Reframing Media: Objects, Sites, Histories

Related to our recent CFP, we are doing a small symposium at FAMU before ICA in Prague in May.

Reframing Media: Objects, Sites, Histories

May 21, 2018 2PM-530PM
FAMU in Prague
Smetanovo nábřeží 2, room U1
RSVP: http://bit.ly/reframingmedia

Media studies has opened up new avenues of research across fields, helping to reframe the objects, sites, and histories of scholarly inquiry, providing a way to challenge accepted historical layers of social and technical arrangements. This symposium draws together critical intersections with media, applying postcolonial and feminist theories to contextualize and frame the mediated landscape, both past and present. Drawing from a variety of entangled theories and methodologies, authors engage with a variety of approaches, providing new insights for scholars from an array of backgrounds. This symposium also engages media itself through a media archaeological approach, reframing and interrogating our media so as to shed new understanding to our hyper-mediated world.

Please join us for an engaging symposium.
