This series engages scholarship in mediated storytelling: be it the traditional book or television program, the performed oral narrative, or the emerging media platform. Interdisciplinary in scope, this series looks at the myriad theoretical and practical approaches to the story, broadly defined. From the audience member-turned creator to new narrative, this series explores what storytelling means in the twenty-first century. We are looking for book proposals for this series.
We are looking for book proposals to be published in 2018 and 2019. Edited collections as well as books by single author(s) are welcomed.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact Kathleen M. Ryan atkathleen.ryan@colorado.edu and Deborah A. Macey at deborahmacey@gmail.com
