Abstract

How did the imperial logic underlying British and Indian film policy change with the British Empire’s loss of moral authority and political cohesion? Were British and Indian films of the 1930s and 1940s responsive to and responsible for such shifts? Cinema at the End of Empire illuminates this intertwined history of British and Indian cinema in the late colonial period. Challenging the rubric of national cinemas that dominates film studies, Priya Jaikumar contends that film aesthetics and film regulations were linked expressions of radical political transformations in a declining British empire and a nascent Indian nation. As she demonstrates, efforts to entice colonial film markets shaped Britain’s national film policies, and Indian responses to these initiatives altered the limits of colonial power in India.

Abstract

Gaze Regimes is a bricolage of essays and interviews showcasing the experiences of women working in film, either directly as practitioners or in other areas such as curators, festival programme directors or fundraisers. It does not shy away from questioning the relations of power in the practice of filmmaking and the power invested in the gaze itself. Who is looking and who is being looked at, who is telling women’s stories in Africa and what governs the mechanics of making those films on the continent?&#xD;&#xD;The interviews with film practitioners such as Tsitsi Dangarembga, Taghreed Elsanhouri, Jihan El-Tahri, Anita Khanna, Isabel Noronhe, Arya Lalloo and Shannon Walsh demonstrate the contradictory points of departure of women in film – from their understanding of feminisms in relation to lived-experiences and the realpolitik of women working as cultural practitioners. Jyoti Mistry, Antje Schuhmann, Nobunye Levin, Dorothee Wenner and Christina von Braun are some of the contributors.&#xD;

Abstract

Knowledge formations are always also image information. Scientific processes of knowledge therefore belong to a cultural practice that encompasses both visual and knowledge traditions. The essays collected in this volume examine scientific and artistic visualizations in the transitional zones between art and science and thus combine historical and pictorial issues. The topics range from microscopy in popular science books of the 17th and 18th centuries and the debate about ghost photography in the late 19th century to visualizations of the tobacco mosaic virus in the present.

Abstract

Wahrnehmung, Kognition und Ästhetik lassen sich als differente Verarbeitungs- und Ausdrucksformen einer biologischen Basisausstattung des Menschen verstehen. Ob diese stabil sind oder ob sie kulturell überformt oder gar transformiert werden, bildet die zentrale medienanthropologische Fragestellung des Bandes. Dabei wird geprüft, welcher Art die wechselseitigen Impulse sind, die zu kulturellen und biologischen Veränderungen führen können, welche Wirkung sie besitzen und welche Dauer ihnen zukommt. Diese Fragen richten sich nicht allein auf Prozesse wahrnehmungstechnischer, kognitiver oder ästhetischer Habitualisierungen, sondern thematisieren deren physiologische Voraussetzungen. Mit der Beteiligung ausgewiesener Forscher aus den Bereichen Biologie, Medizin und Hirnforschung erschließt dieser Band Neuland im Grenzgebiet der Natur- und Kulturwissenschaften.

Abstract

Gegenwärtig findet in Deutschland ein sozialer Umbruch statt: Der Anteil der Migranten an der Bevölkerung ist stark gewachsen und er wird noch weiter wachsen. Die Gesellschaft steht vor der Herausforderung, diese ethnischen Minderheiten zu integrieren. Massenmedien, die sich aufgrund ihrer Ausdifferenzierung ebenfalls in einem Umbruch befinden, spielen bei diesem Integrationsprozess eine wichtige Rolle. Der Band klärt das umstrittene Konzept der Integration durch Massenmedien, gibt einen Überblick über den Forschungsstand und enthält eine auf Vollständigkeit angelegte Bibliographie der wissenschaftlichen Literatur zum Thema Medien und Integration von Migranten.

