About This Course
This is a core module for both specializations.
The course analyses the concept of intermediality / cross-media, considering the exchange and hybridization not only in content, narratives and fictional worlds, but also in terms of languages, narrative techniques and stylistic features among old and new media, such as literature, visual arts, animation, comics, movies, videogames, television and music. The teaching of the theories of intermediality will be accompanied by the presentation of several case studies (such as Pokemon, The Walking Dead, The Lord of the Rings). The course therefore aims to provide students with food for thought and critical tools to think in terms of intermedia, and to learn how to use, mix and reinvent languages and tools for the creation of videogame and animation works by tapping into those endemic to other media.
