Friedrich Kittler's Resonance

Grammophon, Film, Typewriter announces the withdrawal of technology from human signification and into a computerized system of digits where Absolute Knowledge runs as "endless loop." Prior to such closure, however, Friedrich Kittler tracked differentiated media systems and celebrated the signal. His work inspired both academic investigations into the history of media and endeavors to expand scholarly form through film, sound, and performance. Although his latest writing reaches back to the Greeks and sweeps in such disparate fields of inquiry as the joint histories of music and mathematics, his entire career is marked by a breadth and development that resists formulaic appropriation. This panel seeks papers that engage and interrogate the resonance, echoes, and reverberations of Kittler’s work in its wide historical scope and thematic multiplicity following his death in the fall of 2011.

Topics might include but are certainly not limited to:

- The matter of the immaterial: scientific models and human freedom
- The future of post-humanistic theory and the popular (pop music, pop culture)
-Discourse networks in the Age of Goethe and later 19th century (Goethe, Schiller, Hebbel, Meyer, Hoffmann)
- The (technically) perpetual age of romanticism
- 20th and 21st century media theory (in relation to McLuhan and Luhmann, for example)
- Technology and the history of war
- Philosophy of and as media (from Hegel and Heidegger)
