Reflecting Ourselves Through Digital Media

Bent Fausing - Organizer

Reflecting has a double meaning, mirroring and thinking. The seminar will investigate how these two meanings intervene in each other. As we perceive we are already in pre-refectory state, and thinking involves a lot of not only thoughts, but also of senses and sensing, wherefrom our thoughts starts and where our thoughts ends. How are our reflections in the digital age? Human experience is based on everything that surrounds us. Not only the physical reality, but also our perception of it. This perception, which consists of presence, intimacy and materiality, is being transformed by digital technology. Separate rooms can now be merged, and the boundaries between our virtual and physical bodies break resistance via technology. There is a close and dynamic relationship between the screen formation and self-formation, the modern individual. The seminar will take a close look, ask questions and give answers to this transformation. Keynote speaker professor Jill Walker Rettberg, University of Bergen, Norway.Besides Rettberg, a number of scholars associated with the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics will lecture at the seminar: Helle Kannik Haastrup, Louise Yung Nielsen, Krista Stinne Greve Rasmussen, Andreas Stæhr and Bent Fausing.
