Convergence Culture

  1. 1. 1 Convergence culture Tom, Ollie and Dan
  2. 2. 2 What is convergence culture? onvergence culture is the idea that media combines together into one, it is the modern development of media in a world that is constantly changing. t is a concept which Henry Jenkins is critical of, he says “there will never be one black box controlling media” enkins believes that it is more complex than just putting everything into ‘one box’, he believes there are 5 main processes involved (see slides 4-9)
  3. 3. 3 History istory teaches us that old media never dies, only delivery technologies. ld media just evolves due to changes in audience and social status. s one medium establishes itself in the “media ecosystem” it will never go away as no single medium ever dominates the market.
  4. 4. 4 The five processes of convergence culture (Henry Jenkins) echnological convergence conomic convergence ocial convergence ultural convergence lobal convergence
  5. 5. 5 Technological convergence hen words images and sounds that can physically be seen heard and touched are transformed into digital pieces of information. t is the theory that different forms of media are coming together to perform similar tasks. he idea that some older forms of media are becoming digitized.
  6. 6. 6 Economic convergence Henry Jenkins claims that Economic integration is the integration of the entertainment industry. An example of this is AOL Time Warner, a converged company that now controls the interests in film, music, games, books and even real estate. As a result trans media exploitation has arisen in branded properties such as Pokémon and harry potter.
  7. 7. 7 Social/organic convergence enkins believes that the social/organic converge process is what happens when people process information themselves/in their head. n example of organic convergence he uses in the text is a school kid watching baseball on television, listen to techno on he stereo, word processing a paper and writing an email to friends.
  8. 8. 8 Cultural convergence ultural convergence defines contact and interaction between two or more countries. t is the expression of new forms of creativity at the intersections of various media technologies, industries and consumers. hen media can be experienced on many different platforms for example films being downloaded, watched on games consoles, watched on TV or in the cinema. ifferent levels of communication that storytellers use individually toi communicate different kinds and levels of narrative information, using each
  9. 9. 9 Global convergence enry Jenkins states that Global convergence is the cultural hybridity that results from the international circulation of media content. For example, Asian popular cinema intensely alters the entertainment coming out of Hollywood. Furthermore, world music has grown due to media convergence on a global scale.
  10. 10. 10 Summary To conclude, media convergence is now at its peak. The ability for any average person to be able to sit in one chair and be able to watch TV, listen to music, social network with friends, research information and view images and video is all down to the media convergence culture especially for example in forms of the internet.
