It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. In an era of heightened securitization, print, televisual and networked media have become obsessed with the 'pre-mediation' of future events. Lucid and convincing throughout, Premediation interrogates our mediatized futures, today. It is essential reading. Grusin remediates his well known work on media, technology and time through an affective political sphere; one that, he argues, is cultivating an uncanny feeling of inevitability.

Grusin, Premediation. American new-media scholar Richard Grusin was born in After receiving his Ph. From he was William S. Transcendentalist Hermeneutics: Institutional Authority and the Higher Criticism of the Bible Duke, , which concerns the influence of European primarily German theories of biblical interpretation on the New England Transcendentalists.
Grusin asserts that this book is a revision of his doctoral dissertation from the University of California-Berkeley. Remediation: Understanding New Media MIT, , co-authored with Jay David Bolter, which sketches out a genealogy of new media, beginning with the contradictory visual logics underlying contemporary digital media.
After working closely with colleagues at Wayne State University to explore the frameworks of affectivity, Grusin first presented his concept of premediation at the Universities of Utrecht and Amsterdam in the Netherlands in March The lecture was then translated into Italian and published in Acoma, an Italian journal for American Studies, in On the Abu Ghraib Photographs. Though Premediation has been published, Grusin has not stopped writing about the concept, both formally and informally.
In his blog, Grusin continued to explore the ways in which premediation manifests in relation to important world events, including the election. Because Remediation has become core reading for those studying media-based disciplines, critical reviews of Premediation must first dissect its relationship to its predecessor. Both Rob Coley and Jussi Parikka open their reviews of Premediation with concern that the book may simply re-hash the theories presented in Remediation —and pleasant surprise that their concerns prove false.
Grusin, on the other hand, embraces the idea that Premediation is an extension of his previous studies and writings on remediation, though presents Premediation as both a continuation and a counterpart to Remediation.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Amazon readers have not yet posted any customer reviews regarding Premediation. Grusin defines the key term premediation and speaks briefly about the initial response to his concept:.
The response I received to this argument was overwhelmingly affirmative, especially from those academics and students fresh from the worldwide protests of 15 February In fact where in the s the immediacy of the real was defined in opposition to the multiplicity of mediation, in the 21st century hypermediation is the mark of the real, as epitomized most dramatically in the Fox series 24, which depicted real-time not in terms of the erasure of mediation but in terms of its multiplication.
In our current moment of mobile, socially networked media, immediacy is manifested as mobility, connectivity, and flow, the easy, almost seamless, interaction among our countless personal and collective media sites—FB, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Tumblr, and countless others. Although both logics of mediation are at play in the 21st century, they operate differently and with different concepts…Remediation, the refashioning or re-mediation, of one medium by another, operated in two contradictory ways, seeking on the one hand to erase all signs of mediation in providing an immediate encounter with the real and on the other hand to multiply or call attention to remediation in what Jay Bolter and I referred to as hypermediacy.
Remediation differs from mediatization, which refers to the technical and social transformation of contemporary culture, politics, economy, etc. Remediation on the other hand refers to the logics of mediation that are enabled by and that enable mediatization…Premediation is one of the predominant ways in which remediation manifests itself in the 21st century.
Premediation does not displace remediation but deploys it in different aesthetic, sociotechnical, or political formations. The double logic of remediation still obtains, but its conflicting media logics are formally different. Coley, Rob. Clark, Geoff. Correa, Elizabeth Saaed. De Goede, M.

Premediation: Affect and Mediality After 9/11
So, too, had premediation more generally. Looking back, I would maintain that we were right to single out Strange Days as an instance of remediation as a cultural dominant at the end of the twentieth century. But we did not at that point recognize the way in which this double logic — if not precisely nearing its end — was at least in the process of being re-mediated according to another logic, a logic of premediation in which the future has always already been pre-mediated. In other words we failed to understand fully the way in which Strange Days was already participating in a logic of premediation insofar as it both pre-mediated the United States particularly Los Angeles nearly five years into the future and pre-mediated future media practices and technologies.
