Inaugural call for papers for the Journal of Popular Television
Call for Papers Date:
We are pleased to announce the inaugural call for papers for the Journal of Popular Television, to be published in 2013 by Intellect.
This peer-reviewed journal invites articles on all aspects of popular television, both fictional and non-fictional, from docudramas and sports to news and cultural programming. Published bi-annually, the journal is rooted in the belief that popular television continues to play a major cultural, political and social role, and thus seeks contributions that contextualise programmes, genres and phenomena. Analysis of national television cultures and style are welcomed, but the editors are particularly interested in interdisciplinary, empirical and comparative approaches to shows and developments across national boundaries. Possible topics of interest might include: studies of individual programmes, format trading, comparisons of different broadcast policies, quality television, reality television, television personalities and stars, documentaries, sport, children’s television, comedy, and interviews with creative/industry personnel.
The first volume, launching in early 2013, is entirely open-call. Submission is open now, and articles for consideration for the first volume should be sent by 1st October 2012 at the latest to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. See the Intellect style guide (at http://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/MediaManager/File/Intellect%20style%20guide.pdf) before sending your article.
