The TV series LOST initiated a wide-ranging academic debate, centered
on its narrative and temporal complexity and also addressing the fact
of a massive expansion into other media while consequently
transgressing established genre categories. This transgressions and
expansions pose the essential question about the status of the
original medium television within recent multiple media
configurations. Can LOST be regarded as a symptom of television in the
process of media change? What is the relation between LOST’s
temporality and that of television in general? And how can LOST be
understood as a phenomenon of mediatized worlds?

The editors are members of the project „TV Series as
Reflection and Projection of Change“ which is part of the DFG Priority
Program 1505 „Mediatized Worlds“.
