Henry Jenkins on tour in Europe
I’ve just learnt that the one and only one Aca-fan, the specialist of civic media, fan activism, transmedia, new media literacies, fan studies, and comics studies, yes, Henry Jenkins in person, is on 2-months long tour around Europe, with stops in 24 cities and 11 countries. For those of you who are doing research or are active in any of these fields, you probably know of his work, or at least, you read a couple of his excellent blog posts, listened to one of his many conferences or lectures available online, etc. Even if you haven’t read anything from him or see any of his presentation, you probably heard his name. No matter how familar you are with his work, I would definitely recommend that you try to attend at least one of his talks. He published the dates and cities of his tours on his blog.
Edit June 10, 2012:
Finally, I have been able to get the details of Henry Jenkins’ presence in Switzerland.
