BeschreibungMetamorphoses of (New) Media: On Aesthetics, Art and Artificial Reproduction

The medial materialities of inventions such as the Web 2.0, cinema or the printing press, do always affect fundamental aesthetic categories (and vice versa): they are a matter of meaning and thus challenge questions of authorship, the notion of the sign and text and problems of reception. They also mediate changing cultural conditions: they signify and catalyze complex processes of (inter)cultural communication and transformation. Medial metamorphoses thus function as indicators of both aesthetic and cultural transition.
Walter Benjamin discussed the aesthetic and cultural implications of mechanical reproducibility as a characteristic of mass media. At a time, however, when digital mass media leave their traces in areas from our daily communicational realities to literary or otherwise multimedia realities it is worth to (re)focus on such transitional processes and their effects. They did for instance affect and redefine the relation between author and recipient: whereas the physical presence of analogue media such as books is “monologic” the virtual presence of digital worlds is “polylogic”. The former involves a monodirectional communication from one author to several readers, the latter provides a space where everybody can be an author.
This panel therefore seeks to explore such metamorphoses of the (new) media and semiotics concerning its aesthetical and associated implications:
(1) The notion of the Sign: How do (new) media relate to different sign systems and languages, technological phenomena like digitality and virtuality, or categories like orality and literacy?
(2) Communication: How do they create new qualities of communication in an interplay of orality, literacy and other sign systems (images, music…); how do they influence writing and reading strategies and requirements of media competences?
(3) Aesthetics and Literature: How do Literature and the new media affect each other and in how far is the notion of literature (authorship, text, readership etc.) subject to a redefinition – how does a new form of communication generate new forms of literature, genres and the like?
We invite paper proposals that address one or more of the three topics mentioned above. Please send abstracts of 300 words and a short biographical statement to Julia Genz and Ulrike Küchler by 31 March 2012 (,

The panel is part of the First International Conference: “Transitions in Comparative Literature“, Comparative Literature Association of Ireland (CLAI), University of Cork, 28-30 June 2012
