Shane Denson and Jason Mittell will be speaking at the conference “Thinking Serially: Repetition, Continuation, Adaptation”at The Graduate Center of the CUNY, New York. The conference is organized by the Department of Comparative Literature and will take place April 23 –25, 2015.
Shane Denson will speak about "Ludic Serialities: Levels of Serialization in Digital Games and GamingCommunities."
From the conference website: “This conference asks: how do we understand serials differently from other works (e.g., the serialized novel versus the epic)? How does seriality speak to the act of binging and the notion of deferred satisfaction, the suspension of expectation, and the manipulation of the spectator? What does seriality tell us about re-readings? How do we understand the relationship between seriality and history?”
More information will be posted here shortly.
