The zoopraxiscope – a couple waltzing (No. 35., title from item.)
ECREA Communication History Section is launching a call for chapters for a new book project tentatively entitled Historicizing media and communication concepts of the digital age. The book aims to historicize some of the most relevant ideas and concepts in contemporary digital media studies, and will appear in the series “Studies in digital history and hermeneutics” directed by Andreas Fickers (DeGruyter Editor). The volume will be both online with free access and printed thanks to the support of C2DH at the University of Luxembourg, and will be edited by Gabriele Balbi, Nelson Ribeiro, Valérie Schafer and Christian Schwarzenegger – the former and current management team.
The main goal of the book is to show how several concepts did not originate with digital technologies, but existed before the digital age and have been used for long time, also in the “analogue times”. This should help to understand how concepts have changed over time and to see both continuities and profound mutations in their meanings between past and present, between the analog and digital eras. We have selected more than 20 concepts and part of them will be assigned thanks to this Call for Chapters.
