Workshop: Home on the Move – Intersemiotic Translations of ‘Home’

Universidad Católica Lisbon, part of the conference Cultural Literacy & Cosmopolitan Conviviality, 16:30-18:00
Ricarda presented the project and invited participants to explore their own notions of home via intersemiotic translation. In four small groups, we analysed Zuzanna Janin’s and Ghenadie Popescu’s films. Each group then worked on an intersemiotic translation back into poetry. The groups produced three multilingual poems and a drawing, which were all presented at the end. This was followed by a discussion of the various transformations ‘home’ had undergone.
Our exhibition was on display throughout the conference, from 9-11 May.

Talk: Translation as movement – migration and notions of ‘home’
Ricarda Vidal and Manuela Perteghella, joint paper at (e)motion Cultural Literacy in Europe: Second Biennial Conference,
Whilst notions of home are changing and being challenged by globalisation, and therefore there is an urgency to redefine these, ‘home’ is at the same time still framed in contemporary political discourse within traditional ideas of identity and nationhood. Mainstream political thought still sees (or seeks to preserve a vision of) the nation – the homeland –  as organic, monolithic and above all ‘homogenous’.
Our paper investigated the politics around ‘home’ and migration in Britain – how it is talked about, written about and utilised – and looked at the role of translation as a way to contest the negative image of migration and demonstrate its potential for positive transformation.
