In the summer of 2018, both Kira Thurman and Kristin Dickinson will be fellows at the IFK in Vienna. The IFK (Internationales Forschungszentrum Kulturwissenschaften / International Research Centre for Cultural Studies) is currently in its 25th year as one of Austria’s premier research institutions. Fellows work on thematically defined cluster—this year’s theme is “cultures of translation”—and on their own research. Both Thurman and Dickinson will be in residence for several months, advancing their research projects on black classical musicians in central Europe and on the history of German-Turkish connectivity through translation, respectively.
