- Coming soon
This innovative study of significant contemporary film and media works provides readers with a new orientation to the major debates concerning digital media's transformation of analog cinematic culture. Crogan situates this orientation with a substantial critical introduction to the work of French philosopher of technology and cultural activist, Bernard Stiegler. Stiegler's publically engaged analysis and experimentation in this area is based on an original account of the cinematic media that formed the backbone of the audiovisual culture of modernity. Here Crogan explains and develops the implications of Stiegler's philosophical re-reading of film. He analyzes how we are not only informed, entertained, or stay in touch through digital media, but in a fundamental way are composed by our media and communication interactions, arguing that we need to "compose ourselves" anew amidst an emerging technoculture that militates against that very possibility.
