From Charles Dickens and the Star Wars epic, to The Sopranos, Orange is the New Black, and the Serial podcast, seriality’s iteration of installments, gaps, sequences, and seasons has drawn audiences into storyworlds both vast and intimate. “The New Seriality Studies” looks at the past, present, and future of serial storytelling across media, periods, and disciplines. Three panels explore periodicals, novels, television, comics, film, and music in light of the cross-genre play of seriality’s formal, spatial, temporal, material, and social effects. The closing roundtable, moderated by Sharon Marcus (Columbia), features discussion with A.O. Scott (film critic, The New York Times), Julie Snyder(co-creator and executive producer, the Serial podcast), and Lev Grossman(book critic, TIME, and author of the Magicians trilogy).

Goodlad (Illinois), Linda Hughes (Texas Christian), Amy King(St. John’s), Rob King (Columbia), Kathleen Loock (Freie University, Berlin),Sharon Marcus (Columbia), Helena Michie (Rice), Sean O’Sullivan (Ohio State), James Braxton Peterson (Lehigh), Michael Szalay (UC Irvine), Robyn Warhol (Ohio State).
