Video Theories - A Transdisciplinary Reader.

Dieter Daniels and Jan Thoben (eds.), International texts in critical media aesthetics, Bloomsbury Academic 2022

Breaking new ground as the first transdisciplinary reader on video theories, the Video Theories Reader is a resource that will form the basis for further research and teaching. While theories of video have not yet formed an academic discipline comparable to the more canonized theories of photography, film, and television, the reader offers a major step toward bridging this “video gap” in media theory, which is remarkable considering today's omnipresence of the medium through online video portals and social media.

Consisting of a selection of eighty-three annotated source texts and twelve chapter introductions written by the editors, this book considers fifty years of scholarly and artistic reflections on the topic, representing an intergenerational and international set of voices. This transdisciplinary reader offers a conceptual framework for diverging and contradictory viewpoints, following the continuous transformations of what video was, is, and will be.
