Invitation

MEDIA IN ACTION

 

International Conference of the Research Center SFB/FK615 Media Upheavals

10-11 June 2010

Siegen, Germany

 

In order to describe the profound structural change from "New Media" to "More Media", media and technology studies are currently reconstituting their fields of research, employing a double focus: on the social and cultural practices acting on their media, and on the media acting on their practices. Research in cultural and social studies has performed a "praxeological turn" and is increasingly investigating medial or mediatized phenomena. The conference "Media in Action" focuses on research that permits us to trace the mediating steps between people, artifacts and signs.

Abstracts are available online: http://www.fk615.uni-siegen.de/dokumente/Media_in_Action.pdf.
Attendance is free and open to all staff, students and members of the public.
Venue: Artur-Woll-Haus, Am Eichenhang 50, D-57076 Siegen
