The International Journal of Screendance, issue 2

Claudia Kappenberg (Editor), Douglas Rosenberg (Editor)

Research output: Other contribution


Scaffolding the Medium brings together a number of historical texts within the context of screendance as part of an endeavor to build a variable scaffolding, one that begins to both create a common knowledge base and also to support a kind of cantilevered interdisciplinarity. This issue opens with an edited transcript of a presentation by Professor Ian Christie originally delivered at the first seminar of the Screendance Network at the University of Brighton in September 2009, in which Christie surveys a history of cinema under the title The Cinema Has Not Yet Been Invented. This transcript is followed by five curated discussions which each take as their initial premise a key text that speaks to concerns relevant to the discourse of contemporary screendance. Iterative texts by writers including, Martin Heidegger, Amelia Jones, Laura Mulvey, Rosalind Krauss and Pia Ednie-Brown inspire reflections by Ann Cooper Albright, Ann Dils, Kent de Spain, Lisa Naugle and John Crawford, Tom Lopez, Harmony Bench, Hannah Kosstrin, Jason Farman, Melissa Blanco Borelli, Douglas Rosenberg, Virginia Piper, Terry Sprague, Rodrigo Alonso, Claudia Rosiny, Kyra Norman, Miranda Pennell, Augusto Corrieri, Simon Ellis, Dianne Reid and Lucy Cash. Artist’s pages by Adam Roberts, reviews by Scott deLahunta and Claudia Rosiny and a section on Maya Deren by Elinor Cleghorn. Finally, the issue features a report on the recent Screendance Symposium in Brighton by Claudia Kappenberg and Sarah Whatley. This issue is edited by Douglas Rosenberg and Claudia Kappenberg.
