Lezing Richard Grusin (Remediation)

Richard Grusin (co-auteur van Remediation) houdt een lezing bij de Universiteit van Amsterdam op 18 mei. Grusin: "This talk is drawn from my recently completed book, Premediation: Affect and Mediality after 9/11, which takes up where my earlier, co-authored study of new media, Remediation: Understanding New Media, left off. Premediation extends the theoretical concerns of Remediation to the period after 9/11, attending to the ways in which print, televisual, and networked media mobilize individual and collective affect in an era of heightened securitization. The book expands upon my 2004 article, "Premediation," in which I set out to explain the geopolitical and medialogical inevitability that prevailed in the run-up to the Iraq war. In addition to functioning as the media logic of the Bush administration's doctrine of preemptive war, premediation helps to structure our post 9-11 media environment both in its social and in its technical formations. The talk will lay out two related concepts developed in the book's concluding chapter–the mediaphilia of anticipation and the anticipatory gesture–which help to characterize the modes of affectivity that have come to inform our interactions with our increasingly mobile social networks."De lezing begint 15:15 uur, locatie: UvA Oudemanhuispoort (OMHP) 4-6 1012 DL Amsterdam, kamer A008.
