Transforming Magazines: Rethinking the Medium in the Digital Age
This book is a vital contribution to the development of Magazine Studies. It shows the urgent need for industry and academia to jointly find solutions for the challenges faced by magazines as they transition to digital formats. The spirit of magazines is to create communities and interconnections between human beings, and the global appeal of this subject matter is shown in contributions from 19 authors from four continents and 10 different countries. The book disseminates fresh research into a wide variety of periodical types, and will appeal to communication and journalism scholars, but also to historians, digital media and visual studies researchers. Magazine professionals will also find significant insights into practice that will deepen their understanding and sharpen their craft.
