Multi-channel Poetics paper

To help give an overview of the presentations at Critical Animals check out the conference report, Critical Animals Don’t Chew the Fat, I wrote which is published at ANU’s blog: underthesun.

In the comments section of this post I’ve put the paper I delivered at the program. I put my ideas-in-formation into an XYZ coordiante to try and make the concepts accessible. But I realised as I wrote it that I perhaps confused the issue a bit more. Anyway, there are some interesting points, I hope, and I really look forward to your views.

I’ve also posted the whole paper in the comments.

I’m a Critical Animal

I’m off again but this time to the Newcastle This is Not Art Critical Animals Program. I’m chairing the following session:

Location: Newcastle Regional Library Theatrette

And then presenting the day:

Towards a Poetics of Multi-Channel Storytelling.
Day/Time : Friday 1/10 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Location: Newcastle Regional Library Theatrette
Transmedia storytelling is, simply put, franchises: a movie is followed by a game, then perhaps a comic, website and so on. This paper outlines the poetics being developed for multi-channel storytelling; suggesting narrative schema intended to guide story creation and literary criticism. 30 min paper, follwed by discussion.
With Christy Dena

This will be the first time I present on the core of my research area so I’m really excited. I’m looking forward to getting some feedback on what the hell I’m doing. The paper will be posted up here once done.
