Adaptation And Convergence Of Media - 'high' Culture Intermediality Versus Popular Culture Intermediality
|Author||L. Diaz ; M. Dragu ; L. Eilitta Eds.|
The perspective of this book is that intermedia is a gathering of combinatorial possibilities and hybridity leading to heterogeneity and complexity. The volume is not another academic compilation but rather a collection of carefully selected and peer-reviewed articles. Rather than arguing for an impending disappearance of traditional media, the book embraces contemporary plurality of media forms, advocating a more comprehensive approach that includes a proposal for a theory of ‘High’ and ‘Low’ culture intermediality. Many of the authors are creative media practitioners. Their work gives the reader a look at contemporary media landscape.
