CFP: Rethinking German-Turkish Cinema

Third German Studies Workshop

26-27 March 2010

Department of Germanic Studies
University of Texas at Austin

Organizer: Sabine Hake

The past twenty years have seen the emergence of German-Turkish cinema
as an integral part of postunification German cinema and transnational
European cinema. Today Fatih Akin is considered one of the most
innovative German directors, whereas Thomas Arslan, Yilmaz Arslan,
YŁksel Yavuz, Ayse Polat, and Seyhan Derin provide filmic perspectives
on the problems of first-, second-, and third-generation immigrants.
In the same way that filmmakers, by playing with genre conventions and
aesthetic registers, have moved beyond the early focus on guest
workers and victim narratives, scholars have shifted toward an
analysis of the hybrid identities mapped out by what is alternately
called migrant cinema, diasporic cinema or accented cinema. But while
the conventions of a "cinema of duty" have been left behind in favor
of the "pleasures of hybridity", analyses still focus primarily on
questions of identity, whether defined as ethnic, multiethnic, or
postethnic. Similarly, despite the radical expansion of space and
subjectivity, the filmic scenarios of mobility, displacement, and
belonging continue to be framed in the binary terms of alterity or
in-betweenness. And while German-Turkish cinema has played a central
role in the reconceptualization of European cinema, including its
modes of production and exhibition, scholarly debates are still
dominated by narrative and thematic analyses. It is one of the goals
of this workshop to open up the scholarship on Turkish-German film
toward cultural studies readings, reception studies, performance
theories, institutional histories, formal analyses, and comparative
perspectives.

In this two-day workshop, we want to take stock of more than thirty
years of German-Turkish filmmaking, reassess some of the concepts that
have informed critical engagement with these films, and identify
topics and areas for future research. For that reason, we are looking
for 45-minute presentations on ongoing research projects; the workshop
contributions will be published in an anthology. Of particular
interest are presentations on the following topics:

-- German-Turkish actors and the performativity of (post)ethnicity,
-- the role of film criticism and film festivals in the making of
German-Turkish cinema,
-- intersections between German-Turkish film and literature,
-- Turkish-German perspectives on television, documentary, and the essay film,
-- film subsidies, co-productions, and new models of film authorship,
-- the exhibition, promotion, and marketing of German-Turkish films,
-- film audiences and the question of spectatorship and identification,
-- German-Turkish cinema in the context of a transnational European
cinema, and
-- comparative studies with other accented cinemas (Britain Asian,
Beur Cinema).

The organizers will pay for hotel accommodations, all meals, and
ground transportation in Austin.
