What is a medium? What are the relationships between media? Can the web be considered a medium? The Canada Research Chair is developing an intermedial approach for addressing these questions, all while challenging the traditional definitions of terms such as “media,” “mediation,” etc., in order to avoid adopting an essentialist perspective. One of the key concepts of this line of thought is that of “mediating conjunctures.”
