Media history from the margins

The summer seminar aims to rethink media history from the margins and to place at the center of our attention neglected, alternative, or censured media texts, uses, and technologies. By shifting the discussion from hegemonic actors, dominant institutions, and successful mass media to the fringes of media history, it pursues the double objective of rewriting media history into media histories, and of opening a space to rethink historiographical practices and methods.

Journalism, media and surveillance

The Internet and social media create new opportunities for surveillance. Governments, military organisations, intelligence agencies, corporations, market researchers, and advertisers have the capacity to erase privacy and reshape the conditions of human autonomy. Mass media representations can, potentially, legitimise or delegitimise contemporary surveillance practices. These developments threaten journalistic practice just as they create new opportunities for counter-surveilling institutions of power. How then, should we understand the interrelationships which conjoin journalism, media and surveillance? Conference participants will, we hope, respond to this general question.
