11. Media authenticity and authority in Mauritius: On the mediality of language

Pages 266-273
Patrick Eisenlohr

Highlights
* I explore how language as a medium interacts with media technologies of other
kinds.
* The empirical example is Mauritian Muslims’ uses of sound reproduction
technology in performing devotional poetry.
* Mediality is the overarching analytical frame for the analysis of such
interaction.
* The oscillation between the foregrounding of the medium and its
phenomenological disappearance is the comparative dimension for examining the
interplay of different kinds of mediality.
