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. Please check it out and add to your RSS feed!

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!

Hey, there's a *lot* of benefit from being essentially the first person to write about a particular topic. And you more or less are - and it's now rather hard to write about manga as it's packaged, published and presented in the West *without* mentioning your work!

Well, you would be the one to know if I'm "more or less" the first to write about this topic. But honestly? I think it's basic descriptive stuff that needs to be out there if there is ever to be any complex, synthetic scholarship--by me or by anyone else.

I'm was trying to lay a foundation that I could build upon, in other words!
