Summary

Doctoral dissertation “Electronic media and aesthetics in post-feminist theory” explores contemporary and dynamic themes of artistic use, aesthetic evaluation and phenomenological impact of widespread electronic media on human life in the post-feminist era.

The doctoral dissertation thesis is the result of an analytical study of artistic mass electronic media (photography, film, TV, video, computers, the Internet and multimedia). Modern electronic media are not only subject to more classical aesthetic criteria anymore, but also to the concept of “value” and, according to that, to what extent the gender undifferentiated affective existential arguments can successfully be imported into the new media. This, according to us, completely new aesthetics, was of interest to us from the point of view of affective encouragement of individualization and increased integrity through electronic media via digital processes of embodying existential theory for which we consider experimental film, video art and orchestrated multimedia performances during the “third wave of feminism” or post-feminism to be of great importance.

Research has been based on the phenomenology and philosophy of existentialism, which we found appropriate for integral insights into the Individual without gender differentiation, as we perceive the contemporary post-feminist theory.

International Interdisciplinary Symposium PHILOSOPHY OF MEDIA – Issues of founding, establishing and/or revelation,  will be held on the Croatian island Cres between 16-18 September, 2011. Media-via portal editor M.A. Vesna Srnic is invited to present her papers “Glocal Multimedia Art” at the symposium, organised in the year in which we celebrate the centenary of the  birth of Marshall McLuhan.

In front of Program comitee PhD. Divna Vuksanovic (Serbia) and PhD. Sead Alic (Croatia) stressed: “We live in a time of media intercession, networking, virtual worlds, a growing impact of mass media on politics, culture, human life, experience, or even opinions as such. We exist in a time when the immersion into the world of the mass media reminds us of the fact that we as human beings throughout history have been determined by some sort of media and that only the modern preoccupation with the (mass) media has given rise to an awareness of (partial or total) oblivion of media intercession,especially during times of oral communication, written and print form.” (…)   “In this sense, the philosophy of media co-opts the scientific research of linguistics, psycholinguistics, media theory, the theory of special art, knowledge of techniques and technologies, research psychology, medicine, phonetics, cultural and visual studies, and other science disciplines, theoretical knowledge and practice experience.” tENrNp4O_ZE

Symposium sponsors are  Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia, Croatian National Tourist Board, Town of Cres and Hotel Kimen Cres.
