Note How does one make sense of YouTube? Through genre analysis and digital media criticism, this book presents an accessible, yet critical introduction for "reading" YouTube. It identifies certain videos by genre and provides a thumbnail textual analysis of the videos. Designed primarily for classroom use, the book develops a conceptual language for students to use as they engage with the complex, interactive texts of YouTube and digital culture more generally. -- Publisher description
