Die neue Ausgabe der Zeitschrift für Medien- und Kulturforschung, 9/1 (2018), ist erschienen.

The idea of the »Mediocene« advocated in the contributions of this issue serves as a complement and a corrective to the model of the »Anthropocene« that has been so remarkably developed and successful in recent years. The idea of the »Anthropocene« starts from geological stratigraphy and taxonomy and assumes that the impact of specifically human interventions in the global habitat has grown in scale.
