Racial translation in intersectionality’s and hip-hop’s eastward travels. The case of Russophone grassroots feminist translations of intersectionality and Timati’s hip-hop

Dear friends and colleagues,

the FEMCORUS research project team invites you to our next hybrid seminar organized as a part of the FEMCORUS seminar series.

Dinara Yangeldina will present the topic "Racial translation in intersectionality’s and hip-hop’s eastward travels. The case of Russophone grassroots feminist translations of intersectionality and Timati’s hip-hop"

Dinara is working on her PhD project at SKOK (Bergen Univesity, Norway) and is a member of the research group Fundamental Questions in Gender Research. Her PhD project is dedicated to how Anglophone racial categories and the idiom of 'race as resistance' travel through intersectional feminist activism and pop culture (hip-hop). She proposes a framework of racial translation to interrogate this process and looks at two distinct racial translation projects: a grassroots Russophone intersectional feminist community engaged in English to Russian translation and adaptation of US-American intersectional feminist discourses and racial categories, and the main antagonist of Russian hip-hop authenticity, Tatar-Jewish rapper Timati, who brought US Black aesthetics into post-Soviet Russia.

The event will take place on Thursday 10 November 2022, 2-4 p.m. (GMT +3) in a hybrid format at Tampere University, building Pinni B and via Zoom.

Please register in advance. To participate, fill in the form and a link to Zoom as well as location information will be sent to you.
