New Issue Journal ICONO14: Technopoïesis: transmedia mythologisation.

Vol.15, Núm 1 (2017)


Editors: Francisco García and Manuel Gertrudix

Coordinators: Asunción López-Varela Azcárate (University Complutense of Madrid) and Henry Sussman (Yale University).

This thematic issue of Icono14 explores the common premise underlying all human disciplines: the confirmation that technology has a direct impact upon sign production, distribution and reception and, thus, upon the entire system of human thought, cultural representation and cognition. The collection examines transmedial representations of technological advance by looking at their mythical shades of meanings as strategic narratives. As practical knowledge engaged in the creation and use of tools and machines as well as in the development of techniques and methods of organization that perform specific functions in making human life easier, the technologies of the past can shed some light on the future that emerging media can bring about for human groups.
