A Translation of Worlds: The Effects of Cultural Translation on the Migration Process in Hiam and Stella’s Place
Umeå universitet.
2009 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this age, where transnational movements are increasing around the globe, migration is a research area that concerns many disciplines, such as geography, history, anthropology, linguistics as well as cultural- and literary studies, where this study is primarily based. Migration literature involves various levels of encounters that occur when the characters shift geographical regions; above all, the encounter with a “new” cultural environment, a target culture. The migration process is, in my view, a three step process that parallels Arnold van Gennep’s rites of passage developed by Victor Turner which emphasises that there are three phases that occur in all rites of transition, namely separation, transition and incorporation. I see the migration process as a territorial rite of passage that consists of these three phases. As part of my thesis on cultural displacement and translation in Australian immigration literature, I intend, in this paper, to analyse the migration process as portrayed in the two novels Hiam by Eva Sallis and Stella’s Place by Jim Sakkas with a focus on the second, liminal, phase and the third phase, incorporation. My aim is to analyse the effects of cultural translation on the migration process in these two texts.
