Title: Self-Reference in the Media
Edited By: Winfried Nöth
Nina Bishara
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110194647-1
Series Title: Approaches to Applied Semiotics [AAS] 6
Description:

This book investigates how the media have become self-referential or
self-reflexive instead of mediating between the real or fictional worlds
about which their messages pretend to be and between the audience that they
wish to inform, counsel, or entertain. The concept of self-reference is
viewed very broadly. Self-reflexivity, metatexts, metapictures, metamusic,
metacommunication, as well as intertextual, and intermedial references are
all conceived of as forms of self-reference, although to different degrees
and levels.

The contributions focus on the semiotic foundations of reference and
self-reference, discuss the transdisciplinary context of self-reference in
postmodern culture, and examine original studies from the worlds of print
advertising, photography, film, television, computer games, media art, web
art, and music. A wide range of different media products and topics is
discussed including self-promotion on TV, the TV show "Big Brother", the TV
format “historytainment”, media nostalgia, the documentation of
documentation in documentary films, Marilyn Monroe in photographs, humor
and paradox in animated films, metacommunication in computer games,
metapictures, metafiction, metamusic, body art, and net art.

OF INTEREST TO: Students and Researchers in the Fields of Communication,
Semiotics, Culture, Media, Film, Television, Cyberculture (Computer Games,
Net Art, etc.), and Musicology
