Communications, philosophy, film and video, digital culture: media studies straddles an astounding array of fields and disciplines and produces a vocabulary that is in equal parts rigorous and intuitive. Critical Terms for Media Studies defines, and at times, redefines, what this new and hybrid area aims to do, illuminating the key concepts behind its liveliest debates and most dynamic topics. Part of a larger conversation that engages culture, technology, and politics, this exciting collection of essays explores our most critical language for dealing with the qualities and modes of contemporary media. Edited by two outstanding scholars in the field, W. J. T. Mitchell and Mark B. N. Hansen, the volume features works by a team of distinguished contributors. These essays, commissioned expressly for this volume, are organized into three interrelated groups: “Aesthetics” engages with terms that describe sensory experiences and judgments, “Technology” offers entry into a broad array of technological concepts, and “Society” opens up language describing the systems that allow a medium to function. A compelling reference work for the twenty-first century and the media that form our experience within it, Critical Terms for Media Studies will engage and deepen any reader’s knowledge of one of our most important new fields.

Die Propagandaformel vom »Krieg gegen den Terror« ist seit geraumer Zeit nicht mehr in aller Munde, wirkt jedoch untergründig fort. Aber haben wir überhaupt jemals richtig begriffen, was damit gemeint ist, und vor allem, wie subtil und mit welchen Mitteln dieser Krieg geführt wurde und wird? In seinem neuen Buch erkundet der renommierte Bildtheoretiker W. J. T. Mitchell die Sprach- und Bildpolitiken im Jahrzehnt nach 9/11 und stößt auf eine so heikle wie mächtige Konstellation aus Metaphern und Bildern, die ihre eigene furchteinflößende Realität erschafft und enorme gesellschaftliche und politische Auswirkungen hat. Letztere werden noch verstärkt durch einen anderen Begriff, der praktisch zeitgleich die Bühne des öffentlichen Diskurses betrat: das Klonen. Das Klonen und der Terror, so eine zentrale These Mitchells, weisen beunruhigende strukturelle Ähnlichkeiten auf und verschmelzen zu einem Dispositiv aus Realem und Imaginärem, Fakten und Metaphern, Überzeugungen und religiösem Glauben – zu einer gefährlichen Allianz aus Biotechnologie, Biopolitik und realer Politik, die sich in Bildern reproduziert und ins kollektive Gedächtnis eingräbt. Mitchells Buch ist ein Meisterwerk politischer Ästhetik und zugleich eine düstere Bilanz der Bush-Ära: »Der Kapuzenmann von Abu Ghraib, des Terrors verdächtig, Opfer der Folter, ein anonymer Klon, gesichtsloser Menschensohn, wird auf absehbare Zeit die Ikone unserer Zeit bleiben.«

Unsere Operations-, Wissens- und Existenzräume, unsere Selbst- und Weltwahrnehmung werden heute unhintergehbar von technologischen Objektkulturen geprägt. Insbesondere die allgemeine Kybernetisierung seit Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts, die in der umfassenden und allgegenwärtigen Computerisierung ihren vorläufigen Höhepunkt erreicht hat, macht die Technizität unserer sinnkulturellen Verfassung deutlich. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes, den die deutsche Erstübertragung eines brisanten Stücks aus dem Nachlaß des französischen Mechanologen Gilbert Simondon eröffnet, liefern die dringend nötige Neubeschreibung unserer zeitgenössisch-technischen Welt. Außerdem schreiben: Dirk Baecker, Massimo de Carolis, Alexander Galloway, Mark Hansen, Katherine Hayles, Nicole Karafyllis, Scott Lash, Jean-Luc Nancy, Frédéric Neyrat, Peter Risthaus, Bernard Stiegler und Eugene Thacker.

The Essential vocabulary of Media Studies Keywords for Media Studies introduces and aims to advance the field of critical media studies by tracing, defining, and problematizing its established and emergent terminology. The book historicizes thinking about media and society, whether that means noting a long history of “new media,” or tracing how understandings of media “power” vary across time periods and knowledge formations. Bringing together an impressive group of established scholars from television studies, film studies, sound studies, games studies, and more, each of the 65 essays in the volume focuses on a critical concept, from “fan” to “industry,” and “celebrity” to “surveillance.” Keywords for Media Studies is an essential tool that introduces key terms, research traditions, debates, and their histories, and offers a sense of the new frontiers and questions emerging in the field of media studies.

Providing an overview of Japanese media theory from the 1910s to the present, this volume introduces English-language readers to Japan's rich body of theoretical and conceptual work on media for the first time. The essays address a wide range of topics, including the work of foundational Japanese thinkers; Japanese theories of mediation and the philosophy of media; the connections between early Japanese television and consumer culture; and architecture's intersection with communications theory. Tracing the theoretical frameworks and paradigms that stem from Japan's media ecology, the contributors decenter Eurocentric media theory and demonstrate the value of the Japanese context to reassessing the parameters and definition of media theory itself. Taken together, these interdisciplinary essays expand media theory to encompass philosophy, feminist critique, literary theory, marketing discourse, and art; provide a counterbalance to the persisting universalist impulse of media studies; and emphasize the need to consider media theory situationally. Contributors.

Even as media in myriad forms increasingly saturate our lives, we nonetheless tend to describe our relationship to it in terms from the twentieth century: we are consumers of media, choosing to engage with it. In Feed-Forward, Mark B. N. Hansen shows just how outmoded that way of thinking is: media is no longer separate from us but has become an inescapable part of our very experience of the world. Drawing on the speculative empiricism of philosopher Alfred North Whitehead, Hansen reveals how new media call into play elements of sensibility that greatly affect human selfhood without in any way belonging to the human. From social media to data-mining to new sensor technologies, media in the twenty-first century work largely outside the realm of perceptual consciousness, yet at the same time inflect our every sensation. Understanding that paradox, Hansen shows, offers us a chance to put forward a radically new vision of human becoming, one that enables us to reground the human in a non-anthropocentric view of the world and our experience in it.
