5 Lessons of YouTube: Published Here and There

March 3, 2009

My article has been recently published in two places: Cinema Journal, and a new digital publication, The International Journal of Learning and Media. In both cases, I’ve been working with the editors to begin to construct methods to “publish” academic writing about YouTube through templates that better mimic the freedom, interactivity, and multimodal environments of the digital about which I write. I’ll be continuing these pursuits over the summer with a variety of helpful interlocutors and institutions, including, I hope, people at MediaCommons and Vectors. While the dreams and visions for more conducive homes for scholarly writing about video may be easy in coming, it’s been important to see how much harder they are to build, this primarily a matter of institutional support (no small thing in our world of shrinking everythings). Make sure to check out Dr. Strangelove’s multiple forms of participation in this brave new endeavor:
