ABOUT IN MEDIA RES
In Media Res is envisioned as an experiment in just one sort of
collaborative, multi-modal scholarship that MediaCommons will aim to
foster. Its primary goal is to provide a forum for more immediate
engagement with media in a manner closer to how we typically experience mediated texts.
Each day, a different media scholar will present a 30-second to
3-minute clip accompanied by a 250-300-word impressionistic response.
The goal is to promote an online dialogue amongst media scholars and
the public about contemporary media scholarship through clips chosen
for either their typicality or a-typicality in demonstrating narrative
strategies, genre formulations, aesthetic choices, representational
practices, institutional approaches, fan engagements, etc.
