    Beschreibung "This work observes representations of telephony in film, examining the shifts occurring in such representations since the advent of mobile telephony. The text will argue that the most important change between past images of land-line telephony and new images of mobile telephony is the shift from impotence to agency. Where once the land-line telephone caused narrative impotence in which a character was unable to affect the outcome of events occurring on the other end of their telephonic connection, new representations of mobile telephony provide agency for the user to accomplish this and other tasks. In addition, it will be theorized that future cinematic characters will inherently possess greater agency than their past counterparts thanks to the mobile phones they will be expected to carry."
