Abstract

"The Power of the In-Between: Intermediality as a Tool for Aesthetic Analysis and Critical Reflection gathers fourteen individual case studies where intermedial issues—issues concerning that which takes place in between media—are explored in relation to a range of different cultural objects and contexts, different methodological approaches, and different disciplinary perspectives. The cases investigate the intermediality of such manifold objects and phenomena as contemporary installation art, twentieth-century geography books, renaissance sculpture, media theory, and public architecture of the 1970s. They also bring together scholars from the disciplines of art history, comparative literature, theatre studies, musicology, and the history of ideas. Starting out from an inclusive understanding of intermediality as “relations between media conventionally perceived as different,” each author specifies and investigates “intermediality” in their own particular case; that is, each examines how it is inflected by particular objects, methods, and research questions. “Intermediality” thus serves both as a concept employed to cover an inclusive range of cultural objects, cultural contexts, methodological approaches, and so on, and as a concept to be modelled out by the particular cases it is brought to bear on. Rather than merely applying a predefined concept, the objectives are experimental. The authors explore the concept of intermediality as a malleable tool of research. This volume further makes a point of transgressing the divide between media history and semiotically and/or aesthetically oriented intermedial studies. The former concerns the specificity of media technologies and media interrelations in socially, politically, and epistemologically defined space and time, and the latter targets formal considerations of media objects and its various meaning-making elements. These two conventionally separated fields of research are integrated in order to produce a richer understanding of the analytical and historical, as well as the aesthetic and technological, conditions and possibilities of intermedial phenomena.

Abstract

How can videogames portray love and loss? »Games and Bereavement« answers this question by analysing five videogames and conducting a participatory design study with grievers. Sabine Harrer offers both theoretical and practical perspectives on videogames and grief and suggests a design model for videogames to include grievers into game development. Overall, she explores how videogames can be used as contemporary medium for personal storytelling.

Abstract

Big Brother kündigt die 'reality soap' als ein exemplarisches Unterhaltungsformat der Multimedialität an, das von der Faszination durch den Alltag zehrt. Wenn 'reality' zur 'soap' und 'soap' zur 'reality' wird, dann versagen die herkömmlichen Kategorien der Kulturkritik: Statt Flucht in Traumwelten bietet Big Brother den (eigenen) Alltag als Zufluchtsort an. Die hier versammelten Beiträge nehmen diese Provokation auf und erproben neue Perspektiven, um der Faszination durch Big Brother nachgehen zu können.

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

In der Studie wird die aktuelle Medien- und Rezeptionsforschung - insbesondere im Kontext der Cultural Studies - mit der Geschlechterforschung verknüpft. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Frage, wie sich das Verhältnis zwischen der strukturellen »Macht der Medien« und der Handlungsmacht der Zuschauenden mit Blick auf das Fernsehen neu denken lässt. Der Band leistet damit einen Beitrag zu einer kritischen Fernsehforschung, die sich über die jeweiligen Disziplinengrenzen hinweg für neue methodische und theoretische Zugänge öffnet.

Abstract

In recent years, spectacular images of ruined boats, makeshift border camps, and beaches littered with life vests have done much to consolidate the politics of movement in Europe. Indeed, the mediation of migration as a crisis has worked to shore up various forms of militarized surveillance, humanitarian response, legislative action, and affective investment. Bridging academic inquiry and artistic and activist practice, the essays, documents, and artworks gathered in Moving Images interrogate the mediation of migration and refugeeism in the contemporary European conjuncture, asking how images, discourses, and data are involved in shaping the visions and experience of migration in increasingly global contexts.

Abstract

House of Cards, Borgen und Co. – seit einiger Zeit boomen Fernsehserien, die explizit den politischen Betrieb fokussieren. Diese erreichen nicht nur ein akademisches Nischenpublikum, sondern erzielen insgesamt hohe Zuschauerquoten. Die Beiträge des Bandes analysieren, wie der Gegenstand Politik in den Serien aufgegriffen und als Material für ihre auf Unterhaltung ausgerichteten Erzählungen aufgearbeitet wird. Über die Auseinandersetzung mit popkulturellen Produkten zeigen sie, wie politische Bilder in populären Filmen und Serien konstruiert und reproduziert werden und wie diese sich auf Wahrnehmungen und Vorstellungen von Politik auswirken. Das Interesse gilt dabei den konstruierten Bildern von Politik im Allgemeinen, aber auch den sich darin äußernden nationalen Besonderheiten.

Abstract

''Although practices of editing and mentoring are part of an author's daily activities, they have previously been largely neglected by the literary studies. The bilingual volume therefore assembles players from the fields of literary production and theories of authorship and the writing process, who discuss the development towards an opening up of the creative writing process. Their contributions encompass not only reports of experiences made by authors, editors, and mentors and insights into teaching methods applied in creative writing classes at higher education institutions in different European countries. They also explore theoretical approaches to an intersubjective literary practice as well as suggestions for the definition of a dialogic notion of literature in the age of online publishing.

Abstract

Automated facial recognition algorithms are increasingly intervening in society. This book offers a unique analysis of these algorithms from a critical visual culture studies perspective. The first part of this study examines the example of an early facial recognition algorithm called »eigenface« and traces a history of the merging of statistics and vision. The second part addresses contemporary artistic engagements with facial recognition technology in the work of Thomas Ruff, Zach Blas, and Trevor Paglen. This book argues that we must take a closer look at the technology of automated facial recognition and claims that its forms of representation are embedded with visual politics. Even more significantly, this technology is redefining what it means to see and be seen in the contemporary world.
