“Situated in Translation: Global Media and Cultural Practices“
Annual Conference of the Research Group “Translating and Framing. Practices of Medial Transformations”.
18.-20.5.2017 at Hochschule für Bildende Künste (HFBK) in Hamburg
The international annual conference of the research group „Translating and Framing. Practices of Medial Transformations“ brings together scholars and practitioners working in philosophy, media, and performance and cultural studies whose interventions focus on dynamic processes of cultural transformation in a global context. Taking as our starting point the notion that culture is produced in an ongoing, reciprocal process of framing and translation, we have specifically invited contributions that broaden existing concepts of framing and translating, for instance, by focusing on such diverse phenomena as inter-medial and cross-cultural translations and hybridizations. Pushing beyond traditional notions of media production and reception, we are asking instead in what ways are media not only always already framed and translated expressions of specific, mostly Western cultures, but what other, non-Western and frequently unseen and unheard ways of framing and translating are there?
With contributions from William Uricchio, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Kader Attia, Elisabeth El Refaie, Birgit Weyhe, Tobias Ebbrecht-Hartmann, Deniz Göktürk, Encarnación Gutiérrez Rodríguez, Julia Lajta-Novak, Martin Jörg Schäfer, Ramsay Burt, Decolonising Design Group, Jannis Androutsopoulos und Jessica Weidenhöffer.
The research group „Translating and Framing. Practices of Medial Transformations“ (Speaker: Gabriele Klein; deputy speaker: Claudia Benthien) consists of seven research projects led by scholars of the Universität Hamburg (UHH) and Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg (HFBK). The Research Group is funded by the Hamburg Research Funding (Landesforschungsförderung Hamburg) / Ministry of Science, Research and Equalities.
