publishing opportunities: asian media

Hallo everybody!
As the deadline approaches in three weeks here is another reminder:

Additional contributions are sought for a collection on global television
formats forthcoming from Routledge Press.

Programming formulae that are exchanged, adapted or cloned for production in
multiple localities worldwide have long been staples of international
television. Few televisual shifts, however, have so shaken the global media
environment as the current explosion of global format circulation. For some,
the global format itself constitutes an alternative model of media
globalization as contemporary increase in flow, trade, "pirate" adaptation
and visibility of global television formats challenge established
understandings and offer new theoretical models for scholars and critics.

When viewed historically, or in conjunction with technological developments,
industrial strategies and textual migrations beyond the boundaries of
nation, schedule, playback media, and viewing conventions, the current
television environment presents substantial and creative challenges for
media studies. Focusing on the global format, the collection features
contemporary scholarship that addresses the complex televisual exchanges of
format texts, styles, industries, regulatory institutions, audiences, and

To complete the volume, we seek essays in the following categories:

*Geographical areas: Essays addressing contemporary or historical formats in
East Asia, Africa, The Arab world, or Europe.

*Beyond reality tv: Essays that engage with less visible global formats such
as sports and news programming (historical or contemporary).

*Institutions/Industries/Audience: Essays that approach the study of
television formats through institutional, technological, or viewership

*Global Television Studies: Studies that focus on style, generic convention
or the multiple contact zones of television as a global textual system.

Please send abstract of 500-900 words (or essay) by Sept. 30 to Tasha Oren
( and Sharon Shahaf ( inquiries,
essays and abstracts are welcome anytime until the deadline.
