Situated in Translations

Cultural Communities and Media Practices

Cultural communities are shaped and produced by ongoing processes of translation understood as aesthetic media practices – such is the premise of this volume. Taking on perspectives from cultural, literary and media studies as well as postcolonial theory, the chapters shed light on composite cultural and heterotypical translation processes across various media, such as texts, films, graphic novels, theater and dance performances. Thus, the authors explore the cultural contexts of diverse media milieus in order to explain how cultural communities come into being.
