Before we start discussing transmedia criticism
On Monday I start a course on transmedia criticism as part of the undergraduate education in film studies at the University of Gothenburg. Geoffrey Long’s ‘How to Ride a Lion: A Call for a Higher Transmedia Criticism’, recently re-blogged by Henry Jenkins is a good starting point. There are so many empty promotional, consultant-speak-filled calls for transmedia. But so few really good motivations for why we should care about transmedia fictions.
I will during April and May use my blog to document how my students will help develop better critical approaches to transmedia phenomena.
