What Next? The Episodic and The Serial--MLA in Philadelphia 2017--deadline 10 February

full name / name of organization: 
Katherine Fusco/MLA Philadelphia

This proposed special session on the episodic and the serial invites participants to consider the limitations and opportunities offered by episodic and serial forms across a variety of media (film, comics, novels, the poetic sequence, the podcast, etc.). Papers may consider such issues as narrative, temporality, identity, media ecology, and/or technology and aesthetics. To explore our topic, we will use Pecha Kucha presentations, an appropriate format for our subject!
