Media conduction: Festivals, networks, and boundaried spaces

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The following paper is a report on extended qualitative fieldwork regarding the phenomenon of media festivals, including those related to both film and comic book culture. It is also an initial attempt at forming the trends and patterns suggested by this fieldwork into something like a theory of media conduction. I define media conduction as the transfer of information due to a difference in level of access (from a region of higher access to a region of lower access) through a transmission medium (e.g., festivals, conventions, events) that simultaneously reifies the value of that access. The usefulness of this phrase, I hope to show, is twofold. On the one hand, it uses the concept of conduction as it is defined with regard to the transfer of heat or electricity to point out a similar process with regard to information and access, and to clarify how the transmission of information and access happens along a circuit and produces power. Media conduction as a concept also offers another avenue of exploring the decreasingly defensible binary of consumption and production, and not simply by juxtaposing and connecting two segments of these words (that is, “consumption” and “production”). Rather, media conduction as a concept brings with its semantic play a subtle exploration of power relationships often assumed to be transcended in the more emancipatory notions of consumer power.
