Playback is a multi-media blog devoted to timely criticism and new perspectives on media and culture. It serves as a forum in which emerging and established scholars can share analysis, conversation, and experiments in new media such as podcasting, video essays, interactive works, and games. Playback aims to not only spotlight exciting research but also serve as a useful space for exchange on works-in-progress, welcoming reflections on research, writing, and publishing. Playback is run by an editorial board comprised of graduate students in Communication Arts at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. We welcome contributions from scholars from all stages, disciplines, and departments, including those outside UW.
