Video: Playtest at Library of Congress

On November 8, 2018, I presented a pop-up version of the Videographic Frankenstein exhibition at the Library of Congress, in the context of an event called Playtest convened by Tahir Hemphill. This video, shot that day, gives a glimpse of the projects presented there. You’ll find me talking about Videographic Frankenstein shortly before the 1:00 minute mark.

Out Now: Serial Figures and the Evolution of Media in NECSUS

Screen Shot 2018-12-13 at 12.53.38 AM

The latest issue of NECSUS: European Journal of Media Studies has just come out. As always, it is freely accessible as an open-access publication, and it is chock full of articles, reviews, audiovisual essays, and a special section on “Mapping.”

Among the feature articles is an article I co-authored with Ruth Mayer on “Border Crossings: Serial Figures and the Evolution of Media” — a text that outlines some of the topics we covered in our research project within the DFG Research Unit on “Popular Seriality” from 2010 – 2013. This is a slightly revised translation of a text that first appeared in German in Frank Kelleter’s edited collection Populäre Serialität: Narration – Evolution – Distinktion. Zum seriellen Erzählen seit dem 19. Jahrhundert. We are happy to see this text made available in English, and especially happy that it found a home at NECSUS, which is the perfect venue for this transatlantic and interdisciplinary kind of media studies work.
