This rich study provides a comprehensive introduction to media philosophy while offering a new perspective on the concept and function of transmission media in all systems of exchange. Krämer uses the figure of the messenger as a key metaphor, examining a diverse range of transmission events, including the circulation of money, translation of languages, angelic visitations, spread of infectious diseases, and processes of transference and counter-transference that occur during psychoanalysis.

Jewish culture places a great deal of emphasis on texts and their means of transmission. At various points in Jewish history, the primary mode of transmission has changed in response to political, geographical, technological, and cultural shifts. Contemporary textual transmission in Jewish culture has been influenced by secularization, the return to Hebrew and the emergence of modern Yiddish, and the new centers of Jewish life in the United States and in Israel, as well as by advancements in print technology and the invention of the Internet. Volume XXXI of Studies in Contemporary Jewry deals with various aspects of textual transmission in Jewish culture in the last two centuries. Essays in this volume examine old and new kinds of media and their meanings; new modes of transmission in fields such as Jewish music; and the struggle to continue transmitting texts under difficult political circumstances. Two essays analyze textual transmission in the works of giants of modern Jewish literature: S.Y. Agnon, in Hebrew, and Isaac Bashevis Singer, in Yiddish. Other essays discuss paratexts in the East, print cultures in the West, and the organization of knowledge in libraries and encyclopedias.

In Transmitted Wounds, Amit Pinchevski explores the ways media technology and logic shape the social life of trauma both clinically and culturally. Bringing media theory to bear on trauma theory, Pinchevski reveals the technical operations that inform the conception and experience of traumatic impact and memory. He offers a bold thesis about the deep association of media and trauma: media bear witness to the human failure to bear witness, making the traumatic technologically transmissible and reproducible. Taking up a number of case studies--the radio broadcasts of the Eichmann trial; the videotaping of Holocaust testimonies; recent psychiatric debates about trauma through media following the 9/11 attacks; current controversy surrounding drone operators' post-trauma; and digital platforms of algorithmic-holographic witnessing and virtual reality exposure therapy for PTSD--Pinchevski demonstrates how the technological mediation of trauma feeds into the traumatic condition itself. The result is a novel understanding of media as constituting the material conditions for trauma to appear as something that cannot be fully approached and yet somehow must be. While drawing on contemporary materialist media theory, especially the work of Friedrich Kittler and his followers, Pinchevski goes beyond the anti-humanistic tendency characterizing the materialist approach, discovering media as bearing out the human vulnerability epitomized in trauma, and finding therein a basis for moral concern in the face of violence and atrocity. Transmitted Wounds unfolds the ethical and political stakes involved in the technological transmission of mental wounds across clinical, literary, and cultural contexts.

Introducing a largely neglected area of existing interactions between Greco-Roman antiquity and media theory, this volume addresses the question of why interactions in this area matter and how they might be developed further. It aims not only to promote awareness of the presence of theclassics in media theory but also to encourage more media attentiveness among scholars of Greece and Rome. By bringing together an international team of scholars with interdisciplinary expertise in areas ranging from classical literature and classical reception studies to art history, media theoryand media history, film studies, philosophy, and cultural studies, the volume as a whole engages with numerous aspects of "classical" Greece and Rome revolving around issues of philosophy, cultural history, literature, aesthetics, and epistemology.Each chapter provides its own definition of what constitutes mediality and how it operates, constructs different genealogies of the concept of the medium, and engages with emergent fields within media studies that range from cultural techniques to media archaeology, diagrammatology, andintermediality. By seeking to foreground the persistency of Greco-Roman paradigms across the different strands of media theory the volume persuasively calls for a closer consideration of the conceptual underpinnings of the cultural practices around the transformation of ancient Greece and Rome into"classics."

A new vision of money as a communication technology that creates and sustains invisible—often exclusive—communities One of the basic structures of everyday life, money is at its core a communication media. Payment systems—cash, card, app, or Bitcoin—are informational and symbolic tools that integrate us into, or exclude us from, the society that surrounds us. Examining the social politics of financial technologies, Lana Swartz reveals what’s at stake when we pay. This accessible and insightful analysis comes at a moment of disruption: from “fin-tech” startups to cryptocurrency schemes, a variety of technologies are poised to unseat traditional financial infrastructures. Swartz explains these changes, traces their longer histories, and demonstrates their consequences. Getting paid and paying determines whether or not you can put food on the table. She shows just how important these invisible systems are. The data that payment produces is uniquely revelatory—and newly valuable. New forms of money create new forms of identity, new forms of community, and new forms of power.

Narratives of Transmission

All narratives undergo some form of narrative transmission. Narratives of Transmission examines the storytelling process structured between the fictional universe of the text and the reader. By focusing on narratives that dramatize the medium of their telling--letters, diaries, memoirs, transcribed oral narrations, and the editorial prefaces that enframe them--the present volume uncovers dynamics of textuality that have long been overlooked by critics who have pursued the interpretation of narrative works at the expense of the processes of signification operations in narration. By studying these special cases of narrative transfer, Bernard Duyfhuizen brings the reader to a clearer understanding of how the acts of transmission and framing within the literary text can affect the production of meaning. Drawing on the theories of Gerard Genette, Roland Barthes, Mikhail Bakhtin, Seymour Chatman, Susan Lanser, and Peter Brooks, Duyfhuizen develops the first extended reading of the code of communication in narrative poetics and of the force exerted by the medium of transmission on the reader's structuration of the literary text. This provocative study of the different acts and conditions of narrative transmission establishes a new ontological plane for the study and interpretation of prose fiction. By examining the various narrational filters through which a story must pass, Narratives of Transmission uncovers the interpretively rich problematics of narrative textuality. Duyfhuizen's study goes beyond narratological description to provide interpretive readings that engage the mirrored play of transmission metaphors and metonymies in both the stories and the discourses of narrative fiction from the classical epic to the postmodern. These exemplary readings reveal, on the one hand, the power of transmission devices in the production of a particular version of the narrated events and the inescapable gap between the object of representation and its textual representation; while on the other hand, these readings display the negotiation of the different acts of reading encoded in the text and engaged at the outer frame by the actual reader. After an introductory chapter detailing the theory of narrative transmission, Duyfhuizen explores the dynamics of transmission and transgression in epistolary fiction, the problematics of transmitting the "self" in diary fiction, and the inclusion of letters, diaries, and other documents in hybrid narratives of transmission. He then turns to the questions surrounding the framing devices of editorial prefaces and notes paratextually included in the fiction. Lastly, Duyfhuizen considers the textual dynamics of dialogism in narratives of transcribed oral narrations.
