This roundtable's goal is to focus on multilingual writing as a field where borderline meanings of translation are constantly renegotiated and to elicit a dialogue among scholars of translation theory, multilingualism, and translation studies. It therefore seeks to define the object of translation studies and its significant but elusive role in the process of theorizing multilingual literature.
