Since 2004, the theoretical framework of TransArea Studies has evolved through a variety of conferences and publications, as well as national and international cooperations. In 2011, the website »POINTS - Potsdam International Network for TransArea Studies« (uni-potsdam.de/tapoints) was launched. It is now the central place of information for all activities concerned with TransArea Studies.
The video interview was conceptualized, prepared, and filmed by Jan Schmieder, Maria-Anna Schiffers, Nina Hübner, and Sebastián Roldán. It was produced as part of the graduate course "Broadcasting Science: video interviews on key concepts of TransArea Studies" (instructor: Tobias Kraft) at the Universität Potsdam.
