ICYMI: Catching Up to the Moving Image Online
MetadataShow full item record
How do we approach the study of the moving image online? How do we catch up to our video present? How much of online video deserves scrutiny beyond its obvious ephemeral pleasures? When we think of the moving image, we tend to think first of film and television. Perhaps not surprisingly, a number of conceptual rubrics associated with cinema and media studies can be applied to an analysis of the moving image online. When our focus shifts from traditional film and television to the moving image online, we have an opportunity to expand the parameters of screen studies by revealing continuities and ruptures between newer and older forms of media.
