Television's Useful Images

Workshop organized by Anne-Katrin Weber, NOMIS Fellow, eikones, University of Basel and Markus Stauff, University of Amsterdam

What is television doing in the military, in schools, in the medical context? How to think of television images that help decide the outcome of a sports competition? This two-day workshop investigates those and other applications of television that redefine the medium as a useful tool, rather than a mass medium. It brings together scholars from various disciplines including media studies, science and technology studies, history of medicine, and television studies. The workshop will be organized as a hybrid event (with online and offline participation) and the discussion will be continued at a follow-up workshop in Amsterdam on 1 and 2 December 2022.
