Classics and Media Theory

Edited by Pantelis Michelakis

Classical Presences

  • Introduces a largely neglected area of existing interactions between Greco-Roman antiquity and media theory
  • Exposes the centrality of classical paradigms across a number of different media-theoretical works in English, French, and especially German media studies
  • Brings into focus the implications of the study of media for the study of culture, especially in terms of the interplay between culture and non-human agents
  • Explores ways in which processes of cultural production and reception are conditioned by processes of cultural transmission
