Its primary goal is to provide a forum for more immediate criticalengagement with media in a manner closer to how we typically experiencemediated texts.Each day, a different media scholar will present a 30-second to 3-minuteclip accompanied by a 100-150-word impressionistic response. The goal is topromote an online dialogue amongst media scholars and the public aboutcontemporary media scholarship through clips chosen for either theirtypicality or a-typicality in demonstrating narrative strategies, genreformulations, aesthetic choices, representational practices, institutionalapproaches, fan engagements, etc.Best,Avi Santo----------------------------------------------------------------------Avi Santo, Ph.D.Assistant ProfessorDepartment of Communication and Theatre ArtsOld Dominion UniversityNorfolk, Virginia 23529(757) [log in to unmask] Editor: MediaCommons: A Digital Scholarly Networkhttp://mediacommons.futureofthebook.orgCo-Creator: Flow: Television and Media Culture
