About the Series
Parks and Kumar film and media studies ; Ouellette communication studies ; Hall, et al. Volkmer is a handbook that addresses the diverse methodological approaches that reflect the multidisciplinarity of the field. Because the study of the global television industry remained largely nascent until the early s, and draws upon a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds and perspectives, handbooks and associated reference works were slow to emerge even as important work pertinent to understanding the industry was being published.
However, the field is now sufficiently established that there are very useful edited collections with contributions from a substantial number of well-known scholars who populate the field. These handbooks tend to reflect the disciplinary roots and perspectives of their editors, even as individual scholars from vastly different disciplines share interest in particular subjects.
