Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Our spring semester’s colloquium is concerned with the various positionings of the “Self” in and through audio-visual media and the role of everyday life for giving shape to these expressions. The range of self-positionings is large: Shifting from private to entrepreneurial self, from auto-biographical to the robotic self, from shared to exclusive selves and more. We consider these expressions of the Self as historically, socially and culturally diverse and specific as are the audio-visual media they emerge from. Also, they entail different understandings of everyday life. How does the formation of certain “senses of selves” emerge in the realm of everyday life and what are their modes of communication? How do they correspond to the audio-visual agency of filmmaking, visual arts or social media? The delicate articulations of subjectivities, identities, otherness and empirically embodied experience will be presented and discussed in the light of conceptual and empirical perspectives from European Ethnology, Visual Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Film and Media Studies, History, Philosophy, Sociology and History of Art.
