My Colleagues and I at the University of East Anglia are putting together a special edition of Loading… journal on the Kingdom Hearts franchise as a transmedia phenomenon. The issue is based on an expansion of papers we gave at a panel at the DiGRA conference at Ritsumeikan university in Kyoto last year. But we are looking for additional articles to complement those we already have in order to attempt to address as wide a group of topics as possible through the lens of this important franchise. Our ambition is that this could become an important repository of research and theorising on this game series and the topic of transmedia production and fandom.

This special issue of The Projector seeks submissions focused on contemporary community media as activist and aesthetic practices. In 2005, Kevin Howley described community media as “popular and strategic interventions into contemporary media culture committed to the democratization of media structures, forms, and practices.” In revisiting this definition 15 years later, the holistic aim of this special issue is to interrogate shifts in various community media making environments brought about in the past decade.
A popular site such as ShortList https://www.shortlist.com/ offers lists of what it presents (without qualification) as the best movies of a decade or genre and the best shows to watch on streaming services. The site was first launched in 2010 as an adjunct to Shortlist, the free British weekly magazine designed for young professional men. After its print edition ended in 2018, shortlist.com ostensibly became a venue no longer aimed at white, upwardly mobile (British) men. Today, it presents itself as providing a “new way of ordering your world and helping you find the best of everything [in] entertainment, tech, style, home, health & fitness and food.”

In a brief survey of four 2016 A Midsummer Night’s Dream productions, Katherine Brokaw remarked that, this is, “perhaps of all Shakespeare’s plays, the one that most tempts radical and experimental interpretation. It is at once familiar and other” (Shakespeare Bulletin 35.1, 2017, pp. 148-156). Indeed, A Midsummer Night’s Dream has often been interpreted as a benevolent, cheerful story with airy, glittering fairies, well-meaning mechanicals, and lush natural settings, ending with a vision of natural harmony and social order.

The promise of the internet was a promise of connection. Networked technologies would erase the physical and cultural space that separated us. Digital communications would unite us like never before.
