CfP: Research seminar “Inter- and transmedial translation analysis: methods and concepts”
22 March 2019, Jakobi 2-114, University of Tartu
The movement of texts from one medium to another and their parallel manifestation in various media are phenomena that are well-known to us from our everyday life as well as from history (e.g. the same text as a work of literature, as a film or as a comic strip; the same story told orally or in written form, as pictures or as songs etc.).
The research seminar focuses on the possibilities of analysing intermedial and transmedial translation: which conceptual means and which methods are suitable for understanding and explaining inter- and transmedial translation. The working languages of the seminar are Estonian and English.
We invite papers (30 minutes) that center on some aspect of analysing inter- and/or transmedial translation. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
- How to analyse intermedial / transmedial translation? Concepts and methods;
- Comparison between the methods used in the analysis of interlingual vs. inter- and transmedial translations: common traits and differences;
- The interrelations of texts in different media (or parts or levels of text) in inter- and/or transmedial translation;
- Methods used in the analysis of the translational aspects of similar, but differently named phenomena (e.g. intersemiotic translation, rewriting, screen version, adaptation, remix, cover etc.);
- Transmedial text: concept, characteristics and possibilities of analysis.
Presentation abstracts (max 300 words) can be submitted until 8 March 2019 at http://www.123formbuilder.com/form-4578078/transmedia-seminar-registration
Everyone interested is invited to attend the seminar (also just as a listener). Please register your participation no later than 18 March 2019 at http://www.123formbuilder.com/form-4578078/transmedia-seminar-registration
