    Johan Fornäs: Defending Culture: Conceptual Foundations and Contemporary Debate

    Higher seminar with Johan Fornäs from MKV at Södertörn University, arranged by Media and Communication Studies at the School of Culture and Education, Södertörn University.

    Johan Fornäs will briefly present his new book, recently published by Palgrave Macmillan (http://www.palgrave.com/9783319578095). The book deals with the development and problematics of the concept of culture, and it consists of three main parts. The first part distinguishes four main concepts of  culture and presents their histories, uses, limitations and contradictions. The second part scrutinizes how neomaterialist and posthumanist critics have challenged the hermeneutic notion of culture as meaning- making, making great efforts to escape the spirals of interpretation and meaning. Particular attention is given to anti hermeneutic voices in media archaeology and cultural materialism. Learning from such intriguing contestations, the third part in five theses reconstructs an updated agenda for cultural studies, based on creative imagination and communicative mediation in the dynamic interface between meaning and materiality. The book thus provides a survey of fundamental concepts and theories of culture for students and scholars in  the humanities and social sciences, while simultaneously also serving as an introductory guide to  contemporary debate in this field. It has been written with an ”RJ Sabbatical” grant from Stiftelsen  Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
