Lost: (re)garder l'île

Lost: Watching (over) the island
Edited by Claire Cornillon and Sarah Hatchuel

Ce numéro ouvert, qui accueillera la recherche en marche sur Lost, explorera une philosophie immanente à la série, la fin controversée de l’œuvre, ou bien encore la tension qu’elle construit entre illusion et réalité. Les articles pourront également se focaliser sur un épisode de la série en particulier, afin de l’éclairer à travers des approches croisées.

La Sérialité en question(s)

Edited by Florent Favard and Hélène Machinal

This issue gathers critical analyses focusing on seriality in contemporary television series from the 1980s to today. In its first part, it addresses the notion of narrative complexity put forth by Jason Mittell and explores some of the questions that remains, when it comes to the typologies classifying multiple hybrid formats that emerged over the last decades, or the necessary definition of the most recent evolutions brought by SVoD platforms. It then focuses on spaces and networks, especially in order to analyze narrative weaving (Breda) in television series adapted from novels. The third part of this issue questions the limitations of narratological analyses, by using semio-pragmatics, by picturing television series as complex systems, or by focusing on their intermediality, in order to draw new leads to explore these fluid and evolving objects.
