I am pleased to announce the launch of the following new book series at
Routledge. We have some exciting volumes forthcoming in this series looking
at VR storytelling across media platforms, representational strategies in
an interconnected media culture, cross-platform research methodologies,
transmedia for social change, and beyond. Please see below for a call for

*Routledge Advances in Transmedia Studies*

*Series Editor: Matthew Freeman*

*Aims and Scope:*
This series publishes research monographs and edited collections that sit
at the cutting edge of today's interdisciplinary cross-platform media
landscape, considering emerging transmedia applications in and across
industries, cultures, arts, practices, or research methodologies. The
series is especially interested in research exploring the future
possibilities of an interconnected media landscape that looks beyond the
field of media studies, broadening to include socio-political contexts,
education, experience design, mixed-reality, journalism, the proliferation
of screens, as well as art- and writing-based dimensions to do with the
role of digital platforms.

*Matthew Freeman* is Reader in Multiplatform Media and Co-Director of The
Centre for Media Research at Bath Spa University. He is the author of
Transmedia Storytelling* (2016) and *Industrial Approaches to Media* (2016),
the co-author of *Transmedia Archaeology* (2014), and the co-editor of *Global
Convergence Cultures *(2018) and *The Routledge Companion to Transmedia
Studies* (2018).

*Call For Proposals:*
The series is now accepting proposals for consideration. Topics may
consider - but are lot limited to - the following themes:

   - New approaches to transmedia studies in diverse industrial and
   disciplinary contexts, e.g. transmedia photography, transmedia documentary,
   transmedia heritage, transmedia identity, transmedia education;
   - New approaches to transmedia cultures and non-commercial applications
   of transmediality around the world, e.g. transmedia for social change;
   - New approaches to transmedia arts and writing practices beyond the
   field of media studies;
   - New approaches to transmedia experiential technologies, e.g. virtual
   reality, augmented reality, mobile platforms, apps.

More specific questions of interest might include the following:

   - What are the creative or artistic possibilities for transmediality as
   a concept and practice, particularly in the context of emerging
   - How do different industries approach the practice of transmediality,
   and how do we account for local manifestations of transmediality across
   - What are the social consequences and dimensions of transmediality,
   e.g. how has the normalization of digital and cross-platform circulation
   and interaction affected social life and power relations in society?
   - What are the more diverse values of the 'transmedia' term across
   different disciplines, e.g. what can approaches from participatory theatre
   or psychology contribute to understandings of transmediality?
   - What new research methodologies should be adapted to transmedia
   studies, e.g. how can combined practical and theoretical approaches be
   applied to particular lines of cross-platform research?

Please send initial expressions of interest in proposing a title for this
series to *Matthew Freeman* ([log in to unmask]).

Following this, authors/editors with proposals meeting the aims and scope
for the series will be invited to submit full proposals to Routledge.
