ImageJournal of Galatasaray University Communication Faculty

Technology converts everything it touches. In many countries, public broadcasting system has commenced as terrestrial broadcasting. In the following years, private radios and TVs have entered their broadcasting lives by the introduction of satellite technology. The limits of terrestrial broadcasts have been demolished due to satellite broadcasting, conversions have been experienced, a different broadcasting approach have started to dominate. New Television viewer groups grew out from this different broadcasting approach.  Today, the usage of advanced computer and internet technologies, the increasing usage of computers, listening radio and watching TV even on mobile phones, have brought the society and broadcasting to a milestone. The traditional broadcasting and traditional watching habits by which the interaction between the listener and the TV viewer and participation were limited, have given their place to a participative and an interactive relationship between the listener, TV viewer and broadcaster. Digital technology does not only allow freedom of time to listeners and TV viewers, but also offers the possibility for the broadcasts to be watched anywhere regarding participation and location.

Zafer Aracagök Presented @ Université Paris Quest

1Dr. Zafer Aracagök (Istanbul Bilgi University) gave a seminar, Deleuze/Desonance, at  Département de Philosophie, Université Paris Ouest, Nanterre La Défense on January 26, 2013.

Invited by the renown Deleuze scholar, Prof. Dr.Anne Sauvagnargues, Aracagök addressed the following issues:

DELEUZE/DESONANCE

Abstract

If philosophy is supposed to deviate the thought from the rule of the specular, as once was attempted by the Situationists, concept of ‘resonance’ in Deleuze and Guattari is perhaps already offering a non-relational relationship between various pairs or binaries which, especially in recent history and in the history of philosophy, have fettered thought to a sedentary regression under the rule of ‘real-politics’. Problematizing the maintenance of the specular as such, in this seminar, I aim to raise the question whether there is something else which puts the Deleuzian concept of resonance into resonance? I discuss that informing Deleuze’s reading of Duns Scotus, Leibniz, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Lacan, and quantum theory, this question leads to a question of the ‘first’ and thus creates various problems for Deleuze’s theorisation of the paradoxical entity, noise, voice and distance. Responding to this difficulty, I ‘point to’a concept, ‘desonance’ as a way of overwriting it with a problematisation I call ‘mimesis without specularisation’ or ‘specularisation without mimesis’ all with the intention of opening up new paths towards deterritorialisations particularly under the light of a nomadic concept of ‘resonance’ on a plane of continuous flight.
