Week eight: Mediology and the Image: Mediological Analyses 2
Further exploration of Debray’s mediological analyses – of ‘the image’ and the difference focussing on the material realisation of an image does to how it is used and transmitted (passed down through history) and who it gathers together to view it and how it is shown. Stafford (2013) summarises and assesses Debray’s work in images and their histories – he appreciates key aspects of his work but remains ambivalent about a deal of it.

Week nine: Mediology and Religion
Debray is not interested in religion as truth claims but as the material realisation of history (transmission) over, sometimes, very long periods of time (Christianity is nearly 2,000 years old, Sikhkism about 500 years.)
