The book series Studies in Intermediality, launched in 2006, is devoted to scholarly research in the field of Intermediality Studies and, thus, in the broadest sense, addresses all phenomena involving more than one communicative medium. More specifically, it concerns itself with the wide range of relationships established among the various media and investigates how concepts of a more general character find diversified manifestations and reflections in the different media.
Studies in Intermediality publishes, peer-reviewed, theme-oriented volumes and monographs, documenting and critically assessing the scope, theory, methodology, and the disciplinary and institutional dimensions and prospects of Intermediality Studies on an international scale.

Abstract

This essay provides an analysis of the impact of Netflix on the African screen media sector, by focusing on the Nigerian film industry (Nollywood). It follows the invitation to study Netflix in specific socio-historical and national contexts that several scholars have formulated over the past few years as a way to respond to the complexity of the emerging landscape of internet-distributed television. In order to achieve this objective, the essay focuses on the impact of Netflix’s involvement on the production and distribution of Nigerian content, offering also a few insights on the equally important topic of Netflix’s impact on African audiences. The overall aim is to historicize Netflix’s intervention, detailing the phases of its involvement in Nigeria, its specificities in relation to the intervention of previous local and international actors in the field of content production and distribution (on both streaming and digital television networks), and the controversies its arrival triggers among film professionals in the largest African screen media industry.

¿Qué ocurrió con Filipinas después de “los últimos de Filipinas”? ¿Tiene que ver su proceso de emancipación con el de los países latinoamericanos? ¿Es la modernidad filipina un producto exclusivo de la invasión estadounidense? Este libro colectivo supera agendas nostálgicas y neocoloniales para acercarse desde una multiplicidad de perspectivas a las décadas clave que llevaron a una serie de intelectuales hispanohablantes a imaginarse como nación y reflejarlo en revistas de mujeres, libros de viaje o novelas costumbristas. Los estudios permitirán puntos de comparación con otras literaturas en español así como una profundización en la compleja sociedad filipina del cambio de siglo, con sus salas de jazz, su sufragismo y su independentismo, pero a la vez su defensa del español y el catolicismo.

What happened to the Philippines after 1898? Does its emancipation process have anything to do with that of the Latin American countries? Is Philippine modernity an exclusive product of the US invasion? This edited volume overcomes nostalgic and neo-colonial agendas and forwards multiple-perspectives that critically examine the key decades during which Spanish-speaking intellectuals came to imagine themselves as a nation, as reflected in women’s magazines, travel books or costumbrista fiction. The studies will allow points of comparison with other literatures in Spanish as well as interrogating the complexities in turn-of-the century Philippine society, with its jazz halls, its suffragism and its independence movement, but at the same time its defence of Spanish language and Catholicism.

Abstract

The mini-series Ethos (Bir Başkadır), produced by Netflix Turkey, was a critical and social media sensation, distinguished by its narrative and visual sophistication and its explicit engagement with contemporary social, cultural and political tensions. However, considered in light of larger questions about Netflix and streaming television in general, Ethos also provides a meta-commentary on contradictory aspects of streaming television, particularly those discussed by Ramon Lobato in his book Netflix Nations. In particular, Ethos self-consciously calls attention to ways in which it is simultaneously a local and transnational product. It also invites consideration of the divergent expectations and responses of its varied audiences, both in Turkey and abroad.
