H-SAE: Summer School “Seeing Matter(s): Materiality and Visuality” (Heidelberg, July 29-August 4, 2012)

The way images and objects spread across geographical and cultural
boundaries is the subject of a summer school organised by Heidelberg
University’s Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context”
in late July. Advanced students and doctoral candidates from the
humanities and social sciences will be given the opportunity to discuss
topical research issues in this field with academics from Germany, Canada,
India, and the United States. The deadline for applications to participate
in the school is 15 April 2012.

The summer school is entitled “Seeing Matter(s): Visuality and
Materiality” and will take place from 29 July to 4 August 2012 in
Heidelberg, Germany. The programme encompasses lectures, seminars and
workshops. In terms of content, the emphasis is on the role and impact of
visual and material culture. Among the topics addressed at the school are
the formation of material worlds, the portrayal of intimacy and the
exposition of images and objects in exhibitions and performances.

Invited speakers include Kajri Jain (South Asian Visual Culture,
University of Toronto Mississauga), Sumathi Ramaswamy (History, Duke
University), Kavita Singh (Art History, Jawaharlal Nehru University), and
Paola Zamperini (Asian Languages and Civilizations, Amherst College).
Contributions from Heidelberg University come from Christiane Brosius
(Visual and Media Anthropology), Monica Juneja (Global Art History),
Barbara Mittler (Chinese Studies), and Melanie Trede (Japanese Art
Histories).

The Cluster’s Summer School 2012 is organised by Christiane Brosius
(Heidelberg) together with Barbara Mittler (Heidelberg) and Sumathi
Ramaswamy (Duke), coordinators of project B4 “Transcultural Visuality”.
