Om Netværket

Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier er et nordisk forskningsnetværk støttet af Nordforsk 2004-2007. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgarde Studier vil styrke og koordinere mindre og spredte nationale forskningsmiljøer, bidrage til at fremme udveksling af viden om forskelle og ligheder mellem de nordiske lande og gøre nordisk avantgardeforskning internationalt synlig. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier afholder en årlig konference. Netværket danner også ramme for udarbejdelsen af De nordiske avantgarders kulturhistorie i 4 bind og et elektronisk arkiv for dokumenter fra de nordiske avantgarder. Det nordiske forskningsnetværk er en videreudvikling af det danske forskningsnetværk ”Avantgardernes genkomst og aktualitet” støttet af Det humanistiske Forskningsråd 2001-2004. Under forberedelse er et Europæisk Netværk for Avantgarde og Modernisme Studier, EAM, hvis første konference afholdes i Ghent, Belgien, maj 2008.

About the Network

The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies is supported by Nordforsk 2004-2007. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies aims to support and coordinate small and dispersed national centres of research, help promote the exchange of knowledge about differences and similarities among the avant-garde currents and research in the Nordic countries, and make Nordic avant-garde research visible in a European and international context. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies has a yearly conference. Within the Network an editorial group is preparing a four-volume Cultural History of the Nordic Avant-Gardes and an electronic archive of documents from the Nordic avant-gardes. The Nordic network is an extension of the Danish research network ”The Return and Actuality of the Avant-Gardes” supported by the Danish Research Council 2001-2004. A European Network of Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies, EAM, is under preparation and will have its first conference in Ghent in May 2008.

INVITATION TO THE FINAL CONFERENCE OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT "MEDIA AESTHETICS", OCT. 18-19, UNIVERSITY OF OSLO

THINKING MEDIA AESTHETICS: THE EMERGENCE OF A RESEARCH FIELD


The final conference of the interdisciplinary research project Media Aesthetics at the University of Oslo invite speakers and audience to participate in a questioning of the specific perspectives and operations characteristic of the emergent field of research named media aesthetics. Leading in different directions, the various works produced within the framework of our project offer no single mode or object of analysis. What is shared is, rather an attempt to place research on media objects and institutions beyond the framework of communication studies, while aesthetic objects, formats and operations are approached at their intersection with media and information machineries or with a view to their role within the politics of mediation. What is shared is, then, an experienced need to reorient aesthetic theory and research in accordance with the massive changes to human existence and social organization brought on by the omnipresence of information technologies that integrate previously separate media in global networks of production. This reorientation does not, however, simply concern contemporary culture: it opens onto new definitions of the nature of technology, art, human bodies and the sense-apparatus.

Our invited guest speakers – N. Katherine Hayles (UCLA), Trond Lundemo (University of Stockholm) , Bernard Stiegler (Centre Pompidou, Paris) and Samuel Weber (Northwestern University) – have all made important contributions towards such reorientation. The members of the research project; Liv Hausken (UiO), Arild Fetveit (Univeristy of Copenhagen), Eivind Røssaak (UiO), Susanne Sæther (UiO) and Ina Blom (UiO) will also present themes from their individual research projects under this general perspective

A conference fee of NOK 350,- covers lunch and coffe for both days.
