The course spans 14 lecture weeks, and the teaching will be organized in seminars combined with independent work and regular lectures. Some weeks will be more teaching-intensive than other, while others will be dedicated to individual efforts. The learning activities will be organized around topics and 3-4 specific examples of transmedial communication and stories, which are then investigated through theory, analysis and experiences.
The students will be expected to:
• Be prepared for lectures, based on the time schedule and reading list to be published at the beginning of the course.
• Participate in discussions and events in seminars, actively search for examples and bring these to the table in common discussions.
• Work independently on their short portfolio tasks.
• Actively use the opportunities for supervision from teaching assistants and professors in periods with less organized teaching.
• Be part of groups and take responsibility for the function of the group.
Please be aware that the course demands a high level of participation and group work during classes, and it is not designed for remote studies.
It may be helpful to look up or be aware of culture segments with a high degree of transmediality, and discussions around fan culture in fantasy and science fiction
