It’s not all about you: new per­spec­tives on address research
BuchcoverThe twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry has seen a surge in cross-lin­guis­tic research on forms of address from increas­ing­ly diverse and com­ple­men­tary per­spec­tives. The present edit­ed col­lec­tion is the inau­gur­al vol­ume of Top­ics in Address Research, a series that aims to reflect that grow­ing inter­est. The vol­ume includes an overview, fol­lowed by sev­en­teen chap­ters orga­nized in five sec­tions cov­er­ing new method­olog­i­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal approach­es, vari­a­tion and change, address in dig­i­tal and audio­vi­su­al media, nom­i­nal address, and self- and third-per­son ref­er­ence. This col­lec­tion includes work on Cameroon­ian French, Czech, Dutch, Eng­lish (from the US, UK, Aus­tralia, and Cana­da), Finnish, Ital­ian, Mon­go­lian, Palen­quero Cre­ole, Por­tuguese, Slo­vak, and Span­ish (in its Penin­su­lar and Amer­i­can vari­eties). By pre­sent­ing the work in Eng­lish, the book offers a bridge among researchers in dif­fer­ent lan­guage fam­i­lies. It will be of inter­est to prag­ma­tists, soci­olin­guists, typol­o­gists, and any­one focused on the emer­gence and evo­lu­tion of this cen­tral aspect of ver­bal com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Books and social media: how the dig­i­tal age is shap­ing the print­ed word
BuchcoverSocial media and dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies are trans­form­ing what and how we read. Books and Social Media con­sid­ers the way in which read­ers and writ­ers come togeth­er in dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ties to dis­cov­er and cre­ate new works of fic­tion.
This new way of engag­ing with fic­tion stretch­es the bound­aries of what has been con­sid­ered a book in the past by mov­ing beyond the phys­i­cal or even dig­i­tal­ly bound object to the con­sid­er­a­tion of con­tent, con­tain­ers, and the abil­i­ty to share. Using empir­i­cal data and up-to-date research meth­ods, Miri­am John­son intro­duces the ways in which dig­i­tal­ly social plat­forms give rise to a new type of cit­i­zen author who choos­es to side­step the industry’s gate­keep­ers and share their works direct­ly with inter­est­ed read­ers on social plat­forms. Gen­der and genre, espe­cial­ly, play a key role in devel­op­ing the com­mu­ni­ties in which these authors write. The use of sur­veys, inter­views, and data min­ing brings to the fore issues of gen­der, genre, com­mu­ni­ty, and pow­er, which high­light the push and pull between these writ­ers and the indus­try.
Ques­tion­ing what we always thought we knew about what makes a book and tra­di­tion­al pub­lish­ing chan­nels, this book will be of inter­est to any­one study­ing or research­ing pub­lish­ing, book his­to­ry, print cul­tures, and dig­i­tal and con­tem­po­rary lit­er­a­tures.
