Laura Robinson, Shelia Cotten, and Jeremy Schulz with Tim Hale and Apryl Williams (associate editors). The series consists of two volumes per year that bring together vibrant research on media and communication.
Communication and Information Technologies Annual
Each year, we publish two volumes that capitalize on the series’ sponsorship by the Communication, Information Technologies, and Media Sociology Section of the American Sociological Association (CITAMS formerly CITASA). The annual volumes are highlighted at the CITAMS business meeting. Timely themes are chosen by the editorial team and guest editors. We welcome self-nominations from scholars
interested in editing a volume on a theme of interest to media
and communication scholars.
