Doctoral Specialist Course: "Text, Image, Sound: Intermedial Crossings in Twentieth-Century Mass Media"

Thomas, J. (Participant)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar


This intensive course is divided into four parts. Each part elaborates on intermedial relationships between text, image, and sound in literature and mass media, such as periodicals, radio, and film, which are discussed from a variety of methodological and sociohistorical perspectives. The intensive course aims (1) to stimulate reflection on assessing mass media from a broader cultural (sociohistorical, religious, …) perspective; (2) to help doctoral students understand and apply various methodological approaches and terminologies of intermediality; and (3) to tackle aesthetic functions of the relationship between text, image, and sound in twentieth-century media. It is preceded by a keynote lecture focussing on literature and media innovation in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
