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 critical
engagement with media in a manner closer to how we typically experience
Each day, a different media scholar will present a 30-second to 3-minute
clip accompanied by a 300-350-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.
