Dr Leah Gerber: “Slipping Another Shrimp on the Barbie: Australia in Translation”- All welcome.

How ‘Australia’ is translated in works of fiction is a fascinating area of research. Studies in this area examine Australian literary texts of all genres in translation. They look at the different understanding of notions of Australianness overseas, the varying expectations of certain target audiences when reading a translated text about Australia, and also the ways in which Australian literary texts are marketed in other countries.
