My article featured in Encyclopedia’s Top 10 list

Last year, I wrote two entries for the Encyclopedia of Major Marketing Strategies (EMMS); one on the BBC‘s ‘Wonderful World’ strategy, and another on HBO‘s ‘Underdog’ strategy.

I have just seen the Title pages of the EMMS and found out that one of the entries I had written was featured as one of the encyclopedia’s Top 10 entries on its ‘Highlights’ page. Quite an honour.

For those interested in this comprehensive academic collective work on marketing, it can be found at Amazon.COM, Amazon.co.UK and Amazon.FR. More information can also be found at the Publisher’s page.

New Photographs of Morocco

Mid-February, I went location scouting for nearly two weeks in Morocco for the upcoming film Nail in the Sky.

Many of the locations were very interesting. In addition to visiting the country’s main places, in the likes of touristic cities Casablanca, Rabat, Agadir, Essaouira and Marrakech, I also visited the south of Morocco, with Guelmim (nicknamed ‘the Door to the Sahara’) and small isolated towns such as Ifrane Atlas-Saghir and Aït Baha, where the locals (berbers) and their traditions were particularly interesting, friendly and authentic.

I, thus, come back with two collections of photographs:

 

Through these photographs, I have tried to capture the “spirit” of people and places in Morocco. I hope that you enjoy them.

SAGE’s ‘Encyclopedia of Social Media and Politics’ published

Some time ago I co-wrote with Mélanie Bourdaa (Université Bordeaux 3) a couple of entries (on ‘Television and Social Media’ and ‘Fanpages’) for the Encyclopedia of Social Media and Politics. I am glad to announce that the three-volume, 1640 pages encyclopedia has just been published by SAGE (in New York).

Encyclopedia Social Media and Politics

To briefly quote the publisher’s description of this very complete and unique collective work, which ‘explores how the rise of social media is altering politics both in the United States and in key moments, movements, and places around the world’:

This three-volume A-to-Z encyclopedia set includes 600 short essays on high-interest topics that explore social media’s impact on politics, such as “Activists and Activism,” “Issues and Social Media,” “Politics and Social Media,” and “Popular Uprisings and Protest.”

A stellar array of world renowned scholars have written entries in a clear and accessible style that invites readers to explore and reflect on the use of social media by political candidates in this country, as well as the use of social media in protests overseas

Unique to this book is a detailed appendix with material unavailable anywhere else tracking and illustrating social media usage by U.S. Senators and Congressmen.
This encyclopedia set is a must-have general, non-technical resource for students and researchers who seek to understand how the changes in social networking through social media are affecting politics, both in the United States and in selected countries or regions around the world.’

For those interested in this brilliant academic collective work, it can be found at Amazon.COM, Amazon.co.UK and Amazon.FR. More information can also be found at the Publisher’s page.
