Ank.: Media Archaeology – Ruptures and Relations (Karlstad, 03.02.2017)

Workshop, Friday, 3 February 2017, 11am-6pm, Karlstad University, Room: Minerva, 12C608

What is media archaeology (good for)? In recent years, the term has become something of a catch-phrase, being employed all the way from an expanded cinema history to techno-materialist hardware studies. We have invited international experts to debate the use and value of an approach that wants to investigate the epistemological basis of our current media situation. The aim of the workshop is to explore how the concept has transformed during the transfer between different countries and disciplines (film, media, literature, art, cultural studies) – and how it at the same time can be used to connect varying research contexts.
