Anthem Studies in Emerging Media and Society

An Anthem Press Series

Anthem Studies in Emerging Media and Society invites scholarly enquiries into how transformations and continuities in the digitalised media landscape might (or might not) shape the way we live in, connect with and act for society at large. The series welcomes fresh empirical, interpretative and critical approaches to the diffusion and socio-political impact of emerging media forms, platforms, channels and devices. A major, but not exclusive, focus is on new developments that can influence democratic processes and their lifeblood, the quality of news and information.
