Why Attend?

– Get to learn more about “the coolest fanbase on Earth” – the “SKAM” fandom.

– Get unique insight into how “SKAM” might teach us a thing or two about the future of interaction between online dramas and audiences.

– Get a fresh perspective on why “SKAM” and so many other Nordic series are popular in other countries.

More Info:

A place to be, a thing to do: Online teen drama and fan culture

Vilde will focus on the tension between the online dramas, such as “SKAM”, and viewers and how these series actively engage with their audience and invite play, debate and reflection in new and creative ways. With “SKAM” being only one of the most recent examples of a Nordic series making big waves worldwide, Vilde will also discuss Nordic values as an international export: Why are people in Brazil and Russia watching these series – and what is the future of this trend?
