Complex Television: Come Discuss My Next Book!
I’m happy to announce the pre-publication of my next book has begun. Complex Television: The Poetics of Contemporary Television Narrative has not yet been written, but the writing and publication process has begun on MediaCommons, where I have posted the book proposal for an open “peer-to-peer review” process, running parallel of the tradition peer review process being coordinated by NYU Press. Please visit and offer any feedback!
I’ve blogged about this project many times, both through my writings on television narrative and through previous discussions on “Why a Book?” Last year, I asked this question about publishing, coming to the conclusion that I might make more of an impact publishing something less like a book than following the traditional monograph route. A year later, I’ve come up with a proposal that tries both to end up with a traditional print book (as many scholars told me that without a print copy, it would go unread by many) and a digital edition that takes advantage of that format’s flexibility, multimedia capabilities, and accessibility. The multiplatform idea is very much a work-in-progress, so I encourage people to weigh in about issues of both form and content at MediaCommons.
Thanks in advance…
