Christy Admiraal:  "There’s no question that anyone who considers himself or herself part of a fandom will have a different read on a piece of media from someone on the outside—whether it’s due to taking in all supplemental material, shipping a certain pairing, participating in fan theorizing, or some combination thereof—but exactly how does their experience differ from a reader or regular viewer who’s never dived any deeper into non-canonical material?"

Michael Grothaus:  '"Our responsibility is to produce meaningful and playful toys for the kids, and also to help kids take the Star Wars universe and expand it in their own play plans," says [Steve] Evans. Unsurprisingly, in order to achieve that, he and his team work closely with the creative minds behind the franchise.'

"It was like a childhood dream," says Evans.

James Whitbrook:  "When a franchise is around for four decades, it can get impossibly unwieldy to try and grasp its lore — and Star Wars canon is no exception. Here's a guide to the origins of Star Wars Canon, the rise and fall of one of the most prominent Expanded Universes in fiction, and where the saga stands with Disney today."

Rachel Edidin:  "Literary publishing's uneasy relationship with fan fiction has been complicated by the realization that fandom is a huge potential market—one already stocked with both prolific authors and enthusiastic readers.  But how to tap that market is a dilemma that few publishers seem quite prepared to engage."

Mathew Klickstein:  "It all comes down to something called "parasocial interactions" and why we attach so fondly to the warming glow of the screen—any screen."

Henry Jenkins: "Today, I want to highlight yet another effort to encourage civic and political reflections around the superhero genre. In this case, I am focusing on a study and reflection guide recently released by the Fandom Forward Project of the Harry Potter Alliance, to encourage conversations about the representation of gender, disability, and political/civic engagement within the extended Marvel universe."

Gianluca Fiorelli:  "Every brand has a story to tell, and the way users consume stories is changing faster than ever. How will you tell your brand's story across multiple media outlets and platforms, while still giving users an active role in the expansion process?"

Brand experience is already 'transmedia,' but the opportunity with media convergence is to make it a coordinated story-based experience designed for audience participation.  Narrative = cognitive coherence and participation = stakeholders.

Charles Martini's curator insight, May 18, 2013 6:55 AM

Guest Post by Christopher Shamburg… When the Lit Hits the Fan in Teacher Education | immersive media | Scoop.it

Christopher Shamburg: "My first tact is to legitimize the practice of creative appropriation by having the class explore it in literary history—from Shakespeare, who hardly has an original plot, to Chaucer’s use of Homer, to Milton’s ‘missing scenes’ from the Bible, to more contemporary works such as John Gardner’s Grendel and the Geraldine Brooks’ March, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2006."

Another interesting reminder [see yesterday's scoop Da Vinci on Transmedia] that modern storytelling techniques actually have deep cultural roots.
