Digitization, multi-platform texts, and audience reception
In my presentation I want to reflect on some of the consequences of digitization for multiplatform media production, the ways in which it affects textual expressions, and how this might have a bearing on changing audience roles. I am going to argue that multiplatform media texts challenge our conceptions of categories such as work, text, program, etc., and, following from that, also challenge our notions of audience activity and engagement.
