Are these media new ?

Under the editorship of Eric Alloi and Isabelle Raynauld

[la version française suit]

The 6th issue of Post-Scriptum.org is concerned with the concepts and
expressions that constitute the foundation of new media as a field of study.
If the current lexical profusion (new media, multimedia, digital media,
interactive media, etc.) attests to the diversity of possible approaches
when faced with combinations of information technology and arts such as
literature, cinema and other hybrid forms, what critical point of view are
we able to bring to an artistic practice that is still embryonic?
