LANGUAGE MATERIALISM

Codex and Code. Aesthetics, Language, and Politics in an Age of Digital Media, Norlit Conference, Stockholm, August 6–9, 2009

The aim of this session is to disentangle both the actual uses and the potential meanings of the concept of "language materialism", tracing its genealogy to the materiality of the linguistic sign (sound, visual constellation, typography, etcetera), but also to the media-technological materiality of literary practice and the social materiality of language.
