Location:201D (ICSLAC Seminar Room) St. Patrick's Building
Key Contact:Rebecca Dolgoy

The Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis and the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC) invite you to attend the third session of the 2017-2018 Cultural Transfers Workshop series entitled, “Phenomenological Exchanges” on Friday February 16th, 2:00-4:00pm, in 201D Saint Patrick’s Building (ICSLAC Seminar Room).

This session will feature Dr. Rebecca Dolgoy (CTCA/ICI Berlin Postdoctoral Fellow) and Dino Koutras (Cultural Mediations PhD Candidate).

Workshops are organized as follows: two 20-minute presentations followed by a question/discussion period.

In this session we will explore various ways in which phenomenology resonates in interdisciplinary contexts. Dino Koutras will present a paper on “The Cinematic Imaginary: Ontology and Immanence in Film Theory” and, to follow up, Rebecca Dolgoy will use key concepts and texts developed in Dino’s presentation in her presentation, “Phenomenological Encounters in Berlin’s Neues Museum.”

After the presentations everyone will have the chance to think about the ways in which phenomenology might apply to their own research. To better prepare for the discussion, please take a look at the attached text (Introduction to Daniel Frampton’s Filmosophy), as well as Martin Heidegger’s foundational text, “Building, Dwelling, Thinking.”

Cultural Transfers is a workshop series co-organized by the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture and the Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis, Carleton University. Each session pairs student and faculty research as a way to examine intersections around related topics, methodologies, and/or research questions.
