    Between documentation and creation - intermediary approaches to images

    Le document est défini comme une information portée sur un support. Sous forme de mots, de sons, d’images, l’information doit être structurée et intelligible. C’est de cette définition juridique des technologies de l’information (art. 3 de la LCCJTI de 2001), que nous souhaitons partir afin d’interroger les gestes qui sont posés sur les documents visuels aussi bien dans le temps de leur conservation que de leurs usages créatifs. C’est donc moins le documentaire (au sens d’un genre photographique et cinématographique) que nous aborderons, que l’action de travailler aujourd’hui avec des documents.

    Audiovisuals and internet archives: Histories of healthy bodies in the 21st century

    The Audiovisuals and internet archives: Histories of healthy bodies in the 21st century spring school invites young researchers to engage in four days of intensive discussion and hands-on activities on the relation between the history of the healthy body, body politics, and the Internet at the turn of the twenty-first century (roughly 1990s-2010). The spring school will take a transnational perspective and focus on developments in Germany, France and Great Britain. In building the historical foundation of the Internet era in the BodyCapital perspective, we will encounter new modes of representations and practices of the body that the Internet favored: webcam uses, first artist creations, reuse of traditional contents (photographs and films), amongst others.

    Scaling. What happens when we scale things up or down?

    Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies 2018

    The 2018 session will be devoted to the investigation of scale and scaling as operative concepts for the analysis of media. What happens when we scale? Does anything really change? Can scaling ever impact the inner blueprint of an object? Are there laws of scaling? Or does scaling resist any attempt at calculability, such that, to investigate it, we can only ever look at individual events of scaling? As a media practice, scaling is widely used. But, in contrast to the ubiquity of operations, scaling is hardly ever viewed on its own terms as a basic concept of media analysis. The Princeton-Weimar Summer School for Media Studies 2018 will attempt to map out approaches to scaling as a basic media-analytical tool.

    L'Ecole d'été « Communicating politics. Media, Communication, Activism from the French Revolution to the present » se tiendra à Padoue, en Italie, du 19 au 24 septembre 2016. Le programme sera consacré à l'étude, dans une perspective historique, des liens entre les médias et la politique, de la Révolution française à nos jours et dans différentes aires et régions géographiques. L'enjeu de l'école d'été est de s'interroger sur la manière dont l'étude de ces liens permet d'enrichir nos connaissances en histoire des médias et en histoire politique.
