Emerald Studies in Media and Communications


Emerald Studies in Media and Communications is edited by series co-editors Laura Robinson, Shelia Cotten, and Jeremy Schulz with series senior editors Deb Aikat, John Baldwin, Tim Hale, Heloisa Pait, Julie Wiest, and Apryl Williams and managing editor Aneka Khilnani. Published by Emerald Insight, the series brings together vibrant research on media, communication, and digital sociology.

Each year, we publish volumes that capitalize on the series’ sponsorship by the Communication, Information Technologies, and Media Sociology Section of the American Sociological Association (CITAMS). We welcome self-nominations from scholars of all disciplines interested in editing a volume on an important aspect of media, communication, digital sociology, or related fields.
