Per Israelson: A Genre is an Ecosystem

Wednesday October 18 Sensorium-member and upcoming editor of Sensorium Journal, Per Israelson, visited Linköping to give a lecture on genres as an ecosystems. The lecture built on Israelson’s newly defended thesis, Ecologies of the Imagination: theorizing the participatory aesthetics of the fantastic (Stockholm University, 2017).

Genre theory by among others Tzvetan Todorov was revised with the use of neocybernetic vocabulary in his lecture.

To read more about Israelson’s research, find his article “The Sympoiesis of Superheroes” in the new issue of Sensorium Journal, where he applies a neocybernetic theoertical framework on Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s Black Orchid (1988).
