“Rural Mediascapes” or “Mediating and Translating”

The event is the forth within a series of workshops that are provided by the interdisciplinary network “Love, Work, and Violence”. This forum actively tries to transcend conventional boundaries of epochs and wants to discuss the output and limits of theoretical perspectives in connection with profound empirical studies. Love, work and violence are keywords for this endeavor. They allow the group to translate theoretical concepts into different empirical contexts. The network offers several possibilities of working formats and cooperation in the field of rural studies.

At the centre of this year’s workshop are different approaches that address conceptualizations and constructions of mediating and translating. The workshop combines two working formats or procedural methods. The first part of the meeting is dedicated to the discussion of concepts and different theoretical approaches whereas the second examines their applicability and heuristic strength on the basis of empirical studies. A collection of theoretical readings on the one hand, as well as presentations of empirical studies carried out by network colleagues on the other, serve as basis for our discussions.
