Its primary goal is to provide a forum for more immediate critical 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 100-150-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, genreformulations, aesthetic choices, representational practices, institutional approaches, fan engagements, etc.Best,Avi Santo----------------------------------------------------------------------Avi Santo, Ph.D.Assistant Professor3014 Batten Arts & Letters (BAL)Department 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 http://www.flowtv.org
