Confessions of an Aca/Fan: Archives: How to Ride a Lion: A Call for a Higher Transmedia Criticism (Part Three) | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

DRC:  If you've been following this series of articles on Henry Jenkins' blog, then you might also want to read Andrea Phillips' thoughts on the subject over at Deus Ex Machinatio.


Andrea Phillips: "I've been mulling over Geoffrey Long's series about transmedia criticism, How to Ride a Lion. I feel like it deserves some thoughtful response, but it's been hard for me to formulate anything that isn't self-aggrandizing (Geoffrey is very flattering toward me indeed) or a sort of nodding-my-head-along that is so empty of content I might as well not say anything at all."

On Transmedia and Education: A Conversation With Robot Heart Stories' Jen Begeal and Inanimate Alice's Laura Fleming (Part Two)

On Transmedia and Education: A Conversation With Robot Heart Stories' Jen Begeal and Inanimate Alice's Laura Fleming (Part Two) | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Some transmedia properties are entirely top-down, deploying fairly conventional models of authorship, despite their deployment across multiple media platforms. Others include strong elements of participatory culture. How central is youth participation in the production and circulation of media to your visions for transmedia education?

In a world before comics shops and subscriptions, my generation would grab whatever was available to us on the spin-racks at the local drug store -- there was not yet a canon (fan or academic) to tell us what we were supposed to read.

Mattia Nicoletti's curator insight, January 19, 2013 3:15 AM

Spreadable media is ispirational for the next tv. It's about spreading contents through media. It's about web 1.0 and 2.0. It's about retro culture. 

 

In this interesting interview what comes out is that storytelling and simplicity is a winner in a spreadable world.

Inventing the Digital Medium: An Interview with Janet Murray (Part One)

Inventing the Digital Medium: An Interview with Janet Murray (Part One) | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Henry Jenkins: "I first met Janet Murray when I arrived at MIT almost 25 years ago. At the time, she was working on her book, Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace, while I was working on Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture. Murray, along with the members of the Narrative Intelligence Reading Group, was an early guide for me to the emerging realm of digital culture and helped to shape my thinking in ways that I will never be able to fully acknowledge."

 

[This is the first in a very interesting series of posts from Henry Jenkins' interview with Janet Murray.  You'll be able to read the full series as all the post are now available @ http://henryjenkins.org/2012/02/an_interview_with_janet_murray.html]
