about this item

This book investigates short form and paratextual media on the web: promos, trailers, gadgets, grassroots video production, remixes, forums, archives, and gaming. Its specific focus is to examine the tension between permanence and obsolescence in the production and experience of paratextual media, which has long been considered only ancillary to a central text. Scholars in the fields of film studies, media studies, and cultural studies assess the increasing influence of paratextual media on our acknowledgement and use of the past and present, on our temporal experience, and, consequently, on our social and political self-positioning through the media.
