Translation today is generally considered a lesser form of literary creation. It would sound implausible to us to include translations of foreign literary works into the canon of national literary histories. But the formative period of modern literature in East Asia offers us a different understanding of translation. During this period, around the turn of the twentieth century, translation was considered a creative and authentic activity that stood alongside other forms of prose writing in both fiction and non-fiction. Through examination of Korean intellectuals' translation of Russian prose through Japanese mediation, this project ultimately aims to reinstate translation as a practice that produces new meaning and generates change in society, and to rethink the way that modern literature developed in East Asia. In addition to translation and mediation studies, my research will contribute broadly to humanities scholarship in such fields as the history of writing and authorship.
