Arthemis Presents: Jason Mittell “Continuity Within Gaps: Seriality in Contemporary Film and T

As part of their speaker series, Arthemis presents Jason Mittell (Middlebury College) “Continuity Within Gaps: Seriality in Contemporary Film and Television”

Friday, October 30th at 4pm in room EV 1.605

“Our contemporary media landscape might be called the era of heightened seriality. In this talk, Professor Jason Mittell explores how serial storytelling has pervaded both film and television narrative, considering what formal elements define contemporary seriality, and how seriality is forged by industrial and viewing practices. By understanding the centrality of seriality within contemporary film and television, Mittell argues we can see serial practices as extending even beyond narratives, structuring how we think of various elements of media today, including authorship, fandom, and branding.”
