5 comments on “Image wars

  1. I am pleased that the bibliography of Stiegler’s work I put together is of interest. I look forward to any comments or observations you may have about his work. I enjoyed your post on the individuation of warfare and can definitely see some resonance between the scopic regimes discussed above via Virilio with Stiegler’s work on aesthetics.

    In relation to your course (which sounds great!), you may find the work of my colleague Patrick Crogan of interest in relation to the imagery and simulation of war and how that has influenced and propagated into the imag(in)ary of video games – and of course in turn folded back into the apparatuses of war. In particular, his book Gameplay Mode is relevant here: http://www.upress.umn.edu/book-division/books/gameplay-mode and more recently Patrick has been thinking about drones and military robotics, so another resonance there – http://technophilia.wordpress.com/2012/07/27/what-i-did-on-my-holidays-6/
