Description

Conference Sensibiltiy and the Senses, Media, Bodies, Practices * 29.06.2017 - 01.07.2017 * NECS European Network for Cinema and Media Studies und Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3

The question of the relationship between media, bodies, and the senses cuts across the entire history of media theories. Since their first appearance, technical media and a wide variety of cultural techniques have been analyzed taking into consideration their relationships with the human body and its sensory organs. Concepts such as “organ projection,” “prosthesis,” “innervation,” “extension,” and “interface” have been used to describe the contact and the interaction between human organisms and technical apparatuses with their various degrees of hybridization, which in turn have generated a whole series of utopian and dystopian visions of a future “post-human” condition.
