Contemporary Jewish Women’s Writing in Germany and Austria – A ‘Minor’ Literature?

This one-day workshop aims to probe whether the label and concept of a ‘minor literature’ (Deleuze/Guattari, 1975) can be usefully applied to contemporary writing by female Jewish authors in Germany and Austria. The workshop will explore what the term ‘minor’ could mean and contribute when discussing a broad range of contemporary authors and their aesthetics and writing practices, images of the self/the other inside and outside of their works, forms of community building, and their relationship with the broader literary field (i.e. the literary market).

Cape Verde Islands: Language situation and teaching of Portuguese

Dr Jorge Pinto (University of Lisbon) This seminar focuses on the language situation in Cape Verde. Portuguese pidgins were the first Romance pidgins to emerge and gave rise to creoles throughout the world. Since independence, the role and status of Cape Verdean Creole (Kabuverdianu) have increased, and the language is used in domains previously reserved for Portuguese, e.g., formal religious and political discourse. Portuguese is used on television and radio, as well as in education, where it is the primary language of instruction throughout all levels.

PROCESS PHILOSOPHY - 2

This seminar investigates the relation between thought, spontaneity and movement - in short, living thought, or thought thinking experience. Spontaneity and movement are nothing fixed, and so it seems that a philosophical understanding of them must also itself be, at least to some extent, a fluid, moving or spontaneous understanding. What is required, it seems, is an unprincipled, an-archic form of thought: '"life" cannot be a defining characteristic. It is a name for originality, and not for tradition' (Whitehead). Perhaps we are moving outside of the realm of conceptual, discursive reason when we try to think spontaneous movement: 'process cannot be directly thought due to the static, form-endowing character of reason, anymore than permanence can be directly felt, due to the dynamic, form-excluding character of intuition' (David Hall). It could be that the awareness of movement leads us to draw quite specific limitations to what philosophical understanding can achieve and to open ...

A Home Lost - a New Life Found? Kindertransport: Experience and Fiction

Speakers: Dr Andrea Hammel (Aberystwyth), Stephanie Homer (IMLR), Ursula Krechel (Berlin) and Ruth Barnett (London) The Kindertransport enabled nearly 10,000 child refugees to flee from Nazi-occupied territories to the UK in 1938-39. It is remembered as a life-shaping experience of the loss of a homeland, of parents, family and friends ̶ and of the finding of refuge and eventually a new life in the UK. This event brings together Kindertransportee Ruth Barnett and Ursula Krechel, the German author whose novel Landgericht is based on documents detailing Barnett’s family story (it won the German Book Prize in 2012). The evening includes the showing of extracts of the TV adaptation of the novel (in German, with English subtitles). Short introductory talks provide background on the history and memory of the Kindertransport (Dr Andrea Hammel) and on the treatment of the Kindertransport in fiction (Stephanie Homer). The event concludes with an opportunity to discuss issues of loss and be...

Translating Development - Translators in Development NGOs

Translating Development Introduction Hilary Footitt (University of Reading) Panel 1: Translators in Development NGOs Chair: Wine Tesseur Alberto Sanz Martins (Translations manager, Oxfam GB) Jessica Matthews (Internal communications officer, Family for Every Child) Patricia Sommer (Freelance translator) Verity Leonard Hill (Translations manager, Save the Children) This seminar aims to provide a forum for translators working in the area of development and NGOs to talk about their work, and to discuss the challenges that it involves. It will bring key translation studies specialists and trainers into dialogue with practitioners, and it will inform broader translation networks, including the ITI, about translation in the field of development. Translation is an area that has been generally overlooked and underfunded in NGOs. Previous workshops at the University of Reading (2014) and Aston University (2015), in which NGO practitioners and translators from various organisations participat...
