What is Deterritorialization

Handbook of Research on Transmedia Storytelling and Narrative Strategies
In Deleuzian terminology, this concept can be explained as not having a home or a homeland, and described as being on the move, or in the action and not being attached to one place. In context of this article, this concept is used as the deterritorialization of the narrative in correlation with the concept of transmedia.

This chapter describes how technology, progressing rapidly, and especially computer technology has become an indispensable detail in daily life. The act of playing games starting to become virtual has emerged as a progress. In these early years, when the line between place and space has started to become thinner and people began to recognize the lines of flight between the real world and the virtual world, the movie “Tron” made an attempt to explain this possibility of transitivity. 28 years after the first movie, the sequel “Tron Legacy” emphasizes that this possibility still exists. The individual, in this sea of possibilities, comes and goes between place and space and becomes distant to their temporal context, digitalized and goes through deterritorialization. The narrative of the fictional world, the game world in this fictional world, the real world and the game field in the real world will be discussed in terms of transmedia, and some assumptions will be put forward through people and therefore, the deterritorialization of the media.
