Transmitted Wounds

Media and the Mediation of Trauma

Amit Pinchevski

  • Explores the ways media technology and logic shape the social life of trauma both clinically and culturally
  • Engages with recent and ongoing debates in materialist media theory
  • Features a series of case studies--from the radiocasts of the Eichmann trial to virtual reality therapy for PTSD--that demonstrate how the technological mediation of trauma feeds into the traumatic condition itself
