[ecrea] First CfP of the new Journal SERIES

Mon Nov 11 21:25:50 GMT 2013


We invite submissions for the first two issues of SERIES, a new
international open access journal on TV serial narratives. The main
focus of the journal is to promote a global discussion forum and an
interdisciplinary exchange among scholars engaged in research into TV
serial narratives. SERIES encourages methodological innovation in
academic research, providing new contributions for a better
understanding of the narrative, technological, economic, social and
cultural impact of TV serial dramas. Articles should deal with
television series, web series and/ or telenovelas. SERIES will publish
each year two issues, a miscellaneous one and a thematic one.
According to that we will welcome submissions on every topic related
to TV serial narratives for our first miscellaneous issue.
