Etc. Exchange Transformation Communication

All of the subdisciplines of English Studies address issues of exchange, transformation and communication: ranging from the temporal development, regional variation and functional properties of language; through the societal interactions examined in history and cultural studies; to the permutations of plot, negotiations of character and voice, and evolutions of genre within literature, film, and other aesthetic forms. Exchange, transformation and communication are crucial to an understanding of English as a humanistic discipline; to its international role in political, institutional and market-driven contexts; and to the mediation between English(es) and other languages that is performed by textual and cultural translation.

The 3^rd International Geomedia Conference: “Revisiting the Home”

The theme of Geomedia 2019 centers on how media are culturally and materially integrated in and reshaping the home-place (e.g., the “smart home” and the “home-office”) and connecting it to other places and spaces. It also concerns the phenomenological and discursive constructions of home, ranging from the intimate social interaction of domestic spaces to the popular (and sometimes politicized) media nostalgia of imagined communities (nation states, homelands, etc.).

Visuality 2019: Creative communication in the emerging constellations

The new visual media create the space in which creativity and communication operate as the inseparable phenomena. On the other hand, mass media are often blamed for levelling up and blocking the creative aspirations of the society. As a result, new social constellations that are neither creative nor sustainable are emerging. These emerging phenomena require innovative measures and technologies capable of proportioning creative aspirations of new constellations to the challenges of new audio/visual media.

Action Cinema Now

This conference seeks to bring together scholars from a range of disciplines in a cross-continental, intercultural, intermedial and interdisciplinary examination of this wide-ranging form.

12th Visual and Cultural Studies Graduate Conference

The Visual and Cultural Studies Graduate Conference is organized biennially by PhD students in Visual and Cultural Studies. This conference invites emerging scholars and practitioners in the humanities, arts, and social sciences to consider the ways in which idleness works across cultures. How might the concept of idleness be seen as a space of inquiry and contestation, and how might it become generative and productive? Hosted by the University of Rochester’s Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies, this conference aims to foster an environment for interdisciplinary communication, knowledge exchange, and collaboration.

TRANSFORMING CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS AND THEIR USERS

TRANSFORMING CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS AND THEIR USERS – Current Agendas in the Interdisciplinary Turn to Participation

The seminar introduces, and offers a space for discussing, important current agendas for cultural institutions interested in participation. It begins with the premise that the present cultural, institutional and academic interest in participation often challenges traditional professional practices as well as distinctions like institution/citizen, professional/user, expert knowledge/lay experience and cultural sector/other sectors. In this way, the turn to new forms of participatory engagements also calls for interdisciplinary interaction and inspiration.

Realities and Fantasies: Relations, Transformations, Discontinuities

In this workshop, we take on the continuous and renewed interest in the real in its relation to fantasy, illusion, and imagination. Whereas typically, debates on realism are focused on its contrast to idealism or nominalism, we ask: What are the contemporary relations between realities and fantasies? How do reality and fantasy speak to intellectual imaginings and possible futures? What role can or should fictions, fantasies, and idealizations play in social, political, individual, and metaphysical change? We are interested in presentations that take on the ways in which reality and fantasy relate, how they may contrast, and how, and under what conditions, the one may transform into the other.
