The Research Group "Media and Mediation" develops its activities along the lines of discursive and audiovisual media practices, such as writing and textuality, Television, Cinema and Documentary Studies, and Social Media.
In the scope of Television, Cinema and Documentary Studies, we seek to continue the previously initiated studies concerning the effects of the migration from the analogic paradigm to the digital networks. We seek to broaden the research on media ontology and media mutation, namely in the fields of image and sound experience, with particular attention to the contemporary forms of cinema and to contemporary sound landscapes and digital networks.
This group will also develop research in the areas of reception, such as audience studies, visual culture and critical thinking. A particular emphasis will continue to be given to the mediation of knowledge, comprising:
- The public communication of science and technology and the crossings between science (including medicine);
- The political construction of visibility and invisibility strategies and apparatuses;
- The production of digital assets concerning these fields of study.
