media industries and institutions worldwide. We invite contributions that
range across the full spectrum of media industries, including film,
television, internet, radio, music, publishing, electronic games,
advertising, and mobile communications. Submissions may explore these
industries individually or examine inter-medial relations between
industrial sectors. We encourage both contemporary and historical studies,
and are especially interested in contributions that draw attention to
global and international perspectives, and use innovative methodologies,
imaginative theoretical approaches, and new research directions.
