Routledge Transformations in Race and Media

Series Editor: Robin R. Means Coleman, Charlton D. McIlwain

Today, media consumption, production and circulation are more globally connected at the interpersonal, organizational, and geopolitical level than ever before. Greater numbers of media forms exist, representing a notable diversity in form and function, use, and reception. Yesterday’s passive media consumers are increasingly more active media producers.

These transformations in media are significant, and become all the more provocative and important when recognizing that race is shaped in and through media. This series publishes scholarship at the cutting edge of race and media with an aim not only to reflect current research, but to reshape and define future research at their intersection. Books in the series work to develop a greater understanding of how the mediated experiences of racialized beings will continue to transform human experience and relations in every aspect of daily life.
