5 November 2018

The Intercultural Confluences Research Centre of the Department of Humanities, Faculty of Economics, Socio-Human Sciences and Engineering, Miercurea Ciuc, Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania, organizes the international conference Köztes terek / Spaţii intermediare / Spaces In Between in three languages in the campus of Miercurea Ciuc/Csíkszereda, Romania, on 26-27 April, 2019.

Submission of abstracts until 31 January, 2019.

In the past decades, especially since the turn of the millennium, multiple passages have been created among the branches of social and cultural studies. The aim of the conference series organized by the Intercultural Confluences Research Centre of the Department of Humanities is to map the notions and views that make possible these connections, and to test their effectiveness not only within the framework of cultural studies, in the area of interculturality, but also in several other domains (literary history, literary theory, translation studies, applied linguistics, discourse analysis, pragmatics, text linguistics, cross-linguistic analysis, film and media studies).

The conference that will take place on 26‒27 April 2019 proposes to think further the central topic of the previous conference organized by the research centre ‒ Border Crossings ‒, this time focusing on Spaces In Between. The ontologically determining experience of in-betweenness is reflected in diverse ways and displays manifold configurations in several contemporary literary, linguistic, social and medial phenomena. In the light of processes unfolding in the global and digital culture of our days, the idea of in-betweenness does not reinforce binary logic and opposite poles but rather implies passages, overlaps, crossing and meeting points, simultaneities and convergences.

Contrary to the constraints of dichotomous thinking, Andrei Pleşu speaks about an intermediary space which is “the space of faith, the space of a potential encounter between earth and heavens. This is the interval in which the angels move up and down, on Jacob’s ladder” (Despre îngeri [On Angels], Humanitas, 2003, 20). In relation to interculturality, the experience of the space in between does not manifest in the opposition of the own and the other but rather through the recognition of the other in one’s own, and vice versa, the own in the other. In the context of postcolonialism, the third space (Homi Bhabha) refers to the space where the relations of colonial oppositions are restructured, meanings and qualities become ambiguous, thus the forms of hybridization result in shared socio-cultural spaces in which the possibilities of cohabitation and mediation become nuanced.

The relativity and plurality of social identity formation, the figurations of in-betweenness in literary works, the modes of linguistic contact, the symbiosis of media all attest that in-betweenness is a fundamental experience of culture. It creates manifold, complex systems and patterns in the spaces in-between the self and the other, life and art, reality and fiction/virtuality. Our conference aims to create a forum to debate reflections, dilemmas, case studies, evaluative surveys and new paths in connection with all the above issues.

We cordially invite you to join in!

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

  • passages, transitions, transgressions between cultures;
  • processes of identity formation, marginal cultures, minority identity;
  • figurations of in-betweenness in contemporary literature;
  • reception, understanding, in-betweenness in dialogue;
  • metaleptic transgressions at the boundary of fiction and reality;
  • spaces in between high and popular literature;
  • in-between space configurations: border zones, heterotopias, non-places;
  • in-between spaces of history and historical memory;
  • passages between culture and nature, ecocriticism;
  • generic in-betweenness, hybridity, heterogeneity;
  • problems of linguistic and cultural mediation;
  • linguistic dimensions of spaces in between;
  • translanguaging, translingual communication;
  • bilingualism, multilingualism and spaces of language use;
  • virtual/digital textuality;
  • language uses and linguistic variety;
  • linguistic code-switching, hybrid language use;
  • interart relations, intermediality, multimediality, medial in-betweenness.
