CV

Steffen Krämer ist Postdoktorand am Zentrum für Kulturwissenschaftliche Forschung der Universität Konstanz. Er forscht aktuell im Rahmen des Konstanzer Standorts des Forschungsinstituts Gesellschaftlicher Zusammenhalt zu Formen und Normen von Aufmerksamkeitsverweigerung in Sozialen Medien. Promoviert wurde er an der Universität Hamburg im Fach Medienwissenschaften mit einer Arbeit zu diagrammatischen Medien in der Epidemiologie. Frühere wissenschaftliche Stationen umfassen: Lehrbeauftragter an der Universität Lüneburg (2017-2019), Promotionsstipendiat an der Universität Hamburg (2015-2017), wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter an der Universität Cottbus (2013-2015) und künstlerischer Mitarbeiter im Forschungsprojekt Forensic Architecture an der Goldsmiths University London (2012-2014). Neben seinem aktuellen Forschungsschwerpunkt interessiert er sich für Konzepte und Methoden medienwissenschaftlicher Affektforschung. Vor seiner Promotion arbeitete er im Bereich Dokumentar- und Ausstellungsfilm und fokussierte in Forschung und Lehre die Verbindung von Film und Architektur. Er hat Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftskommunikation an der Universität der Künste Berlin und Research Architecture an der Goldsmiths University London studiert.

    ‘Block talk’ on Twitter : Material affordances and communicative norms

    ×

    This article explores the phenomenon of block talk among Germanspeaking Twitter users, based on a subsample of 1700 tweets from a larger corpus of 380,000 block-related tweets collected between February and December 2021. Block talk refers to users publicly mentioning and conversing about the disconnective practice of blocking, which sometimes stimulates a debate about the legitimate use of blocking while at other times providing an outgroup marker for collective positioning. Through the example of block talk we demonstrate that the platform’s curatorial infrastructure for drawing boundaries between public and private is continuously negotiated, and that this negotiation transforms the meaning of some of the default communicative affordances of the platform but also creates its own routines of making public. On the one hand, we show how users adapt conversational devices such as hashtags, screenshots, and @-mentions in the context of block talk. On the other hand, we present examples of Twitter users’ normative reflections about blocking and discuss them as processes of metapragmatic enregisterment. In the final discussion, we propose to integrate processes of routinized adaptation as well as reflexive enregisterment into a joint process of ‘communicative infrastructuring’.

    “Drawing Thresholds That Make Sense” : Diagrammatic Evidence and Urgency in Automatic Outbreak Detection

    ×

    This chapter discusses the aesthetic and affective ordering of evidence practices in the context of epidemiological surveillance. The author focuses on the medium of the signal report that is used by public health agencies and epidemiologists in Germany to retrieve automatic warnings about possible outbreaks. The emergence of such an infrastructure for automatic outbreak detection is historically situated in international developments toward anticipatory biosecurity since the 1990s, both on the level of policy-related concepts and of algorithmic implementation. The chapter compares different designs of signal reports at the national center for disease control in Germany and reconstructs the particular role of control charts for making visible the computational context of early warning signals. Theoretically, signals are conceptualized as objects with evidentiary potential that affectively lure epistemic action. Moreover, tracing the infrastructure and media for signal reporting brings to light differing attitudes toward the evidentiary contribution of automatic recommendation systems and how boundaries between different traditions of expertise are secured.

    Of fillings and feelings : locating affect, attention, and vagueness

    ×

    The article discusses the location of affect in human experience bysituating the concept in relation to attention and to differentdegrees of propositional structuring. By bringing togetherextended mind theories, the affect philosophies of Spinoza andDeleuze, and Whitehead’s theory of intensities, the article seeks tomediate between different strands of affect theory; especiallybetween what has been termed‘non-representational’theories ofaffect and those that couple affective processes with intentionaland perceptual contents. The article will end by discussingvagueness as an important empirical interface in both trajectoriesof theorizing affect.
