•Moves beyond notions of the individual to focus on how authorship is collaborative, contested, and networked, examining cultures of authorship and the practicalities of how it works
•Draws on the cutting–edge research of scholars and practitioners whose work has produced significant new insights into the field
•Examines a wide range of media, including television, social media, radio, videogames, transmedia, music, and comic books
•Offers an impressive global focus, including pieces on Mexican music, amateur film production in Nairobi slums, tele–serial production in Kinshasa, Hong Kong film, and the marketing of Bollywood
