REMINDER - 2018  CALL FOR BOOK PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS: CRITICAL DIGITAL 
AND SOCIAL MEDIA STUDIES

Submission Deadline: Monday 12 February 2017 23:00 BST by e-mail to 
Andrew Lockett (University of Westminster Press Manager) at 
[log in to unmask]
For fullest series details and proposal guidelines see 
https://uwestminsterpress.blog

Critical Digital and Social Media Studies is an established book series 
edited by Christian Fuchs on behalf of the Westminster Institute for 
Advanced Studies and published by the University of Westminster Press 
(UWP). We invite submissions of book proposals that fall into the scope 
of the series.

CALL DETAILS
After the publication of five titles in the series we invite submission 
of book proposals (adhering to the guidelines set out below) as one 
document with one full chapter for books in the range of 35,000-80,000 
words. The books in the series are published online in an open access 
format available online without payment using a Creative Commons licence 
(CC-BY-NC-ND) and simultaneously as affordable paperbacks. We are able 
to publish a number of books in the call without any book processing 
charges thanks to generous support by the University of Westminster that 
covers these fees. Potential authors are welcome to contact the series 
editor outside of the initial time frame of this call for book proposals 
but should note that priority for funding support for suitable projects 
will be given to those proposals meeting the deadline. There is a 
preference for the submission of proposals for books whose writing can 
be finished and that can be submitted to UWP within the next 6-15 
months. In the event of a surplus of strong proposals preference will be 
given to single-authored book proposals over edited volumes.

We welcome submissions of a book outline proposal with (exactly one) 
sample chapter submitted as one single Word or PDF document. We can only 
accept suggestions for books written in English.

TOPICS
Example topics that the book series is interested in include: the 
political economy of digital and social media; digital and informational 
capitalism; digital labour; ideology critique in the age of social 
media; new developments of critical theory in the age of digital and 
social media; critical studies of advertising and consumer culture 
online; critical social media research methods; critical digital and 
social media ethics; working class struggles in the age of social media; 
the relationship of class, gender and race in the context of digital and 
social media; the critical analysis of the implications of big data, 
cloud computing, digital positivism, the Internet of things, predictive 
online analytics, the sharing economy, location- based data and mobile 
media, etc.; the role of classical critical theories for studying 
digital and social media; alternative social media and Internet 
platforms; the public sphere in the age of digital media; the critical 
study of the Internet economy; critical perspectives on digital 
democracy; critical case studies of online prosumption; public service 
digital and social media; commons-based digital and social media; 
subjectivity, consciousness, affects, worldviews and moral values in the
