Flows of Reading: Engaging with Texts Erin Reilly, Ritesh Mehta, Henry Jenkins
Flows of Reading: Engaging with Texts develops an expansive concept of transmedial reading and writing while simultaneously adopting a transmedial form. Conceived as a kind of living workbook and including more than 200 videos, images and other media, the project encourages reflection on how reading matters in everyday life by crafting a series of exercises and activities for teens and their teachers. The book ranges across a wide sweep of texts, including animation, graffiti, remix, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Moby Dick and draws from the ongoing work at the New Media Literacies Project. It serves as a companion effort to the print book Reading in a Participatory Culture published by Teachers College Press and the National Writing Project but ranges far beyond that text.
