Reframing the Relations of Media, Knowledge, and Innovation in Society

Edited By Hubert Knoblauch, Mark D. Jacobs and René Tuma

It is the premise of this volume that the rising importance of creativity in modern culture is related to dramatic changes in communication. In the last decades we have witnessed a revolutionary change in the ways we interact with one another. This transformation of the structure of communication is one of the most decisive aspects of the creativity of culture. The full aim of this volume therefore is to explore the resulting transformation in the relations of culture, creativity, and communication.
