MEDIA ARCHAEOLOGY
RUPTURES AND RELATIONS
FRIDAY, 3 FEBRUARY 2017, 11.00 – 18.00
KARLSTAD UNIVERSITY, 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 (fi lm, media, literature, art, cultural studies) – and how it at
the same time can be used to connect varying research contexts.
