New Cluster promoted by University Of Bologna - DIT (Department of Interpreting and Translation in Forlì)


Conflicts and modernity in literature, cinema and new media

Cluster description:

This cluster focuses on representations of (social) conflicts and modernity through language and discourses. In particular, we would like to inspire thoughts about how social manifestations and practices effectively impact on society as a global multi-cultural whole and, more importantly, by which means they make such an impact. In line with MITN’s multidisciplinarity, we set out to thoroughly and fully examine issues of global and local conflict in literature, movies and new media.

Event in February

First cluster meeting: As a follow-up of the December workshop organised by Warwick, Monash and Bologna will organise a workshop together in mid-Feb 2017 in order to introduce and promote the new cluster. Provisionally the title of this workshop will be “Humour and Identity in Audiovisual Translation.” There will be a keynote speaker from Monash and another from Bologna, and we will advise you of who they are at a later stage.

For the cluster and the workshop info, please contact Gaia

Expression of Interest

for launching a research cluster on
Identity&Workplace (Communication) 
Some potential areas: 
How does identity become relevant to the workplace and affect professional practice?
How does identity gets constructed and negotiated in professional contexts?
How can we study identity in a workplace context?   
Please email Christina at Warwick and Chiara at Bologna for info and Olha at Monash if you would like to participate or to coordinate the cluster from Monash.
