Cursusdoelen
The course aims to develop interdisciplinary methodological approaches to illuminate the role of mediality in the formation of cultural and aesthetic meaning. Within this framework, students will explore the interplay between analogue and digital materialities in a range of cultural manifestations, including works of literature, film, exhibitions and and philosophy.
Inhoud
Concepts such as materiality, mediality and intermediality are widely circulated, and the critical energy which propels them can be attributed to an increasing consciousness of the degree to which modern culture has been embedded in a range of different technologies; and specifically in the form of those media through which the category of the human has materialised over the last century or so.
 
This course aims to provide a basic knowledge of the fundamental connections between literature and the technologies that have framed and disseminated it, from the Enlightenment onwards. Examining a variety of media, ancient and modern, in relation to textuality, the module explores those moments of transition when technologies were not yet defined in relation to institutions of literature.
 
Travelling beyond the mere history of cultural and technological innovations, the course considers how the devices and desires of communication can frame a collective idea of public and private; examines the proposition that human interaction and identity formation thus cannot be thought independently of surrounding media and technology; and suggests how such conceptions inform our understanding of the materialisations of the 'Real'.
