Literary and Cultural Theory: Cartographies of the Image in the 21st Century

If the spectacular explosion of images during the last 20 years is one of the signatures of our contemporary era, one of our most urgent tasks is to understand the role and place of these images in our everyday life, and this without assuming we know what an image is. If we are to understand the innumerable mediums and forms in which images now appear, this course suggests that we must read these mostly digitized, and even post-digitized, appearances of the image through patient, and persistently pre-digital forms of reading that, proleptically, already comprehend digital and even post-digital phenomena avant la lettre.
