Course Content

By way of a historiographical overview, and under the umbrella concept
of "intermediality", the course Reading Concepts of Intermediality will
engage with such phenomena as transmediality, crossmediality,
remediation, and other media crossovers. This will allow us to

arts and media research, which students will learn to apply in their
individual research practice.
