Abstract

© The chapters their several authors, 2013. In a world where change has become the only constant, how does the perpetually new relate to the old? How does cinema, itself once a new medium, relate both to previous or outmoded media and to what we now refer to as New Media?. This collection sets out to answer these questions by focusing on the relationships between cinema and other media, cultural productions and diverse forms of entertainment. Cinematicity in Media History highlights the complex ways in which media anticipate, interfere with and draw on one other, demonstrating how cinematicity makes itself felt in practices of seeing, reading, writing and thinking both before and after the 'birth' of cinema. It examines the interrelations between cinema, literature, photography and other modes of representation not only to each other, but amid a host of other minor and major media - the magic lantern, the zoetrope, the flick-book, the iPhone and the computer - and provides crucial insights into the development of media and their overlapping technologies and aesthetics.
