In the face of resurgent social, political, and religious instability, it seems urgent to recuperate the "lost voices" of humanity: those that have been buried or forgotten and those that have been marginalized or othered on the grounds of their perceived foreignness.

“A nomadic poetics will cross languages,” states Pierre Joris, “not just translate, but write in all or any of them.” His foreshadowing of contemporary trends brings us to consider the stakes of multilingual fluency in works by Anne Tardos, Uljana Wolf, Jérôme Game, and Erin Mouré, among others. If the Modernists commonly tied multilingualism to erudite allusions, what forms do polyglot poets today use to restore cultural specificity? How do multilingual practices reframe figures of the foreign(er) and translatability? What reading communities do such works engender?

Previous panels and round-tables at NeMLA have explored the connections between Language and Self, Language and Identity. Participants in this panel are asked to look specifically at émigrés and exiles who write in a second language, with an eye towards exploring whether this form of “self-translation,” this second-language writing, serves as method of creation of a new Self, or as a bridge between former and new identities. Plainly stated: why do many émigré authors adopt the language of their host country, rather than write in their native tongue?
