1st annual conference of the SPP 213

More about the programme here.
To the report.
The lectures making up this conference form a colourful bouquet of SPP-compatible topics and backgrounds, with sections on such topics as “competitive migration and mission practices in the context of the Halle Pietists in the 18th century” and “educated competitions: rivalry and marginality in the knowledge history of the Early Modern era”. Our SPP project director Mark Häberlein (project ‘Salomon Negri’) will moreover offer an economic history section.
At this year's Germanistentag, the SPP is represented with its own panel. Regina Toepfer and Jörg Wesche begin by presenting the content and methodology of the SPP 2130 with regard to translation practice and epoch formation. Jennifer Hagedorn and Astrid Dröse then examine the category of ‘time’ as illustrated by their individual German studies projects. Finally, in her didactic contribution Kerstin Brix talks about how the ‘Translation Cultures of the Early Modern Period’ can also be integrated into German lessons at school (programme).
Symposium at the end of the pilot phase of the project ‘Crossing Borders in the Insular Middle Ages’ (funded by a Humboldt Alumni Award for Innovative Network Initiatives, 2016-19), organised by Dr Victoria Flood (University of Birmingham) and Dr Aisling Byrne (University of Reading).
As an active member of the network group, Dr Elena Parina (co-leader of the SPP project ‘Translating into Welsh’) gives the lecture “Welsh Texts about the Assumption of the Virgin Mary from the long Middle Ages and their Insular Context”.
The Devision of Intercultural German Studies in the Department of Translation, Linguistics and Cultural Studies at the JGU Mainz invites you to this year's conference of the Society for Intercultural German Studies (GIG) in Germersheim.

As part of the panel “Ottoman Polotical Economy in the Mediterranean” (programme) Irena Fliter (SPP project ‘Camondo family’) gives a lecture on the competing understandings of belonging and exclusion in the Mediterranean trade. Specifically, the paper shows the Ottoman Jewish Camondo family mediated the ambiguous notions of subject-hood and diplomatic protection to safeguard their possessions and foster their buisnesses.
›World literature as translated Literature‹: This postulate perhaps best expresses a transnational and global approach to literature, in which the figure of the translator – as a nomad of multilingualism – plays a central role in the dissemination of literature. The DLA Marbach houses the unpublished documents and manuscripts of numerous translators and archive holdings directly related to literary translation. On this background the aim of the conference in Marbach is to systematically investigate documents left behind by (literary) translators and to explore their value for research.
The conference is conceived as a double event. Immediately following the conference at Marbach, there will be a corresponding conference at the IMEC in Caen. The latter will focus on the translation of texts from the social sciences and humanities.
