While transmediality is a recent concept, it is also a historical practice. This international symposium aims to address this historicity, with particular focus on the long nineteenth century (ca. 1780 –1920), a century that famously saw the birth of the mass media and brought the « frenzy of the visible » (J.-L. Comolli 1980). Tracing the processes, economies, and technologies involved in transmedia practices and the aesthetics of expansion and transgression in the long nineteenth century will allow international experts – from media, cultural, and literary studies along with other disciplines – to spotlight specific configurations in the past and their reconfigurations in our present moment.
