Круглый стол «Проблемы истории и теории интермедиальных исследований»
The following article describes the April 9, 2022 roundtable “Issues of the History and Theory of Intermedial Studies”. The event was held on the National Research University Higher School of Economics’ St. Petersburg campus under the auspices of the research group “Transmedial Literature Studies”. Participants discussed the history and theory of intermediality in three sessions before delving into traditional (opera, cinema, etc.) and modern (video games, rock music, etc.) media and their multimodal nature. Speakers, panelists, and audience members attempted to determine how literature influences the other media and how fruitful it is to use philological methods to analyze other arts. It was revealed during the discussion that “old” and “new” media strive for syncretism not only within the object, but also at the genre, plurimedial, and cognitive levels. Several approaches to intermedial theory were presented, all of which are primarily interdisciplinary.
