It was a pretty thrilling moment: during a workshop on collaborative structures in digital scholarship at last week’s Society for Cinema and Media Studies, Jason Mittell, Skyped-in from Germany, launched the MediaCommons Press hosted peer-to-peer review of his book manuscript, Complex TV: The Poetics of Contemporary Television Storytelling, while the rest of the panel and the audience watched.
Jason is releasing the text chapter by chapter, with each new installment due every week or two. The book is under contract to NYU Press, but this draft manuscript and its surrounding discussion will remain on MediaCommons Press, even after the book has been published.
We hope that you will read along as Jason publishes his chapters and contribute to the discussion of this exciting volume!
