PLEASE NOTE: This event has been postponed from Friday, November 12 to Friday, November 19.
This colloquia series features three invited scholars conducting innovative work on intermediality, that is, interfaces between putatively separate media. Responding to an “intermedial turn” in the arts, the field of intermediality studies has grown significantly in recent years and offers entryways for scholars working across diverse fields, genres, media, and historical periods. Each speaker will circulate a recent article or book chapter to colloquia participants, who will have the opportunity to read the text in advance and prepare questions. Following a 15-minute presentation by the speaker, the bulk of the event will consist of Q&A with participants.
The final speaker is Karen Benezra (Leuphana Universität Lüneburg) who will explore Cybersyn and industrial design. Use the link below to register in advance.
