The Rise of Transtexts Published This Week!

I haven’t been very vocal about it on social media (apart from the occasional update on this blog), but I am very happy and very proud of the release of “The Rise of Transtexts: Challenges and Opportunities” this week in the US, and the following one in the rest of the world.
Seeing what was originally an idea that I had for a study day proposal at my university (entitled.. well.. ‘The Rise of Transtexts: Challenge and Opportunity’), turn into a vision, a project and then a book is quite something.
My thanks go to many, including Denzell Richards, for his advice while this was still a study day proposal, then to Melanie Bourdaa, who accepted my offer to join this book project rather early on, to Henry Jenkins and Keith Johnson for the precious advice and obviously to all our brilliant contributors from three different continents; America, Europe and Oceania:, listed alphabetically here:

•    Paul Booth: DePaul University
•    Aaron Delwiche: University of Washington
•    Toby Miller: UC Riverside / Murdoch University
•    Sam Ford: Western Kentucky University
•    Jennifer Jacobs Henderson: Trinity University
•    Matt Hills: Aberystwyth University
•    Henry Jenkins: University of Southern California
•    Simone Knox: University of Reading
•    Hélène Laurichesse: ESAV / Université Toulouse II
•    Geoffrey Long: professional, book series editor for MIT
•    Denzell Richards: University of East Anglia
•    Louisa Ellen Stein: Middlebury College

Finally, my thanks to Routledge, of course, for believing in this book and in this concept of Transtexts, and publishing the book.

My apologies for not writing a new entry in this blog for so long… I’ve been busy with finishing the book (and working on other projects… more soon)

 

I am proud to announce that The Rise of Transtexts, which I have been working on for three years (and with Mélanie for nearly as long), based on an eponymous study day proposal I had prepared for my university in late 2012, is now finished, and now has an official cover, which I am happy to formally present here!

‘The Rise of Transtexts’ Released Next Year!

The book I have been working on, which I am editing (along with Mélanie Bourdaa) at Routledge in New York, will be released next year!

Based on my research and on a proposal I had intially conceived for a study day a few years earlier, bringing forward a new way to talk about Transmedia – with the concept of Transtexts – a necessary evolution to have a broader view (and not strictly industry-bound anymore), the book unites experts from around the world to provide a comprehensive and multidisciplinary study of this key communication/marketing and media-based process and strategy.

The book’s official page at Routledge (which belongs to Taylor & Francis) can be found here:

The book is also present (and available as soon as November 2016) on all online bookstores (and in physical ones, too), including on Amazon:
