The past 20 years have seen the rise of the once-humble television series to new heights of popular success and critical estimation. Given this rise, this book asks if and how contemporary scripted television and web series can be read as a form of literature. While Jason Mittel and others have made a convincing case that complex contemporary TV series constitute a unique art form and should be described on their own terms, there can be equally little doubt that TV series are closely related to various forms of literature, most obviously perhaps drama and the novel, but also, arguably, poetry.

updated: 
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 9:50am
The Global South journal
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

This special issue of The Global South asks how the rise and persistent relevance of radio has shaped and been shaped by the cultures of the Global South over the past century and more. What art forms, social practices, political movements, and linguistic effects emerged through the radio speakers of the Global South? How have creators and consumers harnessed this medium and its expressive possibilities? What roles has radio played in the broader cultural histories of the Global South? Here, the “Global South” is used as a flexible descriptor that names not only nations and lands of the southern hemisphere, but other regions radically affected by the pressures of imperialism, globalization, and unequal development.
