Geschichte(n), Repräsentationen, Fiktionen: Medienarchive by Sascha Trültzsch-Wijnen,Alessandro Barberi,Thomas Ballhausen

By Sascha Trültzsch-Wijnen,Alessandro Barberi,Thomas Ballhausen

Der Band "Geschichte(n), Repräsentationen, Fiktionen" versammelt die Beiträge der forty five. Jahrestagung des Studienkreises Rundfunk und Geschichte, die in Kooperation mit der Zeitschrift Medienimpulse 2015 in Wien stattfand. Dabei stehen sowohl die Fiktionalisierung des Historischen als auch die Medialität des Erinnerns und Archivierens im Mittelpunkt. Es wird aber auch auf die Rolle und die Arbeit von Archiven eingegangen. Die Bedeutung audiovisueller Archivmaterialien hat vor dem Hintergrund der Jubiläen in den letzten Jahren zugenommen. Die sozialen und medialen Rahmenbedingungen führen dabei zu einer Selektivität, die nicht selten die immer gleichen Bilder heranzieht. Der Band geht vor allem dieser medialen Repräsentation des "Gestern im Heute" (Jan & Aleida Assmann) nach und handelt dabei auch von der Medialität der "Vergangenen Zukunft" (Reinhard Koselleck). Er fragt nach aktuellen Quellen, Projekten, Methoden und theoretischen Konzeptionen solcher medialen Repräsentationen und geht dabei auch auf die Rahmenbedingungen, konkreten Herausforderungen und Strategien von Archiven ein.
