Ankündigungstext:
Unter dem Titel “Vom Samizdat zum Tamizdat” widmet sich eine dreitägige Konferenz dem Transfer von Schriftgut zwischen dem östlichen und westlichen Europe (sowie transatlantisch) während des Kalten Krieges. Ausgehend vom schriftlichem Tranfer nutzt das Konferenzprojekt das Begriffspaar„ samizdat/tamizdat“ als Symbol des kulturellen Transfers und möchte sich einer Vielfalt kultureller Projekte widmen, denen der Versuch der Überwindung ideologischer, politischer und kultureller Grenzen während des Kalten Krieges gemein war. Um eine Brücke nach heute zu schlagen, soll ein Blick auf heutige Formen von transnationaler bzw. Untergrundkommunikation geworfen werden. Die Konferenz, die gemeinsam mit dem Institut für vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft an der Universität Stanford, dem Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung, Potsdam und dem Geschichtsdepartment der Central European University in Budapest organisiert wird, spürt dem Erbe dieser historischen Form von transnationaler Kommunikation nach und fragt, in welcher Form Samizdat und Tamizdat heute produziert werden.

The three-day conference “From Samizdat to Tamizdat” is dedicated to an analysis of the movement of printed material between Eastern and Western Europe (as well as across the Atlantic) during the Cold War. The project will deliberately expand the definition of “samizdat and tamizdat” and use it as a symbol of cultural transfer for analyzing a broad variety of cultural projects that shared the common character of crossing ideological, political or cultural borders during the Cold War. In order to establish a link to nowadays media, we propose to compare underground circulation of uncensored texts during the Cold War with evolving forms of journalism today, looking at new media and new forms of underground communication. The conference, organized in collaboration with the Department of Comparative Literature at Stanford University, the Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung, Potsdam and the Department of History at Central European University, Budapest asks for the legacy of these historical forms of transnational communication and where samizdat and tamizdat might be produced today.
