DFG Funding for Cathrine Bublatzky

Apr 16, 2018

Dr. Cathrine Bublatzky, Assistant Professor for Visual and Media Antropology at the HCTS, was granted funding by the German Research Council (DFG) for the network “Entangled Histories of Art and Migration: Forms, Visibilities, Agents”. The project brings together 15 scientists from anthropology, art history, and visual studies to research on migration and globalization.

“Entangled Histories of Art and Migration” sets out to conduct research on the interrelationship of migration and globalization as an important phenomenon of social transformation in the 20th and 21st centuries and in its role for art historical research and artistic production. In the upcoming 3 years, it will enhance the research on migration with art-historical perspectives and methodologies in a field that has been primarily focusing on social- and political scientific as well as anthropological studies.

The network connects therefore with recent international art historical migration research and outlines three central and overlapping fields of research that interweave histories of art and migration: 1. Forms and aesthetics of migration; 2. Actors in the field of migration; 3. Visibility: image politics and visualization strategies in the context of migration.

With regard to these research fields, which relate in major terms to the research foci of the network members, a total of six international workshops and a publication will contribute to establishing a long-term and lasting engagement with migration research in global art history, not least as a research field within migration studies, and to make it both nationally and internationally visible.

The network’s members are also part of the working group Art Production and Art Theory in the Age of Global Migration, and include Prof. Christiane Brosius, HCTS Professor of Visual and Media Anthropology, and Dr. Franziska Koch, Assistant Professor to the HCTS Professorship of Global Art History.

Further members of the working group "Art and Production and Art Theory in the Age of Global Migration" that form the network are Dr. Buket Altinoba, Prof. Burcu Dogramaci, Prof. Elke Gaugele, Prof. Gabriele Genge, Prof. Alexandra Karentzos, Dr. Alma-Elisa Kittner, Kerstin Meincke, Prof. Birgit Mersmann, Prof. Kerstin Pinther, Dr. Mona Schieren, Dr. Angela Stercken, apl. Prof. Melanie Ulz and Dr. Kea Wienand.

 

Dr. Bublatzky’s network project will be based at the Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies (HCTS).

It starts on November 1, 2018 and will continue for 3 years, funded by the German Research Council (DFG).
