Contemporary culture is essentially mediated. It is this mediated condition that urges scholars to find appropriate frames and concepts to understand what ‘mediality’ means, and what it does. The ‘Mediality’ constellation represents a broad spectrum of research in the humanities focused on these issues. Its researchers and projects critical engage with ‘media’, whether as objects of analysis, resources, tools, or themes. The term ‘media’ here includes film, television and a wide variety of digital platforms, but also literature, music, artworks and other cultural carriers. While all work in this constellation is rooted in a humanities tradition, individual projects are very comfortable branching out to other fields when the objects, their dynamics or transformations, benefit from an interdisciplinary approach.
