Title: Exploring Space
Subtitle: Trends in Literature, Linguistics and Translation
Edited By: Shakila Abdul Manan
Lalita Sinha
Description:

This book embodies the current trends towards inter- and intra-disciplinary
studies specifically within the areas of Literature, Linguistics, and
Translation. It is a collection of original and insightful essays by
Malaysian academics, reflecting state-of-the-art research, and seen through
traditional and modern lenses of conceptualising reality or “spaces” within
the fields mentioned. The uniqueness of this book lies in its attempts to
provide textual and theoretical readings from a variety of positions and
perspectives. The multi-disciplinary approach taken will appeal to readers
from diverse backgrounds, particularly with the contemporary emphasis on
and celebration of heterogeneity in all its forms within a global context.
