The multidisciplinary series Studies in Intermediality comprises monographs and essay collections that explore dynamic relations between media, that is, complex processes of medial exchange, transformation, interaction, or interplay. The series highlights the fact that the field of Intermediality Studies has become increasingly variegated and that it advances overlapping, yet distinct theories of intermediality, transmediality, multimodality, and adaptation. These theories acknowledge an extensive range of relationships established among various media and investigate how more general conceptualizations of mediality emerge from ever-diversifying mediascapes, which incorporate media that have persisted for centuries as well as new formats (digital or otherwise) that continue to evolve.

The peer-reviewed volumes of Studies in Intermediality, which have been appearing since 2006, critically assess the internationally far-reaching and innovative scope of Intermediality Studies and related fields.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.
