P 94.65 .U6 J46 2006

“Henry Jenkins … delves beneath the new media hype to uncover the important cultural transformations that are taking place as media converge. …. Jenkins argues that struggles over convergence will define the face of American popular culture. … Sometimes corporate and grassroots efforts reinforce each other, creating closer, more rewarding relations between media producers and consumers.  Sometimes these two forces are at war.” — book jacket

One thought on “Convergence Culture

  1. Convergence culture means to me that the realms of media producers and consumers will merge and come together . Professionally, being apart of a marketing and media industry this will mean that the way in which marketers communicate to consumers will have to change in order to tailor to this changing culture.
