The conference is the 3rd edition of the annual meeting of academics who are interested in problems of perception, interpretation or translation of the Oriental literatures. The 1st edition of the conference took place in March 2014. We look forward to all specialists of literary and culture studies, philologists, and other experts on Asian and African literary heritage as well as those, whose research topics relate to reception of the Oriental subjects and motifs in Western literary texts.

During the conference diverse problems and topics ranging from theoretical issues in the field of literature and translation studies, through the results of various types of research and literary analysis, together with their implications for the perception of Oriental works in Europe and in the world, are discussed. It enables all participants to present not only the current view of the issues that have been known and discussed for a long time, but also to present innovative concepts representing the latest literary trends.

The key-words of the 3rd edition of the conference are Sources & Inspirations that imply numerous perspectives in research on literary texts:

    sources of Oriental texts
    (sources of) literary topoi in Oriental literature
    inspirations in Oriental literature
    Orientalism in literature and its sources
    Orient as a source of inspiration for European/world literature
    intertextuality and sources of literary works
    searching for sources and/or roots as a literary motif
    Orient as a source of...
    ... and many other topics related to the key-words of this year's conference.

We hope our conference will be a good occasion to discover some of these perspectives, to show new trends and subjects present in discourse on Oriental literary works and Oriental topics in Polish, European and world literature.
