My new weekly column series
, "Mediated Matters," has gone live at the webzine Sociological Imagination
. Future columns written by Yours Truly
will be posted every Monday and may be expected to fall into two broad categories: 1) columns which contextualize sociological theories and empirical research related to the production, circulation, and consumption of mediated forms, and 2) columns which take particular media objects such as books and movies and use them elucidate particular sociological contributions to knowledge from any subfield.

And in other news, for the first time ever
I'm starting to see my research being cited in peer-reviewed journal articles and scholarly monographs. I feel validated. ^_~ This article on scanlation
by Jeremy Douglass, William Huber, and Lev Manovich references my articles in The International Journal of the Book
and Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics
. Arguably more exciting, though, is finding this book
: Cartoon Cultures: The Globalization of Japanese Popular Media
by Anne Cooper-Chen. She cites me at least seven times and re-delivers the argument in my Publishing Research Quarterly
article. What can I say? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and since that one is hands down my favorite (and my supervisor's as well, incidentally), I know she has excellent taste!
