Summary:
'Transmitted Wounds' explores the ways media technology shapes the the social life of trauma both clinically and culturally. Through a series of case studies - from the radiocasts of the Eichmann trial to virtual reality therapy for PTSD - Pinchevski offers a bold thesis about the deep association of media and trauma: media bears witness to the human failure to bear witness, making the traumatic technologically transmissible and reproducible.
