Henry Jenkins



Ok, I promise this is my last attempt.

I had no idea who henry jenkins was, but when I read on wikipedia:

One of Jenkins' earlier arguments was that the boundary between text and reader has broken down, not merely in the way the reader "constructs" the text (see deconstructionism), but in the growth of fan cultures. These could be seen by how "fan genres grew out of openings or excesses within the text that were built on and stretched, and that it was not as if fans and texts were autonomous from each another; fans created their own, new texts, but elements within the originating text defined, to some degree, what they could do."

I thought it was obvious?

I wish I could work out how to put "invisible ____" on the pic though :)
