[sic!] Summer Institute Cologne - 2015: "Intermingling"
Classics, Early Modern, Theatre, Film & Media, Sound

August 24 - September 4, 2015

Cologne University (Schloß Wahn)

Cologne University’s international interdisciplinary Summer Institute [sic!] 2015 will take place from 24th of August to 4th of September, 2015. Participants and faculty of [sic!] 2015 will explore perspectives on Intermingling. We invite graduate and postgraduate students from Art History, English, German, History, Media, Film, Sound, Theatre, Performance, Classics, Cultural Studies, Literary Studies and related fields to apply for our international program.

There will be five seminars – each led by a pair of scholars from Northwestern University (Evanston, USA) and the University of Cologne (Germany) – in the fields of Classic, the Early Modern, Theatre, Film, and Sound. In addition to the seminars, [sic!] offers interdisciplinary academic workshops that allow for a dialogue with participants from across the seminars. Each participant can choose one seminar and one workshop, thus composing an individual study program. Seminars and workshops are enhanced by study trips, evening lectures by faculty, and poster presentations by students. All sessions will be conducted in English.

When Lévi-Strauss distinguished the bricoleur and the scientist by their differing attitude towards taxonomy, order, and clarity, he implicitly called for the ideal of tinkering – working with found materials, accepting the lack of homogeneity, the heterogeneity of material and concepts, and the visible seams and fragments in our argumentation. [sic!] 2015 focuses on Intermingling – this ever-happening but rarely mentioned phenomenon – with respect to our materials but also to our concepts and methods. With Intermingling, [sic!] 2015 proposes a term which is similar to concepts of interculturalism, intermediality, hybridity, and interstices, yet also different from them. Intermingling is not meant as a new concept, rather it shall be used as a tool by scholars and students from diverse fields to join a dialogue about patchworks, differences, heterogeneity, influences, transfer, and ‚odd’ knowledge.

Cinematic Fusion, Refusion, and Refusal: Migrant Films (made in Germany)

In films which originate under conditions of emigration, exile, and diaspora, "intermingling" is obviously a prevalent subject – as a matter of cultural contact, exchange, adaptation, rejection, backlash and reintegration. At the same time, the fusion, refusion and refusal of different zones of experience, cultures, histories, times and spaces is reflected on a cinematic level. The possible effects of migration and mixture on the aesthetics and narratives of the 'moving image' become particularly tangible in the – albeit fluid – rhetorics of what has been described as an "accented cinema" (Hamid Naficy).

The class deals with such interminglings in form and content using the example of 'German' films made since the 1970s by various generations and types of émigrés, exiles, and diaspora filmmakers. This may refer to filmmakers who were born outside Germany but moved here to live and work, as well as to those who were born in Germany but don't feel they fully belong either to Germany or to their ancestral homelands. To focus the course and to account for interminglings and confrontations from different religious contexts, the class is centered on films relating to a Middle Eastern background, e.g. Turkey (Tevik Baser, Yilmaz Arslan, Kutlug Ataman, Fatih Akin, Thomas Arslan, Ayse Polat), Iran (Sohrab Shahid Saless), and Palestine (Pary el-Qalqili).

Possible points of examination and discussion include:

• cinematic negotiations of the role of national identity and cultural background in relation to transnational imagery in migrant cinema: tropes of displacement and alienation, states of exception (imprisonment, sequestering, temporary dwelling, states of internment, waiting areas), scenarios of contact, hybrid linguistic situations, affective and coping strategies (nostalgia, passing, self-abdication, sociopathic behavior, death, violence, and suicide)
• documentary vs. fictional modes of representation, their combinations and permeability
• constructions of ethnic identity and their interplay with questions of gender and class
• generational difference and how it might have resulted in different types of movies with different narratives and aesthetics-accents
• travel (and tourism) as a narrative framing device to approach the experience of migration – including time-travel by use of historical material
• migrant cinema as a form of post-/colonial media theory.
