Student work, take a look!

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2014! We know you might not all have had the chance to see your fellow students work from the Video Storytelling class, so here is a link to a web site created by your class mates. http://who-is-y.com/ These videos are some examples of a the great work you all created while here. We know you will do so much more in the future. Congratulations again!

(note: the videos are currently locked because the students are working to see if they can be published with other sources first. So, please enjoy the site for now, we will update with a password ASAP. At least you have an idea of what you can look forward to!) 🙂

MediaCommons Scholarly Publishing Network

The Institute for the Future of the Book (if:book) yesterday introduced a new electronic scholarly publishing project focused on media studies. Dubbed MediaCommons, the project is described as “a wide-ranging scholarly network … in which folks working in media studies can write, publish, review, and discuss, in forms ranging from the blog to the monograph, from the purely textual to the multi-mediated, with all manner of degrees in between.”

Among the possible “nodes” in this network will be electronic monographs, casebooks, journals, reference works, and forums. The announcement with more details — including the structural and intellectual reasons behind if:book’s choice of media studies for this scholarly publishing project — is at: http://www.futureofthebook.org/blog/archives/2006/07/introducing_mediacommons_or_ti.html
