MASTERCLASS 3: Transcultural Translations: Emerging Netcultures in Pan-African Perspective


 Following an introductory overview of current xm:lab projects across Africa, the Masterclass offers an opportunity to work/rework the concept of ‘transcultural media studies’ in relation to specific sites / situations. Emphasis will be placed on the intersections of media and sustainability.

Participants are invited to chose a site / situation that demonstrates or illustrates how questions of digital media and sustainability intersect. In the workshop, participants will be invited to develop a concrete approach / project to address / reflect on specific modalities of conceptual / political engagement.
