SFB-Forschungsforum – Axel Volmar: Finding stories for the history of visual communications. Online talk and discussion of work-in-progress

17 June 2020, 17:00-18:00
Videochats and video conferencing tools have recently faced, not least due to corona-inflicted measures of social distancing, a massive boom in both personal and professional life. Videochats seem to enable ad-hoc remote-work and distance-teaching solutions as well as online leisure activities from yoga courses, choir practice, and drinks with friends. However, visual communications technologies, as the tools are more generally referred to, as well as the stories of their historical development, form a strangely understudied topic in media studies. Committed to closing this gap, Axel will present an outline for a monograph on the history of videotelephony and its impact for the formation of remote publics and video-supported forms of cooperation. Taking Thomas Haigh’s working paper, „Finding a Story for the History of Computing“ (CRC Working Paper Series, No. 3, July 2018) as a model, the outline will serve as a basis for exploring and discussing possible angles or “stories” that could make the history of visual communications and cooperation an interesting read, theoretically relevant and instructive for understanding our present situation.

Blicklabor 1 – Online Diskussion – ‚Identifizieren‘ im (Sprach)spiel der Praxis: Unterscheidungen, Bündelungen, Verwandtschaften an Beispielen aus SFB-Teilprojekten
Read more
28 May 2020, 14:00-18:00

Aufgrund der Einschränkungen wegen der COVID-19 Pandemie findet das Blicklabor in Form einer Online-Diskussion Donnerstag, 28. Mai, von 17 bis 18 Uhr statt. Die Materialien (audiovisuelle und schriftliche) um die es gehen wird, stehen am Vortag online bereit.

Das Teilprojekt B05 Frühe Kindheit und Smartphone führt in der zweiten Förderphase des SFB Medien der Kooperation eine Serie von Blicklaboratorien in gestaffelten Öffentlichkeiten durch. Unter „Blicklabor“ verstehen wir ein kooperatives Format: Gemeinsames Sichten, Besprechen und Schreiben, Ordnungsversuche am Material und der Wechsel von Perspektiven und Medien machen das Blicklabor zu einem Ort experimenteller Datenpraktiken, die im Forschungsprozess selbst situiert und entsprechend fragil sind.

Blicklabor 1 startet als SFB-interne Forschungskooperation zu situierten Medienpraktiken des ‚Identifizierens‘ und wirft die Frage auf: Wie ist Identifizieren wann und wo was? So stehen z.B. Medienpraktiken des Identifizierens in der frühen Kindheit in Zusammenhängen von zeigen, teilen und erinnern und dem von Reckwitz (2017) prognostizierten „digitalen Subjekt“. Was passiert, wenn wir nach Praktiken des Identifizierens in ganz unterschiedlichen Feldern und Kontexten (vgl. „Sprachspiele“ nach Wittgenstein) fragen?

Willkommen sind Beobachtungsperspektiven und Materialien zum Identifizieren aus den SFB-Teilprojekten, um die Analyse von (Medien) Praktiken in unseren jeweiligen Forschungsfeldern aneinander zu schärfen. Wir laden interessierte Forscher*innen herzlich zur Teilnahme daran ein.

 

Verantwortlich: Bina E. Mohn und Jutta Wiesemann

Anmeldung und Absprache zu Beispielen/Materialien bitte bis 26.05.2020 an: bina.mohn@uni-siegen.de

Media Practice Theory – Online Discussion – Florian Sprenger (Ruhr-Universität Bochum): „Virtual Environments - Locating Autonomous Cars“

27 May 2020, 17:00-18:00

Due to the restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lecture will be held asynchronous online from Tuesday 26th May, 5.00 pm (CET). We will meet with Florian Sprenger for an online-discussion Wednesday 27th April, 5.00 pm (CET).

Lecture by Florian Sprenger: "Virtual Environments - Locating Autonomous Cars"

Using the example of autonomous vehicles, I would like to show that their autonomous behavior cannot be explained by the algorithmic transformation of inputs into outputs, but requires a concept that focuses on their temporality and mediality in order to explain their adaptability to an unpredictable environment. By virtualizing their surroundings, they localize themselves. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze more precisely how these environments are produced by technical methods of combining sensor data and filter algorithms. These methods produce the possibilities of alternatives, which underlie micro-decisions—in opposition to algorithms that are invariably determined.
