Lecture/Discussion: Moving Images in the Age of Convergence
Tuesday, October 27, 9:30-11:30am, Noble Lounge

We will discuss the meaning of transmedia, then aim our focus on the burgeoning field of Interactive Documentary (I-Doc). We will interact with some groundbreaking works and discuss the strategies employed. Let's dive deep. Let's dissect the I-Doc and splice it between content and media theory. Let's parse out the tropes at play, and discuss the promises I-Docs, and other new forms of media and methodologies make.
