Abstract [en]

The article will center on the necessary but always problematic notion of media borders, which has since long been scrutinized by intermedial studies. My initial observation is that it is impossi-ble to navigate in one’s material and mental surrounding if one does not categorize objects and phenomena; without categorizations everything would be a blur – diffi cult to grasp and to expla-in. However, categorization requires borders, and borders can and should always be disputed. The area of communication is not an exception: on one hand it is necessary to somehow categorize media into types, and on the other hand it is not evident how these categorizations should be made. My aim is not to argue in favor of or against certain ways of classifying communicative media, but to try to explain some of the functions and limitations of media borders. I argue, in brief, that there are different types of media borders and hence different types of media types; if these differences are not recognized, the understanding of media categorization will remain confused. Whereas some media borders are relatively stable, others are more subject to change; therefore, media borders can be understood to be both identifi ed and construed. However, in the end virtually all media borders can be bridged over through our cross-modal cognitive capacities.

Abstract [en]

This open access book is a methodical treatise on narration in different types of media. A theoretical rather than a historical study, Transmedial Narration is relevant for an understanding of narration in all times, including our own. By reconstructing the theoretical framework of transmedial narration, this book enables the inclusion of all kinds of communicative media forms on their own terms. The treatise is divided into three parts. Part I presents established and newly developed concepts that are vital for formulating a nuanced theoretical model of transmedial narration. Part II investigates the specific transmedial media characteristics that are most central for realizing narratives in a plenitude of different media types. Finally, Part III contains brief studies in which the narrative potentials of painting, instrumental music, mathematical equations, and guided tours are illuminated with the aid of the theoretical framework developed throughout the book. Suitable for advanced students and scholars, this book provides tools to disentangle the narrative potential of any form of communication.

Abstract [en]

In this survey I will first place transmediation within the broader frames of intermediality and transmediality and then recapitulate some of my ideas on transmediation. I will also continually relate all the chapters in this volume to my conceptual framework and to each other. However, it is not my task here to indulge in in-depth discussions of the chapters; I will instead pick out some relevant features in them that make comparison and overview possible.

2019 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This collection offers a multi-faceted exploration of transmediations, the processes of transfer and transformation that occur when communicative acts in one medium are mediated again through another. While previous research has explored these processes from a broader perspective, Salmose and Elleström argue that a better understanding is needed of the extent to which the outcomes of communicative acts are modified when transferred across multimodal media toward fostering a better understanding of our knowledge of communication more generally. Building on this imperative as a point of departure, the book details a variety of transmediations, viewed through three different lenses. The first part of the volume looks at narrative transmediations, building on existing work done by Marie-Laure Ryan on transmedia storytelling. The second section focuses less on narratological instances and more on the spatial dynamics of transmediation and the role of embodiment in the process. The final third of the book explores the challenges of transmediating scientific data into narrative format in the context of environmental issues. Taken together, these sections highlight a range of case studies of transmediations and in turn, the complexity and variety of the process, informed by the different methodologies of the different disciplines to which these transmediations belong. This innovative volume will be of particular interest to students and scholars in multimodality, communication, intermediality, semiotics, and adaptation studies.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to form a new communication model, which is centered on the intermediate stage of communication, here called medium. The model is intended to be irreducible, to highlight the essential communication entities and their interrelations, and potentially to cover all conceivable kinds of communication of meaning. It is designed to clearly account for both verbal and nonverbal meaning, the different roles played by minds and bodies in communication, and the relation between presemiotic and semiotic media features. As a result, the model also pinpoints fundamental obstacles for communication located in media products themselves, and demonstrates how Shannon's model of transmission of computable data can be incorporated in a model of human communication of meaning.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to construct a model that demonstrates how human communication, involving all kinds of media, may not only correspond to but also put us in contact with what we perceive to be the surrounding world. In which ways is truthfulness actually established by communication ? To answer this, the notion of indices is employed: signs based on contiguity. However, an investigation of indices' outward direction - creating truthfulness in communication - also requires an understanding of their inward direction: establishing coherence. To investigate these two functions, further concepts and various elementary categorizations are proposed: it is argued that there are several types of contiguity and many varieties of indexical objects, which invalidates the coarse fiction-nonfiction distinction.

Abstract [pt]

Este artigo se concentra na necessária – mas sempre problemática – noção das fronteiras das mídias, que há muito tem sido examinada pelos estudos intermidiáticos. Minha observação inicial é a de que é impossível transitar no ambiente material e mental de determinado sujeito sem categorizar objetos e fenômenos; sem as categorizações tudo seria um borrão – difícil de entender e de explicar. No entanto, a categorização exige fronteiras, e as fronteiras podem e devem sempre ser questionadas. A área de comunicação não é uma exceção: por um lado, é necessário categorizar as mídias em tipos; por outro lado, não fica claro como essas categorizações devem ser feitas. Meu objetivo não é argumentar a favor ou contra certas formas de se classificar as mídias comunicativas, mas tentar explicar algumas das funções e limitações das fronteiras midiáticas. Argumento, resumidamente, que existem diferentes tipos de fronteiras de mídias e, portanto, diferentes tipos de mídias. Se essas diferenças não forem reconhecidas, a compreensão da categorização das mídias permanecerá confusa. Enquanto algumas fronteiras midiáticas são relativamente estáveis, outras estão mais sujeitas a mudanças; portanto, as fronteiras das mídias podem ser entendidas como sendo tanto identificadas quanto construídas. No entanto, no final, praticamente todas as fronteiras das mídias podem ser superadas por meio de nossas capacidades cognitivas cross-modais.

Abstract [fr]

Cette intervention s’inscrit dans le domaine de la communicationhumaine et se base sur l’idée qu’esprit/cognition et corps sontintimement interdépendants. J’aborderai les points suivants, qui serontconsidérés comme corrélés.1) Le corps comme producteur de produits média. Toutecommunication commence par l’« esprit/ la conscience d’unproducteur », situé dans un corps, qui, d’une manière ou d’uneautre, génère un produit média, qui devrait être entendu commel’entité intermédiaire rendant possible une communication entreesprits.2) Le corps comme produit média. Les produits média sontnécessairement matériels d’une certaine manière, ce qui impliquequ’ils soient des entités ou des processus physiques. Ils peuventêtre des corps organiques, des entités non organiques, ou unecombinaison des deux.3) Le corps comme percevant des produits média. L’«esprit dupercevant » ne peut entrer en contact avec le produit médiad’aucune autre manière qu’à travers la perception sensorielle, quiest un phénomène éminemment corporel.4) Le corps dans l’esprit/la conscience percevant les produitsmédias. Lorsque des corps acquièrent une fonction de produitmédia, ils agissent comme signes – des « representamens » dansla terminologie de Peirce. Toutefois, des corps peuvent égalementêtre des « objets » de signification ; ils peuvent être représentés.La communication peut donc impliquer la représentation de corpset objets concrets. La communication peut également impliquerla représentation d’entités plus abstraites telles que des concepts,idées, intentions, et relations ; mais bien qu’abstraites, de tellesnotions mentales sont, dans une large mesure, ancrées dansl’expérience de nos corps interagissant avec le monde environnant.
