Vermittlungskulturen im Wandel

Brief – E-Mail – SMS

Joachim Höflich and Julian Gebhardt

Bis zur Erfindung des Telegraphen war der Brief nahezu das einzige Medium, um über Distanzen hinweg mit anderen in Kontakt zu treten oder Beziehungen aufrecht zu erhalten. Mit der E-Mail und dem Short Message Service sind weitere Medien der schriftlichen Kommunikation hinzu gekommen, die den Brief ergänzen – oder auch ersetzten. In diesem Band erfolgt nun eine erste Bestandsaufnahme der Forschung über den damit verbundenen Wandel von Vermittlungskulturen mit Beiträgen in- und ausländischer Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen.

Mobile Kommunikation

Perspektiven und Forschungsfelder

Joachim Höflich and Julian Gebhardt

Innerhalb kürzester Zeit ist das Mobiltelefon als Ausdruck umfassender Entwicklungen der Mediatisierung, Mobilität und Individualisierung zu einem festen, ja sogar als unentbehrlich empfundenen Bestandteil der Alltagskommunikation geworden. Die damit verbundenen kommunikativen, sozialen und gesellschaftlichen Wandlungsprozesse zu untersuchen ist die genuine Aufgabe einer integrativen Kommunikationswissenschaft. In diesem Sinne beschäftigen sich in diesem Band renommierte in- und ausländische Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen aus verschiedenen Perspektiven mit der Mobilkommunikation und präsentieren Ergebnisse ihrer Forschungsarbeit.

This book discusses the personal and social lives of e-actors interacting within the socio-technical structures of the evolving broadband society by exploring the different ways in which individuals, social groups, institutions, operators, manufactures, policy makers, designers and other parties contribute to human communication and social interaction in contemporary media societies. The volume covers four theoretical and empirical areas of research: the conceptual perspectives of e-actors, the emergence of new forms of agency, subjectivity, and mediated interpersonal communication, the everyday life experiences of e-actors, and finally the shaping policies and regulations in the broadband society.

This highly topical book deals with the new frontiers of digital television addressing the challenges it faces as a result of the upsurge of new and converging digital technologies. In a world which has developed online interactivity and new roles for its users, a new scenario of the domestic sphere is emerging where television has lost its dominance within audiovisual products to the Internet, videogames, tablets, mobile phones, and more. Contemporary digital television is thus a field where different platforms, languages and formats compete in order to become the dominant standard for the future. In this new TV ecosystem audiences are negotiating their identities and are implementing practices of use which are redesigning the entire processes for TV production and consumption.
