On June 22nd 2015 Barak Obama appeared on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.
Perhaps this was just another interview for the President of the United
States, however, it could arguably represent a symbolic acknowledgment
of podcasting as a culturally prescient media form. In many ways the
podcast remains a curiosity sitting on the periphery of mainstream
forms, an esoteric offshoot of digital culture, in both content and
form, indicative of a hybridised identity. Yet there are a vast range of
podcasts being produced, reflecting hugely diverse thematic, generic and
stylistic approaches. The most popular podcasts command download
audiences in the millions and fervent fandom from listeners who ardently
support the form’s individual and collective pleasures. In theorising
the podcast one might focus on its liminal status between the mechanics
of old and new media, between professional and amateur production
values, and a reliance on mainstream industrial structures whilst
retaining an alternative, even outsider, sensibility. In the present
tumult of online media discourse the podcast could yet be the closest
any new media form has got to realising a digital public sphere. Over
the course of the development of our own film podcast – /The
Cinematologists/(www.cinematologists.com
<http://www.cinematologists.com/>) -  we have engaged in conversations
about the material and theoretical implications of the medium and what
it offers to the expansion of cultural conversation in our own area of
film criticism and analysis. We have become increasingly interested in
how might be conceptualised within wider media & cultural studies
frameworks. Academic study of the podcast is presently somewhat limited
in its scope, being largely focused on its potential usefulness in
pedagogic practice. We believe this to be a pertinent juncture for
research that interrogates the podcast from a range of disciplinary
perspectives, which is the purpose of this edited collection. Therefore,
we are inviting abstracts for contributing chapters within an edited
collection that are representative of, but not limited to, the following
areas:

Podcasts in relationship to other media (old/new).

Podcasting and its differences/similarities to radio.

Podcasting and the democratisation of media production.

Podcast Audiences.

Podcaster as Identity.

Podcast Genres

Formal analysis of Podcasts.

Academia and Podcasting.

Podcasting as a Research Tool.

Podcasting and Identity Politics

Podcast as Transmedia.

Podcast and Research Dissemination

Podcasts and Pedagogy

We have had interest from the media/culture editor from *Palgrave
Macmillan* and indend to submit a final application by September 1,
2016. If you are interested in contributing to a publication in this
area please contact us. We are looking for abstracts, of no more the 250
words, to be submitted by *July 1, 2016*. Abstracts should be submitted
in word format to cinematologists@gmail.com
<mailto:cinematologists@gmail.com> and include a 50 word biography. Any
enquiries can be made to the same address.
