Media and Communication
A large part of the cultural studies programme is made up of publications in Media and Communication. Driven by digitalisation and Social Media, new research directions are constantly developing in the field of Media and Communication.
Our Literatur und Medien series, edited by Prof. Dr Volker Wehdeking, Prof. Dr Christof Hamann, Prof. Dr Gunter E. Grimm and Prof. Dr Rolf Parr, which presents excellent theses from the Stuttgart Media University (HdM) and the University of Duisburg-Essen, combines literary studies with media studies issues and thus takes the pulse of the times.
kommunikation & kultur, the series of publications by the Institute for Communication History and Applied Cultural Studies at the Free University of Berlin, edited by Prof. Dr Hermann Haarmann and PD Dr. Falko Schmieder, discusses and promotes debates on the theory and history of science on the most diverse aspects of the intertwining of communication and culture.

Literatur und Medien
Edited by Prof. Dr Volker Wehdeking, Prof. Dr Christof Hamann, Prof. Dr Gunter E. Grimm and Prof. Dr Rolf Parr
The connection between literary studies and media studies issues is of current, rapidly increasing relevance. Particularly excellent theses from the Stuttgart Media University (HdM) and the University of Duisburg-Essen link research on international contemporary literature with aspects of intermediality and media change.
Studien zu Literatur und Film der Gegenwart
Edited by Prof. Dr Stefan Neuhaus
The series focuses on what is closest to us today – contemporary literature and film. It includes not only works considered particularly artistic, but also popular reading and film material, texts and films aimed at suspense and entertainment. The films and texts discussed by the works in the series are considered relevant to contemporary literature and film, and thus also to the society and times in which they were created and received.
We wholeheartedly welcome unsolicited manuscripts and book proposals.

In addition to theoretical works on media and communication research, the series includes publications with a high level of practical relevance. The authors examine mass media such as magazines and newspapers, radio, film, television, but also social media and computer games from very different perspectives with links to neighbouring disciplines. They also address current developments and challenges in the media industry, such as streaming, credibility, manipulation and discrimination in (social) media.
