Assembling a Voice of a Generation

This research extends theory on single serial brands, audiences at the aggregate level, and brand assemblage, disassemblage, and reassemblage. We ask how fans and non-fans of the HBO show GIRLS disassemble the show’s brand narrative across social media platforms. Then, we explore how the brand reassembles through incorporating on-line disassembly.
