DOING THINGS WITH MEDIA
What practices, and families of practices, are emerging in and around what we do with and in relation to media? As the object ‘media’ changes, so too are the forms of life that involve media. But to grasp what we are doing means taking a distance from the hype about ‘new media’ and asking broader questions about the new and continuing action-possibilities associated with today’s mediated interfaces. In this lecture, Nick Couldry will draw on his forthcoming book Media Society World and build on his earlier work, particularly the 2004 article ‘Theorising Media as Practice’. Among the families of practice discussed (simple and complex) will be ‘searching’, ‘showing’, ‘presencing’, ‘archiving’, ‘commentary’, ‘keeping all channels open’ and ‘screening out’.
