Conference: Imagine Media! Media Borders and Intermediality

On April 2, 2007 by Christy

I missed the CFP for this conference but for those interested here is some info:

Nordic Society for Interarts Studies is pleased to announce its eighth conference, to be held at Vaxjo University, Sweden, 25-28 October 2007.

What is intermediality? To answer this question, one must first ask: What is a medium, and where do we find the gaps that intermediality bridges? In a similar way, the questions What is interartiality? and What is multimodality? require that the supposedly crossed borders be described before one can proceed to the “inter” and “multi.” And how are the notions intermediality, interartiality and multimodality actually related? Are they simply varying words, used by scholars from different disciplines, but basically denoting the same phenomenon? Or are there substantial differences that justify different labels for dissimilar conceptions?
