Chapters are called for the book Dynamics of mediatization: Understanding cultural and social change.
Mediatization studies examine a wide range of dynamics of media-related transformations. These dynamics vary in form and they have been studied using different conceptual vocabularies. Examples of dynamics are media-related changes in the organization and operations of institutions, shifting power relations, changes in social relationships and interactions, and new ways to explore (self-)representations and to express identities.
Proposals are invited in particular in the following areas:
- Grasping dynamics of mediatization
- Studying dynamics of mediatization in relation to other long-term processes
- Analysing dynamics of mediatization in specific fields and contexts
The volume will be edited by the management team of ECREA’s Temporary Working Group Mediatization.
1000-word proposals for theoretical and/or empirical chapters with a clear focus on socio-cultural changes in relation to media and communication can be sent to Olivier Driessens (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline is 5pm 30 October 2015.
