ANTHEM GLOBAL MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION STUDIES


Anthem Global Media and Communication Studies aims to advance the understandings of the continuously changing global media and communication environment. The series publishes critical scholarly studies and high-quality edited volumes on key issues and debates in the field (as well as the occasional trade book and the more practical ‘how-to’ guide) on all aspects of media, culture and communication studies. We invite work that examines not only recent phenomena in this field but also studies which theorize the continuities between different technologies, topics, eras and methodologies. Saliently, building on the interdisciplinary strengths of this field, we particularly welcome cutting edge research in and at the intersection of communication and media studies, anthropology, cultural studies, sociology, telecommunications, public policy, migration and diasporic studies, gender studies, transnational politics and international relations.
