Workshop on Time and Media.

Last week, on May 5–6, at Åkeshovs slot, Stockholm, the research network Times of Mediatization, financed by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, organized the first in a three-part workshop devoted to questions of media and temporality. The workshop raised many intriguing and complex questions on the phenomenological experience of time, on how different temporalities are gathered and processed in different media, how media technologies such as the book, television, and sound recording, modulate and manipulate temporality, and how the computer perhaps manifest its own machinic time – a time of lags, delays, and loops taking place on a micro-temporal level. The work of the group that gathered will continue during the coming years and will be very interesting to follow.
