History of Cultural Studies and its Methods II (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Armin Beverungen

wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 11.04.2024 - 04.07.2024 | C 14.027 Seminarraum

Inhalt: Organized as a lecture series, this course focuses on central themes and thinkers in the globalized sphere of cultural theorizing within the humanities and social sciences. The concerns, debates and methodologies of international cultural theorizing in part also draw upon different traditions and geographies of thought, or take the form of ›mobile theories‹ and ›travelling concepts‹ translated into different contexts, and change as they travel. The lecture series is, as suggested by the cultural theorizing explored, based on an understanding of culture as plural, as cultures that are continouously produced through, and made manifest in, embodied practices, discourses, spaces, emotional registers, technologies and organizational forms. In a globalized world, these cultural constellations are also geographically and linguistically plural, shaped by both global proceses and local conditions. They are thus contested and to some degree contingent. The terms and methods of cultural theorizing, its history and present, are invariably part of this ›cultural production and contestation‹. We hope that the lectures and discussions will therefore allow us to defamiliarize and enrich our ways of seeing and understanding, to make sense (differently) about how invariably globalized cultures take place.

Inhalt: The class brings together students from the MA "Media and Digital Cultures" and the MA "Culture and Organization" and is focused on the organizational powers of media technologies. ‘Media organize’, as the architectural theorist Reinhold Martin put it, and this is particularly true for digital media, according to the media theorist John Durham Peters. The class thus focuses on the way media organize, i.e. on their organizational capacities, on the kinds of organizational forms and processes associated with particular media technologies, as well as on the way these media technologies themselves are organized. The course is broadly split into three parts: in a first part the class explores histories of media technologies of organization; in a second part the class explores current instantiations of media technologies of organization; and in a third part students embark on a group exercise in which they research particular media technologies and their associated organizational forms and processes. The last part of the class culminates in a student conference in which students in groups present their findings.
