1st Global Conference: Transmedia Narratives
full name / name of organization:
Dr. Rob Fisher/ Inter-Disciplinary.Net
1st Global Conference
Tuesday 13th November – Thursday 15th November 2012
Call for Presentations:
The definition of narrative and all its axiomatic facets have been under ever increasing academic scrutiny for decades. However, with rapid increase in technology and the seemingly exponential expansion of modes of communication, the concept of narrative would appear to have also dramatically changed, without a corresponding depth or connected discussion on its transformations. This interdisciplinary conference seeks to begin to begin to redress this situation through a multi-pronged focus on the nature of ‘transmedia narrative’, or the manner in which narrative is transmitted, transformed and translated though the various modes of communication forms currently available.
Presentations could deal with, but are not limited to focal areas and questions such as:
* The diversity of narrative forms and how these relate to the creation of cultural narratives
(Keywords: Transmedia, Convergence, Particpatory, Affinity, ReMix, Hypersocibility, Techologies, Medium, Narrative, Story, Play, Interaction, Emersive, Virtual)
The Steering Group particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed panel proposals, works in progress, performances, literary and visual presentations and practitioner case studies. Papers will also be considered on any related theme. 300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 15th June 2012. All other significant dates please see Details page.
a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract, f) up to 10 keywords
Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using footnotes and any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). Please note that a Book of Abstracts is planned for the end of the year. All accepted abstracts will be included in this publication. We acknowledge receipt and answer to all paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.
