71 Ludwig Jäger Epistemology of Disruptions Thoughts on the Operative Logic of Media Semantics 1 Semantics of Media and the Logic of Transcriptions In recent times, the different disciplines of cultural studies have paid growing attention to the phenomenon that media intermedially refer to each other, that they intermedially allude to themselves in recursive loops—in other words that they consistently make their scriptures into the beginning point of resemanti- zations, of reformulations and of transcriptions. In Aesthetics and History of Art terms like

Epistemologies of Rehearsal Crow Indianist Reflections on Reenactment as Research Practice PETRA TJITSKE KALSHOVEN A: »Scholars often don’t acknowledge that exchange has taken place [amongst different Native American tribes in the past], or that an individual simply may decide to do something differ- ent«. P: »So why can’t you yourself not do something different and create what you feel like creating? Why must you be faith- ful to a specific style?« A: »Because, otherwise, if you do too many things that depart from a style, people won’t be able to

Orientation in Onto-Epistemology Iris van der Tuin This conference asks: what is the potential of new materialism for historical re- search, on the one hand, and, on the other, for teaching and learning history? What are the opportunities and limitations of taking material sources (objects) not as passive remains but as actors of the past, in the present and for the fu- ture? How do objects participate in reflection on history as constructed? I want to answer these and slightly other questions by focusing on methodology, because not only do objects participate in

35 challenging the foundations of self, body and knowledge production Drag as a set of artistic methods that produce a distance to norms and subjection deeply challenges the foundations of epistemology, concept- ions of the self, theories of the body as well as art theory.

This awareness triggers new forms of civic engagement and political action that we term “data activism”. Data activism indicates the range of sociotechnical prac- tices that interrogate the

99 EPISTEMOLOGY IN THE BIBLICAL TRADITION – JUDEAN KNOWLEDGE-BUILDING, SCRIBAL CRAFTSMANSHIP, AND SCRIBAL CULTURE1 JEFFREY L. COOLEY (BOSTON) In this study I have two basic objectives. First, noting the constructivist turn in the study of the Mesopotamian intellectual tradition in recent years, I argue that the Hebrew Bible’s epistemology is also fundamentally scribally oriented. To this end, I briefly note previous approaches to the issue of epistemology in ancient Mesopotamia and Judah and introduce the idea of “epistemic cultures”. Second, I

The Expert as Messenger Media Philosophy and the Epistemology of the Inexact Sciences CHRISTIAN DAYÉ (KLAGENFURT) INTRODUCTION One dimension of knowledge that humanist scholars have been interested in is the production of new knowledge. Most societies have institutional arrangements that provide for individuals or organizations whose primary task is to produce knowledge. Knowledge production in this perspective is an intentional process – the arrangements come with a specific bundle of expectations towards those who take the position and
