Dear all,

In the freshly published open access volume Pandemic Media: Preliminary Notes Towards an Inventory you will find two essays on film festivals:

“Let’s Go the Overhausen!<https://pandemicmedia.meson.press/chapters/education-instruction/lets-go-to-oberhausen-some-notes-on-an-online-film-festival-experience/> Some Notes on an Online Film Festival Experience” by Wanda Strauven
“Vulnerabilities and Resiliency in the Festival Ecosystem<https://pandemicmedia.meson.press/chapters/space-scale/vulnerabilities-and-resiliency-in-the-festival-ecosystem-notes-on-approaching-film-festivals-in-pandemic-times/>: Notes on Approaching Film Festivals in Pandemic Times” by yours truly

With 38 contributions, Pandemic Media delves into a riche variety of topical issues, that range from the uncanny encounter with oneself during video conferencing, media visualizations of the pandemic, and students who turn their cameras off in class to K-pop, Queer women’s dating apps, facial masks and Donald Trump’s home shopping governance.

Book description
With its unprecedented scale and consequences the COVID-19 pandemic has generated a variety of new configurations of media. Responding to demands for information, synchronization, regulation, and containment, these “pandemic media” reorder social interactions, spaces, and temporalities, thus contributing to a reconfiguration of media technologies and the cultures and polities with which they are entangled. Highlighting media’s adaptability, malleability, and scalability under the conditions of a pandemic, the contributions to this volume track and analyze how media emerge, operate, and change in response to the global crisis and provide elements towards an understanding of the post-pandemic world to come.

Enjoy reading! Best wishes,
Marijke
