This panel will present information relative to a textbook in “Introduction to Media Psychology” that we are currently writing. We will lead off this panel with David Giles presenting a sample author inquiry form from one of the big publishers with some suggestions for how he would pursue a contract for a “made-up book” including different scenarios, things to watch out for, and things publishers like. Josh Cohen will then talk about the kinds of applied helps that are appropriate for our book, and Mary Myers and I will finish off with an interactive discussion concerning what attendees would like to see in terms of content or instructional aids, including what topics have surfaced lately as our world situation evolves.. Included will be a discussion about what topics are relevant for media psychology compared to other kinds of media courses and how media psychology may be influenced by the major world events now unfolding.
