[ecrea] Routledge Advances in Transmedia Studies: New Book Series & Call for Proposals

Wed Nov 07 16:14:14 GMT 2018

*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 /Historicising 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
  * 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 sectors?

  * 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* ((m.freeman /at/ <mailto:(m.freeman /at/>).

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