With apologies for cross-posting (and some slight immodesty and bias as the editor), I am thrilled to announce publication of a major new collection of television studies scholarship covering global television and featuring leading and emerging television studies scholars from around the world:  The Routledge Companion to Global Television is now available in hardback and ebook versions for your library to acquire. It has been a true pleasure to work with these tremendous scholars on this project.

From the back cover:
Featuring scholarly perspectives from around the globe and drawing on a legacy of television studies, but with an eye toward the future, this authoritative collection examines both the thoroughly global nature of television and the multiple and varied experiences that constitute television in the twenty-first century.

Companion chapters include original essays by some of the leading scholars of television studies as well as emerging voices engaging television on six continents, offering readers a truly global range of perspectives. The volume features multidisciplinary analyses that offer models and guides for the study of global television, with approaches focused on the theories, audiences, content, culture, and institutions of television. A wide array of examples and case studies engage the transforming practices, technologies, systems, and texts constituing television around the world today, providing readers with a contemporary and multi-faceted perspective.

In this volume, editor Shawn Shimpach has brought together an essential guide to understanding television in the world today, how it works and what it means – perfect for students, scholars, and anyone else interested in television, global media studies, and beyond.
