Abstract (in English): 

New media writing is often conceptualised in terms of the relationship between human and computers, a process Katherine Hayles calls intermediation (Hayles 2008). However critical writing on new media writing has not necessarily made a strong link between intermediation and interculturality. Issues of globalisation, cosmopolitanism and cross-cultural exchange have not been as widely addressed as the technological features of new media work, though they are extremely relevant to it. Here I bring recent theories of globalisation and cosmopolitanism together with the concept of human and computer intermediation through the notion of a "posthuman cosmopolitanism".
