Metaization - the circulate from a primary cognitive, referential or communicative point to the next one on which first-level phenomena self-reflexively turn into gadgets of mirrored image, reference and conversation of their personal correct - is in truth a standard function not just of human notion and language but in addition of the humanities and media often. notwithstanding, examine into this factor has up to now predominantly focussed on literature, the place a hugely differentiated, albeit strictly monomedial severe toolbox exists. Metareference throughout Media remedies this onesidedness and closes the distance among literature and different media via offering a transmedial framework for analysing metaphenomena. The essays go beyond the present suggestion of metafiction, pinpoint examples of metareference in hitherto overlooked components, speak about the potential for metaization of person media or genres from a media-comparative point of view, and discover significant (historical) types and capabilities to boot features of the improvement of metaization in cultural historical past. Stemming from assorted disciplinary and methodological backgrounds, the participants suggest new and sophisticated options and types and canopy a large variety of media together with fiction, drama, poetry, comics, images, movie, laptop video games, classical in addition to well known song, portray, and structure.

Müller-Zettelmann 2000). So, why add yet another term to this babel of terminology? I would like to give the following answers.

Nöth et al. 2008: 16, who, owing to a very broad concept of self-referentiality which even allows for nonintentional self-reference, also attribute a salient potential for self-referentiality to the emotive, sender-centred function). 23 From the point of view of a not merely semiotic but also communicative approach (see below) and also with an eye to the media, in which effects are usually created on purpose, I would like to maintain the notion of an intentional or at least a non-accidental element in the regular description of self-reference (see also below, sec.

It thus permits us to distinguish between terms and concepts that for better or worse have traditionally been used indiscriminately, in particular, ‘self-reference’, ‘self-reflection’ and collocations beginning with ‘meta-’ while indicating a close relation between the various phenomena that have already been designated as ‘meta-’ in a plethora of disciplines. 18 For a more detailed discussion of the position of ‘metareference’ in the context of related terms and self-reference in particular see Wolf 2001 and 2007b.
