In Media Res is envisioned as an experiment in just one sort ofcollaborative, multi-modal scholarship that MediaCommons will aim tofoster. 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
