Dr. Doris Bachmann-Medick receives prize of the Society for Intercultural German Studies
Dr. Doris Bachmann-Medick, Senior Research Fellow at the GCSC, has just won the prize for senior scholars of the Society for Intercultural German Studies (Gesellschaft für interkulturelle Germanistik – GIG), which was awarded for the first time for the year 2018.
Doris received the prize, endowed with a prize money of €2500, at this year's annual conference in Germersheim for her groundbreaking work at the intersection of translaton studies, interculturality, and interdisciplinarity. She currently explores this nexus in her work on migration as translation, in which she understands translation as a "trading zone" in intercultural encounters.
We at the GCSC wholeheartedly congratulate Doris for this great achievement!
