The Society of Cinema and Media Studies (North America‚Äôs largest media studies organization) is making a number of panels available online (live stream) this week, and some of these may be of interest to people here. In particular, the one coming up shortly today – Visualizing Media Studies – is a workshop centered on video essays, which are gaining traction as an alternative means of discussing media objects. Particularly given mid0nz‘s recent call for new ways of doing meta, this one might be of interest to some of us here in fandom. Keep in mind that since the conference is being held in Seattle, all panels are US Pacific Time.
