This journal aims at accompanying the research work resulting from the "Narrations sérielles et transmédialité" ("Serial and Transmedia Narrations") project pursued between 2012 and 2014 within the Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Comparatistes (Research Center EA 172, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle-Paris 3), in collaboration with the Université de la Rochelle and the University of Amsterdam. This multidisciplinary project is devoted to the study of serial and transmedia narrations and of fictionnal universes, which can be found in various media. It aims at attempting a definition of these complex objects and at considering the notions of "narration" and "fiction" in this context, as well as placing them back into their environment and analysing the way in which they were received. The journal presents information about the project itself but also announces events linked to our field of study. It besides features bibliograhies and reviews about publications or events revolving around the problematics we are interested in, to create a database and a network of scholars working on these questions.
