EMERGINGSERIES is an online platform that analyzes the different narrative forms of digital media.
The project was born in the University of Palermo and includes media and cinema journalists, scholars and professors.
The idea is to study the heterogeneous world of digital media through news, articles, reports from festivals. We are working to create a large archive and recently we have launched the “ES Journal”, the academic Journal in which we will publish the result of our researches.
WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CULTURE AND SOCIETY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PALERMO
