Re Medium

Genre: Social Science

Einer verbreiteten medienphilosophischen These zufolge verschwindet das Medium im reibungslosen Vollzug seiner Mittlerfunktion; der 'Bote' tritt hinter die Botschaft zurück. Im Kontrast zu dieser These stellt der vorliegende Band das scheinbar Transparente, Ephemere, Verschwindende in den Mittelpunkt. In den Fokus der Aufmerksamkeit rücken jene historischen und systematischen Momente, in denen das Medium sichtbar wird: im Medienwechsel, in der Dysfunktion, in der Diskursivierung. Im Spannungsfeld von Transparenz und Opazität entfalten sich die hier versammelten Analysen der Performanz des Mediums. Die Autorinnen und Autoren untersuchen rezente Facetten von Medialität und Mediatisierung aus philosophischer, soziologischer und kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive. Sie leisten damit einen Beitrag zu zeitgenössischen Debatten der Medienwissenschaft.

Release Date: 2015-07-27
Genre: Literary Criticism

Superheroes are enjoying a cultural resurgence, dominating the box office and breaking out of specialty comics stores onto the shelves of mainstream retailers. A leading figure behind the superhero Renaissance is Grant Morrison, long-time architect of the DC Comics' universe and author of many of the most successful comic books in recent years. Renowned for his anarchic original creations--Zenith, The Invisibles, The Filth, We3--as well as for his acclaimed serialized comics--JLA, Superman, Batman, New X-Men--Grant Morrison has radically redefined the superhero archetype. Known for his eccentric lifestyle and as a practitioner of "pop magic," Morrison sees the superhero as not merely fantasy but a medium for imagining a better humanity. Drawing on a variety of analytical approaches, this first-ever collection of critical essays on his work explores his rejuvenation of the figure of the superhero as a means to address the challenges of modern life.
