Public Lecture by Will Brooker: Batman: 76 Years as a Transmedia Text
Since 1940, one year after his inception, Batman has occupied multiple media texts: from 1943 onwards he has also existed across multiple media forms. This talk takes us through 76 years of Batman as a cross-platform cultural icon, tracing his journey from comics through newspaper strips and film serials to television, movies and video games. It argues that these different Batmen exist in a dialogue, rather than a simple process of adaptation, and explores the way in which they continue to inform each other, right up to the Arkham video games, the Gotham TV show and the forthcoming Batman v Superman blockbuster.
Will Brooker is Professor of Film and Cultural Studies and Head of the Film and Television Department at Kingston University, London. Professor Brooker's work primarily studies popular cinema within its cultural context, situating it historically and in relation to surrounding forms such as literature, comic books, video games, television and journalism.
Professor Will Brooker's public lecture is presented by the School of Culture and Communication at The University of Melbourne with the School of Communication and Creative Arts at Deakin University.
