COMM 415 - Media Marathoning

Media marathoning, or what the popular press refers to as binge-watching, can be loosely defined as consuming multiple, related mediated texts in a condensed time. This course addresses media marathoning of books, film, and television from both a textual perspective and an audience perspective, seeking answers to these two primary questions: What textual features make some stories more marathonable than others? What motivates readers and viewers to marathon their chosen stories?
