippines, a scholar widely published on Southeast Asian literature in English and Asian literature in translation.

When: 6:30pm, Monday 5 December
Where: The Capitol – 113 Swanston St, Melbourne

Free, registration essential
