Race and Mediated Cultures
Edited by Camilla Fojas and Mary BeltrÁn
The Race and Mediated Cultures series elucidates the mutually constitutive relationship between race and mediated cultures in transdisciplinary humanistic scholarship. Media cultures are defined broadly by the series to include screen cultures, social media, surveillance, data algorithms and informatics, networks and institutions, fandom and media activism, propaganda, and other permutations of mediated life. The series seek works that explore, for example, the role of race in the mediated discourses of political cultures and campaigns, race and entertainment industry production cultures, the raced dynamics of social media algorithms, and the role of media in predictive policing.
Race and Mediated Cultures seeks innovative scholarship by emerging and established scholars that moves beyond the study of representation and discipline-specific questions and that engages new think-ing about race. The series publishes books that advance understandings of mediations of race with attention to other axes of identity such as ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and citizenship. It creates a new venue in which the various disciplines with a stake in these conversations—including but not limited to film and television studies, critical ethnic studies, indigenous studies, critical mixed race studies, queer studies, American studies, cultural studies, digital media studies, activism and advocacy studies, postcolonial studies, critical theory, and sociology—can engage in productive dialogue.
