Coming soon is the fourth edition of Dr. Carroll's textbook for Writing & Editing for Digital Media, with three new chapters, including one on fake news, misinformation and "alternative facts."
Also new(ish) is my book on the black press and the Negro leagues, A Devil's Bargain, also from Routledge.
Recently published was Dr. Carroll's analysis of slavery and memoria in Savannah, Ga. Read about it here.
In summer 2018, Berry Communication students developed mulltimedia stories on the theme of "Places as Text: The Spaces of Florence, Italy" for VikingFusion. We spent a month in Dante's city "reading" its public spaces as texts for what they can tell us about the city's residents.
And in summer 2019, Dr. Carroll is headed back to Paris to teach Intro to French Film and Travel Writing, with EC USG.

Who were the Cuban X Giants? They were one of the very first professional black baseball teams, playing in New York City around the turn of the 19th century and made up of -- you guessed it -- mostly former Cuban Giants. They were good, winning the 1903 Colored World Championships behind the pitching of the legendary Andrew "Rube" Foster, who won four of the five games.
