Patrik and Marie are chairing a spotlightsession on entangled media histories at the ACSIS-conference 2015 in Norrköping Sweden. The conference theme for this year is “In the Flow: People, Media, Materialities”.
From the abstract: “In recent years, it is valid to talk about a transnational turn in media historiography. Traditional histories with a national focus are still dominant within the field, but they have been complemented by scholarship focussing on the transnational or transborder flows and circulation, interconnectivities and interdependencies between countries, regions and cultures. But what are the theoretical and methodological challenges of doing transnational media history? This spotlight session takes this question as its point of departure and draws upon the experiences made within the scholarly network “Entangled media histories” (EMHIS), which is a collaboration between the unit for media history at Lund University, The Centre for Media History at Bournemouth University, and the Hans-Bredow-Institut für Medienforschung in Hamburg.”