Abstract

Musealisierung und Geschichte sind zwei unterschiedliche Modi der Aneignung der Vergangenheit. Sie beschreiben gemeinsam das komplexe Verhältnis unserer Gegenwart zur Vergangenheit. Die Beiträge des Bandes beleuchten unterschiedliche Aspekte dieses Verhältnisses aus interdisziplinärer kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive und fokussieren sie auf die Institution Museum. Damit liefert das Buch einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur aktuellen kulturellen Diskussion um die Rolle des Museums in der gegenwärtigen Gesellschaft. Mit Beiträgen von Boris Groys, Gottfried Korff, Hermann Lübbe, Lutz Niethammer und Ulrich Raulff.

Abstract

Considering the abundant promises and euphoric expectations (as well as apocalyptic visions of technology) that still dominate discourses on media and technology my analysis focuses on their cultural and social condition, the specific moment of their emergence, their continuous persistence, their socio-symbolic function, and their implications for social contexts of thought and perception and for hegemonic relations. The techno-deterministic notion of a ‚paradigm change', the proclamation of a ‚radically new' definition of the subject and the idea of a technically conditioned abolition of traditional dichotomies is in fact contrasted by a striking adherence to conventional and dichotome models of thought and of representation, and to the idea of an autonomous and technologically perfectionable subject.&#xD;&#xD;My analysis will on the one hand focus on the function of exaggerated visions of technological development (predicating a dissolution of space, time, matter and identity) and the function of ideas of ‚alternative', ‚virtual' ‚spaces' for establishing specific notions of ‚society' - indicating a specific relation of phantasm and symptom as I will show. On the other hand I will develop the definition of a political subject - not conceived as a sovereign actor, nor as an arbitrary variety, but rather as constituted on the basis of a structural impossibility inherent in language and which alone can be, due to this very impossibility or antagonism a subject of the political. In the course of this argument the notion of sexual difference will be critically revised. Furthermore I will develop a definition of agency adequate to provide the grounds and the argumentative tools for the contestability of cultural and social constructs. My emphasis will be on the interdependencies of these questions and I will base my arguments on a notion of Cyberspace that defines it as a socio-symbolic construct comprising both technical implementations as well as the respective discourses and which continuously has to be negotiated. &#xD;&#xD;My approach combines structural psychoanalytical theory, hegemony studies, art theory, film theory, media studies, gender studies and cultural studies. As a transdisciplinary critical theory of representation and considering its statement of problems, as well as its focus, it differs from predominant approaches to current developments of technology to create perspectives on current technological dispositives and media constellations beyond prevalent techno-euphoric or pessimistic views.&#xD;

Abstract

Nach 1918 stützen sich zahlreiche Versuche, einen Begriff von der »Moderne« zu entwickeln, auf die Zuweisung neuer Sinnpotenziale an den Körper. In der Lebensreformbewegung wird der Körper zum Inbegriff von Natürlichkeit, der Wettkampfsport richtet ihn am Kriterium der Effizienz aus, und die entstehende Modeindustrie macht den Leib zur Ware. Die Kunst und die neuen Massenmedien bieten diesen Positionen ideale Foren zur Austragung ihres symbolischen Streits. Der bebilderte, umfangreiche Band führt die wesentlichen Körperkonstrukte der zwanziger Jahre erstmals zusammen und analysiert sie vom Maschinenmensch über die FKK-Ästhetik und den Mannequin-Körper bis zum Ausdruckstanz in mehr als 20 Ausprägungen.

Abstract

In jüngster Zeit suchen Erziehungswissenschaftler/innen immer häufiger die Auseinandersetzung mit aktuellen literarischen Texten. Dabei zeigt sich, dass die Öffnung des pädagogischen Diskurses für Gegenwartsromane nicht nur dessen Selbstreflexion stimuliert, sondern auch Chancen birgt, neue Einsichten über den eigenen Gegenstandsbereich zu gewinnen. Die experimentellen Lektüren zeitgenössischer Literatur nehmen daher die Form einer Spurensuche an: Was verraten die Romane von Imre Kertész, Zeruya Shalev, Uwe Timm, Paula Fox und anderen über die gegenwärtigen Formen von Kindheit und Jugend, von Erziehung, Bildung und Sozialisation?
