Special Journal Issue on TV Narrative

On October 17, 2006 by Christy

The latest issue of The Velvet Light Trap (Number 58, Fall 2006), spotlights film and TV narrative. There is a wonderful selection of papers with one by Jason Mittell:

  • Keating, Patrick. Emotional Curves and Linear Narratives
  • Newman, Michael Z. From Beats to Arcs: Toward a Poetics of Television Narrative
  • Mittell, Jason. Narrative Complexity in Contemporary American Television
  • Kerins, Mark. Narration in the Cinema of Digital Sound
  • Lavik, Erlend. Narrative Structure in The Sixth Sense: A New Twist in “Twist Movies”?
  • Cameron, Allan. Contingency, Order, and the Modular Narrative: 21 Grams and Irreversible

You can only access the journal through an institution subscription though. But if you can, it will be worth it.
