Refresh for the History of Communication Series

Jane Rhodes and Lisa Parks are delighted to build on and invigorate the University of Illinois Press’ History of Communication series, renamed The History of Media and Communication. The books in the series will emphasize technology and infrastructure, the politics of social differences and intersectionality, environmental issues, globalization, and labor as they relate to media and communication. Our ambition is to publish monographs and collections that demonstrate innovative historiographic practices and engage with underexplored archives, sources, sites, voices, and experiences. We encourage greater attention to transnational, postcolonial, and decolonial studies through an historical lens. The series will publish research by scholars in media and communication studies whose work also engages with other fields such as gender and ethnic studies, science and technology studies, environmental studies, and global studies. The goal is to develop original, rigorous, and path breaking books that bring forth the complex pasts of media and communication and that link to contemporary life and near futures.
