The Centre for Canadian Studies and the Canadian Embassy in Berlin would like to announce
their mutual conference entitled
Transliteration: Literatur und Gesellschaften, Literature
and Societies, Littérature et sociétés
The conference will take place in the Canada Room of the University Library in Marburg between July 5 and 7, 2007.
Thematically, the conference concentrates on the reception of Canadian culture in Germany as
seen through the eyes and shaped by the experiences of German and Canadian representatives
of publishing houses, media, cultural organisations, universities, and the Canadian Embassy.
The term "transliteration" from the title is a reference to the literary and linguistic transfer that
takes place at the intersection of foreign cultures in the form of translation, culture marketing,
media and intermediality. The conference proposes to examine the re-evaluation of the literary and cultural exchange between the two countries in the age of limitless high-speed communication, rapid technological progress, and the politicization of culture.
"Transliteration" consists of a workshop sponsored by the Canadian Embassy in Berlin and a
lecture series that has already become a Marburg summer tradition known under the name of
"Canadian Literature Day."
The provisional program will be announced on the website of the Marburg Centre for Canadian Studies in the near future: http://www.uni-marburg.de/mzks
