Abstract

In this note of commentary, I want briefly to reflect on how questions concerning aesthetics variously figure, lie just below the surface or are simply ignored across the increasingly diverse academic approaches to investigating media. This is in a situation in which the array of activities and practices under the heading 'media' is undergoing steady expansion, as is the spectrum of ideas, approaches and objectives informing study. Better cross-connection, first of all between studies variously addressing aesthetic issues and then between these and the many approaches currently placing them as marginal could, it is argued, be a productive intellectual development, bringing increased understanding of the relations between media forms, social feeling and social imagination.
