The Technological Introject : Friedrich Kittler between Implementation and the Incalculable( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Technological Introject explores the futures opened up across the humanities and social sciences by the influential media theorist Friedrich Kittler. Joining the German tradition of media studies and systems theory to the Franco-American theoretical tradition marked by poststructuralism, Kittler's work has redrawn the boundaries of disciplines and of scholarly traditions.The contributors position Kittler in relation to Marshall McLuhan, Jacques Derrida, discourse analysis, film theory, and psychoanalysis. Ultimately, the book shows the continuing relevance of the often uncomfortable questions Kittler opened up about the cultural production and its technological entanglements

On the Serious Motherhood of Men: Dissonance in Music, Rhetoric, and Poetry by Nimrod Reitman( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation, "On the Serious Motherhood of Men: Dissonance in Music, Rhetoric, and Poetry", describes the often covert maternal tropologies and disruptions effected by femininity in theories of subjectivity and concepts of universality. A significant section of the dissertation examines this problem set in relation to a musical modality seen as early as in Claudio Monteverdi's musical grid of utterance known as the Seconda Prattica and his concept of dissonance. The historical and philosophical frameworks of the dissertation aim at marking disjunctions in figuration as seen both in the history of thought and in German and Italian modernist poetry. The dissertation analyses literary cases of male signatories who express a desire to become maternal placeholders, following a theoretical trajectory initiated by Friedrich Nietzsche, Lou Andreas-Salome, Sigmund Freud, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Jacques Derrida, and the way the maternal creates a border that upends discourse by becoming-music. Taking its cues from Maurice Blanchot's reading of Rainer Maria Rilke's Sonette an Orpheus, the dissertation reads the maternal in tandem with the sonic interruption it inescapably creates. The dissertation attempts to locate and map the gender bending effect that "the maternal" as well as music create in both rhetoric and psychoanalysis. The dissertation turns to texts that struggle with the embarrassment of the mother's dissonant arrival on the scene of writing. The arrival is given, in most cases, as noise and provokes a violent desire for an expulsion of the maternal and the musical elements that pervade discourse. All the texts read in the dissertation stage, whether covertly or with explicit intent, their difficult incorporations and disavowals of untameable maternity. Each contributes a singular idiom and array of conceptual sensors with which to approach or deny Mother a place in canonic discursive formations. The dissertation begins by reading rhetoric's enmity to the musical score and the way it implicates maternal articulations. I pursue this by creating a rendezvous between German and French rhetorical theories and Friedrich Kittler whose discourse analysis showed a more permissive relation to the maternal and her mouth. For rhetoric, following protocols initiated by Paul de Man, music becomes a problem when it seeks to ascertain a position that displaces rhetoric as a harbinger of textual meaning. According to theories of rhetorical persuasion (Beredsamkeit), music should be, at best, beautiful. Everything beyond that makes music problematically political. Rather than listening to the musical score, Paul de Man, that is Rhetoric, offers a "genetic model" when he reads philosophers who showed affinity to the musical score such as Nietzsche (and Rousseau) in ways that uncover rhetoric's musical sensitivities nonetheless. Music is invited as an apt rhetorical device, or at least as an allegorical accompaniment, when and only when it is dissonant. Even then, music is on the verge of being expulsed and cannot secure for herself a stable rhetorical topos or trope. Music and mother become homonyms for Nietzsche's understanding of Mutterschos in ways that inescapably connects him to maternal-musical figures as early as Medea. My reading of Nietzsche uncovers the so-called feminine figure that haunts this dissertation at its entirety: Mr. Lou Andreas Salome. The dissertation revisits Salome's stations: Friedrich Nietzsche, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Sigmund Freud in order to uncover the paleonymic nature of defunct concepts such as "male", female", and "mother". Particular attention is given to both Ingeborg Bachmann and Emmanuel Levinas who understood the problem of addressing mother and demonstrate a different modality, wholly musical, in order to address what seems to be unaddressable. For Levinas it is a matter of substituting what can never be substituted, which makes the mother topographically expulsed into a dedicatory moment: holding the text and at once apostrophizing it. Levinas even needs to switch languages and turn toward Hebrew in order to address Mother. For Bachmann it is a matter of reshuffling the grid of Geschlecht, something that happens around one's dreisgste Jahre and entails the phantasm of infant death in an attempt to create a new language and rhetoric. For all of these writers the mother as well as the musical score metonymize each other, inching toward Jacques Derrida's understanding of the Matriarchive in Archive Fever; namely, something that is not certain and never a given and is, in most cases, upends discourse

Untying the Mother Tongue On Language, Affect, and the Inconscious : Conference by ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The conference Untying the Mother Tongue intends to re-think affective and cognitive attachments to language by deconstructing their metaphysical and colonialist presuppositions. If traditional constructions of a monolingual speaker, a pure "mother tongue" reveal the ideology of the European nation-state, then today's celebration of multilingual competencies simply reflects the rise of global capitalism and its demand for transnational labor markets. French poststructuralist thought has problematized the notion of a "mother tongue" by dividing it into two discrete elements-the "maternal" and the "linguistic"--And by exposing their metaphysical and colonialist presuppositions. Can something be salvaged of the notion of a mother tongue? What are the remains, traces, or vestiges of a language no longer directly tied to the mother yet resounding with a maternal echo and at the same time manifesting itself as a primary idiom with respect to its affective and aesthetic dimensions? This "residual notion" of a mother tongue supposes that language is indeed a basic human need (like food, shelter, or clothing), since it provides an indispensible access to a symbolic dimension shaping affectivity and knowledge
