What animates things? How do organic and inorganic things live together in medieval literature and culture? Today thinkers are increasingly drawn to the nature of things in and of themselves, seeking material objects as they stand outside of the parochial, human subject. What can medievalists contribute?

Media Fields Journal invites critical and artistic submissions on the theme of scale.
"Scale" at once denotes a difference in size, scope, or range, and assures us that such differences can be measured and defined. Media and scale have a long, complex, and ever-changing relationship that raises a number of questions, including:
How does the size of a media object inflect its functions?
What are the effects of "scaling" media up (say, to IMAX screens) or down (e.g., to iPods)?
What is a large-scale production? What is a small-scale production?
What is a "human scale"? How can media represent things that are not on a human scale?
Who works "for scale"?
