Henry Jenkins is one of the most productive and influential film and media scholars in the world. His books and articles have been major contributions to existing fields of inquiry such as film history (What Made Pistachio Nuts?: Early Sound Comedy and the Vaudeville Aesthetic; Classical Hollywood Comedy), Political Communications (Democracy and New Media) and Children´s Studies (The Children´s Culture Reader). His works have helped to establish new fields such as media ethnography (Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture; Science Fiction Audiences: Dr. Who, Star Trek and their Followers), and game studies (From Barbie to Mortal Kombat: Gender and Computer Games). His 2006 book Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide examines contemporary trends in the entertainment industry, online culture, and audience participation, as well as The Wow Climax and Fans, Gamers, and Bloggers. He has testified about youth and violence before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, about media literacy before the Federal Communications Commission, and about copyright before the Governor´s Board of the World Economic Forum. Henry is currently principal investigator for the New Media Literacies project and is co-authoring a book called Spreadable Media with Joshua Green and Sam Ford, focusing on the ways in which content circulates and how value is ascribed in today's media environment.
