Symposium on Zainichi Korean Literature
In 2022, the Literature Translation Institute of Korea (LTI) and Seoul Selection Publishing facilitated the English-language translations of four important literary works by prominent Zainichi (lit. “residing in Japan; resident) Korean authors. This upcoming symposium will bring together the translators of these works to collectively consider the state of the field and future directions for Zainichi literary studies. It will conclude with a book talk by Cindi Textor on her forthcoming monograph, Intersectional Incoherence: Zainichi Literature and the Ethics of Illegibility (University of California Press).
Supported by funding from the Department of Asian Studies at UBC, the Literature Translation Institute of Korea, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
