Keynote: The Global Impact of Serial Narratives in Languages other than English

Activity: Talk or presentation typesLecture and oral contribution


In this keynote, Pia Majbritt Jensen will explore the global impact of serial narratives in languages other than English, and the perspective needed to understand their transnational circulation. She will do so based on several quantitative and qualitative studies on the transnational audiences of Danish and other European serial narratives in a variety of countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Oceania, carried out in close collaboration with colleagues from around the world. In her talk she will focus on the main findings relating to transnational audience engagement and popularity patterns and their theoretical implications, as well as on the (many) methodological challenges in carrying out such studies. Finally, she will discuss the global media systemic conditions that in the past decade have worked for an increased global circulation of serial narratives in languages other than English, but that in the future are likely to work against this very same circulation.
