Still ‘Desperately seeking the audience’? Audience making in the age of media convergence (the Lilyhammer experience) 

Authors: Vilde Schanke Sundet

Page Start: 11

 

This article addresses ‘audience making’ in the age of media convergence, when television drama is increasingly produced for both a national and an international audience to be consumed in either linear ‘flow’ or on-demand user modes. It argues that how the television industry wants to see its audience influences how it actually sees it, which, again, impacts both the production of television drama as well as the industry’s evaluation of ‘success’ for this genre. 

 

 

Television drama series and transmedia storytelling in an era of convergence 

Authors: Lothar Mikos

Page Start: 47

 

Based on the analysis of several transmedia outlets of television drama series this article will show how production companies, networks and other TV channels attempt to involve viewers via transmedia storytelling in a fragmented media market with a fragmented audience in creating a 360-degree experience.

‘Orphans of Poetry’: The poetry of childhood and the poetry for children of Robert Graves 

Authors: Michael Joseph

Page Start: 9 

 

‘Orphans of Poetry’ examines poems by Robert Graves in order to argue three related points: that Grave’s ideas about childhood and children’s poetry, which anticipate more contemporary attitudes, were significantly shaped by his harrowing experience in the trenches in World War I; that Graves had an extraordinarily complex idea of nonsense as something larger than reasonableness and believed in its ‘explanatory power’; that his idea of nonsense dovetailed with the notion of poetic truth. 

 

Reflections on teaching poetry 

Authors: Caron Freeborn

Page Start: 35

 

In this article, Freeborn reflects on her practice as poet, her experience as a teacher of literature and creative writing, and her own training, and how these have contributed to her personal approaches to teaching poetry writing in Higher Education. She also examines how these approaches have helped her overcome the acknowledged particular difficulties of teaching both the reading and the writing of poetry.

Affecting and Curating, Feeling the Curatorial
Whitechapel Gallery, London, Thursday January 19 2017

To mark the publication of a two-part issue on affect and curating in the Journal of Curatorial Studies, a special event Affect and Curating, Feeling the Curatorial’ is being held at Whitechapel Gallery on Thursday January 19th 2017.

 

The event will bring together a range of speakers to consider how museums, galleries, art world events and artworks function as sites for the transmission of affects. If 'affect' operates independently from meaning, identity or thought, on the level of pre-conscious physical responses and resonances, how might focusing on it challenge and complicate understandings of curating and curatorial approaches?

 

The panel will consist of Journal of Curatorial Studies co-editors Jennifer Fisher, Helena Reckitt, Lisa Blackman and Nina Wakeford. Together they will be discussing the 'affective turn' in curating and society more broadly.
