Routledge African Media, Culture and Communication Studies


About the Series

This series features innovative and original research on African media, culture and communication from scholars both within and outside of Africa. With Africa still under-represented in media and cultural studies literature, this series provides a much-needed platform for comparative and interdisciplinary research that highlights the perspectives and needs of Africans as consumers and producers.

The series welcomes submissions from established and junior authors of cutting-edge and high-level research on key topics that feature in the news and public debate. To submit proposals, please contact African Studies Editor, Helena Hurd ([email protected]).
