On the Circulation and Competition of Literary Picture-Making across the Americas
Mit Birgit Weyhe, André Diniz, Marcelo D’Salete und Lea Hübner
Internationale Konferenz in englischer Sprache
The international conference »Imagining the Black Diaspora« brings together authors, comic artists, a comic translator, and scholars from the fields of American Studies, African American Studies, Latin American Studies, and Media Studies to discuss the circulation and distribution, the cultural and political economies, the aesthetic diversity and the community-shaping effects of pictures and imagery in Black diasporic literature across the Americas.
»Imagining the Black Diaspora« will be divided into two interrelated parts that will take place at two different venues in Berlin: On Thursday, January 9, the participants will meet at Literarisches Colloquium Berlin to discuss the literary works of Birgit Weyhe (Germany), André Diniz and Marcelo D’Salete (both of Brazil) with the authors and translator Lea Hübner. On Friday, January 10, the discussion will be brought to the FU Berlin with speakers Herman Bennett (CUNY), Dustin Breitenwischer (FU Berlin/EXC 2020), Ana Merino (Iowa), Nina Mickwitz (London), Robert Reid-Pharr (Harvard), Daniel Stein (Siegen), and Jasmin Wrobel (FU Berlin/ EXC 2020). The event will be documented by the Chilean comic artist Panchulei (Francisca Cárcamo). Organised by Dustin Breitenwischer and Jasmin Wrobel.
