International Conference: Media Aesthetics of Occidentalism

Due to the immense hostile geopolitical dynamics all over the world, an interrogation of the dichotomies of West/East, Occident/Orient, or North/South seems still very necessary. It is with regard to this observation that scholars have been discussing the concept of Occidentalism for more than thirty years now.

The goal of the conference is threefold:
Firstly (Theory), the significance of the concept of Occidentalism will be theoretically rediscussed. Secondly (Topical Cases of Occidentalism), the concept will be explored in regard to its usefulness in describing contemporary problems (since the 2000s onwards; also genealogically based). Thirdly (Media Aesthetics), the role of media aesthetic qualities for the effectiveness of occidentalist discourses will be discussed theoretically and empirically. The conference explores these three foci through a global spectrum of presentations and a variety of media configurations.
