Film- und Mediengeschichte im Zeitalter der digitalen Reproduzierbarkeit

Franziska Heller

Nie schien der Zugriff auf Filmgeschichte leichter als heute: Mit wenigen Klicks kann man etwa ‚Klassiker‘ anschauen, sie kopieren und teilen – noch dazu digital remastered, ‚schöner als je zuvor‘!
In der jüngeren Medienkultur werden ehemals analoge Filme digitalisiert, durchlaufen ständige Transformationen, um in neuen Medienumgebungen sichtbar zu bleiben. Die Studie widmet sich den grundsätzlichen Fragen, in welcher Form die vermeintlich allgegenwärtig verfügbaren Bewegt-Bilder aus der Filmgeschichte überhaupt in die Zirkulation der digitalen Kultur gelangen und welche ästhetischen, theoretischen, sozio-kulturellen wie historiographischen Konsequenzen sich daraus ergeben.

Spaces of Longing and Belonging

Territoriality, Ideology and Creative Identity in Literature and Film

Series:

Edited by Brigitte le Juez and Bill Richardson

Spaces of Longing and Belonging offers the reader theoretical and interpretative studies of spatiality centered on a variety of literary and cultural contexts. It brings new and complementary insights to bear on creative uses of spatiality in artistic texts and generally into the field of spatiality as a cultural phenomenon, especially, although not exclusively, in terms of literary space. Ranging over questions of aesthetics, politics, sociohistorical concerns, issues of postcoloniality, transculturality, ecology and features of interpersonal spaces, among others, the essays provide a considerable collection of innovative pieces of scholarship on important questions relating to literary spatiality generally, as well as detailed analyses of particular works and authors. The volume includes ground-breaking theoretical investigations of crucial dimensions of spatiality in a context of increased global awareness.

Studies in World Cinema

A Critical Journal

Savaş Arslan

Studies in World Cinema: A Critical Journal offers a platform to examine, rethink and reinvent the notion of “world cinema”. What do we understand by “world cinema”, and how useful or enabling is this term? Taking the world as a space of signification in which we continually reproduce its meanings, this journal opens up inquiries about films and cinematic practices that engender novel senses of the world.
The journal welcomes research on traveling cinematic tropes, transnational practices, remakes and adaptations, translation cultures, migrant and diasporic films and film cultures, postcolonial and accented cinemas, collaborations and exchanges among filmmakers, co-productions and multinational filmmaking practices and networks, and early cinematic practices. Together we aim to develop a fruitful and more enriching understanding of our world cinema.
