Title: Responding to Digital Media: Revisiting, Renewing, and Inventing Media Theories
Precis: The saturating culture of social-digital media challenges us to revisit and renew theoretical frameworks that require expansion or elaboration to illuminate the new complexities, relationships, and possibilities of new sites of production and means of human interaction.
We intend to foster a discussion of the ways in which central questions of communication and media studies are or may be re-presented. We hope to address two of these central areas of inquiry: the role and status of the Body and the inter-animation of orality and literacy.
Social media may be seen to offer individuals the opportunity to transcend or escape the corporeal and its fixed position in time and place. This kind of disembodiment has been argued to sponsor resistance to constraint and oppression. Further, social media present the opportunity to invent a digital corporeality through visual and linguistic codes and thereby to make new relationships and new rules of social interaction. As we investigate how the construct of “Self” changes and is changed by new mediations, we can also question how other constructs respond to the changed landscape of positionality. In particular, current events challenge the national body.
Digital media blur other distinctions as well. We suggest that the tensive relationship of orality & literacy is enlivened by the current context of media and media studies. As scholars revisit the rhetorical status of visual communication and witness the invention of 21st century tropes (e.g. memes, gifs, bitmoji), the semiotic differentiation is unsettled.
We also hope to engage students in a discussion currently occupying US scholars responding to consequences of new media. Specifically, “fake news.”
