Abstract

This article considers Henry Jenkins' Convergence Culture as a sociological argument about the tendencies in contemporary culture and argues that it generalizes from a small pool of evidence, considering arguments that would lead to very different conclusion with other demographics. From there, the author raises broader questions about how the study of convergence phenomena can take account of the multiple forces of stratification in contemporary societies and global flows, and thereby reach a more grounded appreciation of the ‘politics’ of convergence.
