preparations

it is almost time for the new academic year to begin. hard to believe it, but soon the classes will start up. what will i be doing this year. looks busy! 一個學年快要開始。以下有幾項企畫complicity project: the manuscript for the complicity project is due march first. that's less time than it sounds like. i currently have a plan for pulling together the manuscript, which for the most part could, say the anonymous readers, be more readerly 爇鬧群眾:進香與文化構造的書稿,將於2009三月初要交給出版公司。初評論的結果是該書對讀者不夠友善,所以正在進行改進計畫 traces of the diverse: i will need to place much of the traces work on hold, but i do hope to produce more podcasts. as i produce them, i will announce them here 趕稿,因此多元的規蹟研究需要停斷,可是台灣音響環境,等podcast希望可以製作,若有會在本blog報告 thoughts for teaching: one of the courses i am teaching in the autumn concerns visual cultures. certainly debord's _society of the spectacle_ serves as an important text for such a course. i wonder, however, if it is possible to think of debord beyond the spectacle as he conceived it--connected to the "push" mass media--and bring it to the myriad ways that "new media" have formed a generalized spectacle of consumer preference and social relations. as early as benjamin's work on mechanical reproducibility, scholarship has attended to the ways that publics became visible to themselves in film. according to benjamin, these spectacles partook in a fascist "aestheticization of politics." in response, one challenge of film was to provide a politicization of aesthetics. currently, public visibility is a hallmark of "pull" media and social networking sites, in which people actively collaborate in the production and dissemination of knowledge about themselves. to what extent can debord's notions of the society of the spectacle be extended to this situation, or do we need new tools to think about the generalized spectacle? 下學期的課程中有“視覺文化“ (visual cultures)課,這門課,也讓我想起一個有趣的問題。 當然guy debord的“景像社會“已成為視覺文化學的經典,可是debord的論點,針對傳統大眾傳播媒體,如影片,電視,等,因此其對數位(或“新“)媒體的詮釋能力恐有限。 若論新媒體,特別是社會網路站點,這種所謂互動媒體已將消費傾向及人際關係徹底地景像化,結果形成一個普遍景像的現像。比如,上facebook的我們,都可以在網路上成為完全可視的人物,我們在那裡主動地,也很自動地,跟市場妍究,和各種單位合作,製作及播放有關我們自己的資訊,同時,我們只把這種勞動當作消遣。這樣以來,一個大眾的可視性,其實比debord想像的顯著有異,debord的論述,要如何延伸?我們需不需要新的觀念來對付此普遍景像的現像?
