The theme of this year’s Interface conference is transmediation. We invite submissions on a
broad range of subjects that explore questions related to transmediation and the consequences of this process for narrative, representation, and interpretation.
Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:
– Adaption (animated, film, game, graphic, literary, mobile, etc.)
– Critical artistic works
– Cross-platform media franchises
– Digital editions
– Education and transmediation
– Fan art
– New media art
– Transmedia storytelling and other transmedia projects
