“AGENCY, INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, AND THE ECONOMICS OF CREATIVITY”
Seeking panelists whose cultural, critical and historical analyses engage the way convergent and interactive technologies impact medium specificity, the creative economic sector, the public sphere, and political-economic structures and processes. We invite papers that examined convergence and medium specificity within the creative cultural productions of the 20th and 21st century. We are specifically seeking work that focuses on “interactive technologies,” “convergent media,” author-enabling tools, delivery platforms, and the heightened “power” of the fan and amateur cultural producer in relation to: creativity, innovation, artists, audiences, agency and democracy, media mega-mergers, proliferation of creative product, access to distribution, regulatory policies, authoring software, interactivity, alternate endings and the “unfinished” media product, music as spectacle, professional creative labor and the marketplace.
