THE INTELLEC TUAL WORK OF THE 2018 EUROPEAN MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION DOCTORAL SUMMER SCHOOL
The new SuSo book is now available in open access. It's called "Communication as the intersection of the old and the new", and can be downloaded for free here.
"Communication as the intersection of the old and the new" (Bremen: edition lumière) was edited by Maria Francesca Murru, Fausto Colombo, Laura Peja, Simone Tosoni, Richard Kilborn, Risto Kunelius, Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt, Leif Kramp and Nico Carpentier.
This book, the fourteenth in the Researching and Teaching Communication Book Series launched in 2006, stems from the communal intellectual work of the lecturers, the students and the alumni of the 2018 edition of the European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School (SuSo).
The book gives an account of the plurality of research interests and analytical perspectives that the SuSo community values as its main asset. What was especially apparent in this year’s cluster of contributions is that our field of study integrates a wide variety of media technologies (ranging from old to new), demonstrating that contemporary societies are not characterized by the replacement of technologies, but by the always unique articulations, integrations and intersections of old and new. The book is structured in four sections: 1) Theories and Concepts 2) Media and the Construction of Social Reality 3) Mediatizations 4) Media, Health and Sociability
