Inauguration du site d’Impressions d’Extrême-Orient

Run by the young “Far East, text and translation" research team, the Impressions d’Extrême-Orient journal is a new and exclusively electronic journal. Its aim is to contribute to improving knowledge and appreciation of the ancient, modern and contemporary literature of the Far East by proposing new translations of texts from various cultural areas: China, Japan, India, Vietnam, Korea, and Thailand. The team has an acute curiosity in all forms of Asian literature.
Impressions d’Extrême-Orient is an open access electronic journal. Its inaugural issue, Voyages (1/2010), is already available. Two other issues are currently in the pipeline dealing with themes from two conferences in 2009: “Asian literature, translation and reception” and “The novel in Asia and its translation”.
