  • Draws on the cutting-edge research of scholars and practitioners whose work has produced significant new insights into the field
  • Examines a wide range of media, including television, social media, radio, videogames, transmedia, music, and comic books
  • Offers an impressive global focus, including pieces on Mexican music, amateur film production in Nairobi slums, tele-serial production in Kinshasa, Hong Kong film, and the marketing of Bollywood
