Exploring Media Reflexivity: Proposing Mediacy

Abstract [en]

Processes of remediation(s) are ongoing social, technological and aesthetic practices with consequences for individual processes of intrasubjectivity and intersubjectivity. Remediaton(s) are essential for the reflexivity of gendered identity, or identities if you prefer. The capability to remediate is a skill and a way of thinking and acting. It is the cognitive and aesthetic capability to design and respond, always in motion, in transition, and in negotiation. I mean that this capability is a media reflexive capability. Media reflexivity thus has its explanation in the fact that we live in a world where more and more media are part of remediated everyday life. Media reflexivity works in two ways simultaneously: • using media make us aware of how media work, and • late modern reflexivity is a remediated reflexivity. It is the purpose of my paper to 1. explore “media reflexivity” theoretically and in relation to qualitative data from an ongoing research project called ”Genres in Transition. Aesthetic Writing Practices in Upper Secondary School” (financed by the Swedish Research Council 2003-2005), 2. propose “mediacy” as a concept concerning communicative competence intimately connected to media reflexivity; mediacy is then put into work in order to challenge “literacy” in its multiple variations within new media studies.
