Welcome to MediaCommons Press, an in-development feature of MediaCommons, promoting the digital publication of texts in the field of media studies, ranging from article- to monograph-length.

Our most recent project is the crowd review of a special issue of postmedieval on Comic Medievalisms. We have also recently hosted the peer-to-peer reviews of “Born Digital: Guidance for Donors, Dealers, and Archival Repositories” and “Fit for Purpose: Developing Business Cases for New Services in Research Libraries,” as well as open review of Jason Mittell’s book-in-progress, Complex Television: The Poetics of Contemporary Television Narrative and Aram Sinnreich’s The Piracy Crusade: How the Music Industry’s War on Sharing Destroys Markets and Erodes Civil Liberties.

Previous projects include an open discussion of the Association of American University Press’s report, “Sustaining Scholarly Publishing: New Business Models for University Presses”, as well as an open review of articles for potential inclusion in Shakespeare Quarterly‘s special issue on performance, the open review of the essays proposed for the collection Learning Through Digital Media, a discussion of chapter 6 from Thomas Streeter’s book, The Net Effect: Romanticism, Capitalism, and the Internet, the open review conducted for Shakespeare Quarterly special issue on Shakespeare and new media, Kathleen Fitzpatrick’s Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy, “MediaCommons: Scholarly Publishing in the Age of the Internet” and “CommentPress: New (Social) Structures for New (Networked) Texts.”

Do you have a conference paper, an article, or a longer manuscript that you’d like feedback on? We’re looking for more projects for our public review system. Contact us via email at editors AT mediacommons DOT futureofthebook DOT org.
