In this pathfinding study, Claudia Springer explores the techno-erotic imagery in recent films, cyberpunk fiction, comic books, television, software, and writing on virtual reality and artificial intelligence to reveal how these futuristic images actually encode current debates concerning gender roles and sexuality." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index ISBN: 0292776977 Donation: M.S.

AUSTRALIA; TECHNOLOGY AND TV Summary: "This research report deals with some issues which are vital to the development of our communications system. Networks have been buit to deliver broadband services, and more will be built before the year 2000. The financing and growth of the networks depend on business and domestic consumers, who will use the networks to access information and entertainment or to communicate with others. The underlying question is how conveniently a user can access the on-line world from any device, be it a TV receiver, a computer or a new multimedia device; and at what price." -from the preface.

Returning to Jean-Jacques Rousseau s foundational, Enlightenment-era melodrama Pygmalion with its revival of an old story about sculpted objects that spring to life, it contends that this early production prefigures the structure of contemporary melodramas and serves as a model for the way we interact with media today. Melodrama is conceptualized as a plastic form with the capacity to mould and be moulded and that speaks to fundamental processes of mediation Notes: Includes bibliographical references (pages 171-188), filmography (pages 188-189), and index ISBN: 9781783480470 Contents: Introduction -- Mad Men: melodrama and metamorphosis -- Turned back: advertising, televisual melodrama and metamorphosis in Mad Men -- Earth-object: melodrama and plasticity in Lars Von Trier's Melancholia -- Melodrama and plasticity in Todd Haynes's Mildred Pierce -- Postlude: Animated statue, melody, encore (moi!)

The Oxford handbook of new audiovisual aesthetics / edited by John Richardson, Claudia Gorbman, Carol Vernallis
New York: Oxford University Press, c2013.
Call No: 220 OXF Author: Richardson, John; Gorbman, Claudia; Vernallis, Carol Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Oxford University Press PubDate: c2013 PhysDes: Oxford University Press Subject: TECHNOLOGY AND THE CINEMA; TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS; TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENTS; TECHNOLOGY AND TV; INTERNET; INTERNET AND THE CINEMA; INTERNET AND TV; YOUTUBE; AESTHETICS; ANIMATION; MULTIMEDIA; SOUND REPRODUCTION; MEDIA; SOUND Summary: This book offers new ways to read the audiovisual. In the media landscapes of today, conglomerates jockey for primacy and the internet increasingly places media in the hands of individuals - producing the range of phenomena from movie blockbuster to YouTube aesthetics. Media forms and genres are proliferating and interpenetrating, from movies, music and other entertainments streaming on computers and iPods to video games and wireless phones. The audiovisual environment of everyday life, too - from street to stadium to classroom - would at times be hardly recognizable to the mid-twentieth-century subject. This book provides a definitive cross-section of current ways of thinking about sound and image. Its authors - leading scholars and promising younger ones, audiovisual practitioners and non-academic writers (both mainstream and independent) - open the discussion on audiovisual aesthetics in new directions. Our contributors come from fields including film, visual arts, new media, cultural theory, and sound and music studies, and they draw variously from economic, political, institutional, psychoanalytic, genre-based, auteurist, internationalist, reception-focused, technological, and cultural approaches to questions concerning today's sound and image.

Call No: 233.933 BEN Author: Benson-Allott, Caetlin Anne Source: US Place: New York Publisher: New York Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Inc., in association with Loyola University New Orleans, The Atlantic, Georgia Tech Center for Media Studies PubDate: 2015 PhysDes: xx, 157 pages : illustrations ; 17 cm Series: Object lessons Subject: REMOTE CONTROL; VIEWERS; TECHNOLOGY AND TV; TELEVISION Summary: "While we all use remote controls, we understand little about their history or their impact on our daily lives. By emphasizing volume control, channel shifting, and multi-function management, they tell a story about our experience of mass media, culture, and domestic life. Remote controls reveal the deep impact electronics design has on our self-perception and world-view. This book offers lively analyses of the remote control's material, literary, and cultural history to explain how such an innocuous media accessory can change the way we occupy our houses, interact with our families, and experience the world. From the first wired radio remotes of the 1920s to infrared universal remotes, from the homemade TV controllers to the Apple Remote, remote controls shape our media devices and how we live with them"-- Notes: Formerly CIP.
