Journalism and Political Communication Unbound RSS

Journalism and Political Communication Unbound seeks to be a high profile book series that reaches far beyond the academy to an interested public of policy-makers, journalists, public intellectuals, and citizens eager to make sense of contemporary politics and media. Unbound in the series title has multiple meanings: it refers to the unbinding of borders between the fields of communication, political communication, and journalism, as well as related disciplines such as political science, sociology, and science and technology studies; it highlights the ways traditional frameworks for scholarship have disintegrated in the wake of changing digital technologies and new social, political, economic, and cultural dynamics; and it reflects the unbinding of media in a hybrid world of flows across mediums.

We started Unbound with a key goal in mind: a commitment to producing works that are both peer reviewed and public-facing. We embrace a blend of trade, trade/academic, and traditional academic books, with monograph development, promotion, and marketing adaptable to each project. The series actively solicits book length contributions from authors looking to write new works as well as expand upon previously published works including public reports and white papers. We seek to push boundaries of conventional scholarly publishing models, including experiments with open access.
