Meet Stefan Nowotny

As we continue unveiling the academic speakers a tour September 29 symposium, and we are happy to start September with Dr. Stefan Nowotny from Goldsmiths, University of London.

A philosopher by formation, Dr. Nowotny has worked at universities in Belgium (Louvain-la-Neuve), Germany (Lüneburg) and Austria (Klagenfurt) since 2001, and collaborated on several international projects. Since 2000, he has been involved with the European Institute for Progressive Cultural Policies, a transnational network of European scholars, activists and institutions reflecting on the shared spaces, movements and transformations in the continent.

Dr. Nowotny teaches in the department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, and his research focuses on “political theory, the linguistic and social complexities of translation and the entanglements of historical and contemporary epistemologies and imaginaries.” Given his interest in the cultural and political dimensions of translation, combined with his interest in collaborative and participatory forms of art (a topic that is close not only to our hearts, but also that of our artist guests), we look forward to hearing his contribution on “Tales and Silences: Revisiting the Task of Translation”.
