Thematic issue: Pop Culture and Audience Reception in a Transnational Context

Of all modes of cultural exchange and diffusion in the last century, pop culture has been among the most dominant, lucrative, and influential in our daily lives. Films, television, music, video games, podcasts, comic books and graphic novels, genre fiction and other categories of pop culture production are constantly transferred and flow between countries and audiences.  At the same time, worldbuilding and storytelling increasingly extend across media platforms (transmedia), which draws in new international communities of users and audiences. But audience reception and the uses of a particular pop culture product can vary enormously across cultures.
