POTENTIALS, PROBLEMS AND POINTS TO CONSIDER
8–11 December 2020, University of Tartu, Estonia
As the title of the conference indicates, the central topic of inquiry is the cultural shift from logocentric to increasingly intersemiotic, intermedial and transmedial processes and its impact on disciplines that study textual transfers, relations between semiotic systems or media, and new media practices. We foreground the notion ‘transmedia’ – with its prefix trans- meaning ‘across’, ‘beyond’, ‘through’ – to highlight the ubiquity of processes and phenomena of media crossovers.
The conference aims at bringing together scholars from disciplines interested in textual transfers across languages, genres and media, among them Translation Studies, Semiotics, and Adaptation Studies, and to promote a more complex understanding of the transmedial processes and phenomena in culture, particularly of the diverse and novel theoretical perspectives, concepts and methods used in various disciplines for approaching these processes and phenomena.

The conference is still going to take place on 8-11 December 2020. However, with everyone’s safety as our highest priority and not being able to predict what the autumn will bring in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now heading towards an online conference.
