New editorial team and call for proposals

The series Critical Perspectives on Citizen Media (Routledge) was launched in 2015 in response to exciting developments in academia and activism. Brilliantly led by Mona Baker, Bolette Blaagaard, and Luis Pérez-González, the series has become home to a handful of innovative and interdisciplinary monographs and edited collections, as well as to the ground-breaking Routledge Encyclopedia of Citizen Media

In late 2022, the founding team decided to put an end to its tenure and two new editors joined the project: Fruela Fernández (University of the Balearic Islands) and Julia Rone (CRASSH-University of Cambridge), who had been already involved as authors in the series. Now that the transition process is completed, we —Fruela and Julia— are eager to start working on the project.  

As you can imagine, our motto for this new period is relatively straightforward: “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. CPCM is a solid and well-respected series that has managed to attract attention from like-minded colleagues and readers across translation studies, media studies, politics, and activism, among others. Therefore, we would like to stay true to the spirit of intellectual curiosity and political engagement that made the series possible, while being attentive to emergent issues and developments that are taking place across different fields and parts of the world.

At the moment, we are looking for new book proposals that might be suitable for the series – mainly monographs, but also edited collections that are built around research projects and other forms of collective work. Therefore, we would be extremely happy to hear from you if you have any suitable ideas or relevant proposals. Do not hesitate to get in touch ( / ) – we are glad to engage in a dialogue.
