Der Band fragt nach dem Verhältnis von Mediatisierungsforschung und dem Kommunikativen Konstruktivismus. Aus verschiedenen soziologischen, medien- und kommunikationswissenschaftlichen Perspektiven wird theoretisch und anhand von empirischen Beispielen diskutiert, ob und wie sich die Mediatisierungsforschung mit Hilfe des Kommunikative Konstruktivismus fundieren und weiterentwickeln lässt oder ob der Kommunikative Konstruktivismus die Mediatisierungsforschung benötigt, um empirisch und theoretisch gehaltvoll zu sein.

Permanently Online, Permanently Connected establishes the conceptual grounds needed for a solid understanding of the permanently online/permanently connected phenomenon, its causes and consequences, and its applied implications. Due to the diffusion of mobile devices, the ways people communicate and interact with each other and use electronic media have changed substantially within a short period of time. This megatrend comes with fundamental challenges to communication, both theoretical and empirical. The book offers a compendium of perspectives and theoretical approaches from leading thinkers in the field to empower communication scholars to develop this research systematically, exhaustively, and quickly. It is essential reading for media and communication scholars and students studying new media, media effects, and communication theory.

Die Rolle der Massenmedien im politischen Prozess demokratischer Staaten ist seit einigen Jahren einem grundlegenden Wandel unterworfen. Presse, Hörfunk und Fernsehen wurden lange Zeit als weitgehend passive Vermittlungsinstanzen wahr genommen, die den Publizitätsinteressen demokratischer Politik in einer primär „dienenden“ Funktion gegenüber treten. Seit den 1990er Jahren werden die Massenmedien auch in den europäischen Demokratien als zunehmend „eigenmächtige“ Akteure und folgenreich institutionalisierter Handlungskontext demokratischer Politikherstellung erkennbar. Manche Autoren sprechen von der Entwicklung regelrechter „Mediendemokratien“. Dieser PVS-Sonderband bietet eine umfassende Bestandsaufnahme der Problemdiagnosen, Zustandsbeschreibungen und Wirkungsanalysen rund um die Mediendemokratie. Die Beiträge bilanzieren den Forschungsstand in einzelnen Bereichen der Politikwissenschaft einerseits und zeigen andererseits Fragestellungen und Perspektiven für künftige Forschungsbemühungen auf.

Mis Understanding Political Participation

The practices of participation and engagement are characterised by complexities and contradictions. All celebratory examples of uses of social media, e.g. in the Arab spring, the Occupy movement or in recent LGBTQ protests, are deeply rooted in human practices. Because of this connection, every case of mediated participation should be perceived as highly contextual and cannot be attributed to one (social) specific media logic, necessitating detailed empirical studies to investigate the different contexts of political and civic engagement. In this volume, the theoretical chapters discuss analytical frameworks that can enrich our understanding of current contexts and practices of mediated participation. The empirical studies explore the implications of the new digital conditions for the ways in which digitally mediated social interactions, practices and environments shape everyday participation, engagement or protest and their subjective as well societal meaning.

"Agency without Actors? New Approaches to collective Action is rethinking a key issue in social theory and research: the question of agency. The history of sociological thought is deeply intertwined with the discourse of human agency as an effect of social relations. In most recent discussions the role of non-humans gains a substantial impact. Consequently the book asks: Are nonhumans active, do they have agency? And if so: how and in what different ways? The volume offers a critical state-of-the-art debate of internationally and nationally leading scholars within Sociology, Social Anthropology and STS on agency (Latour, Law, Michael, Rammert etc.). It fosters the productive exchange of empirical settings and theoretical views by outlining a wide range of novel accounts that link human and non-human agency. It tries to understand social-technical, political and environmental networks as different forms of agency that produce discrete and identifiable entities like humans, animals, technical artifacts. It also asks how different types of (often conflicting) agency and agents actors are distinguished in practice, how they are maintained and how they interfere with each other"--

This handbook on Mediatization of Communication uncovers the interrelation between media changes and changes in culture and society. This is essential to understand contemporary trends and transformations. “Mediatization” characterizes changes in practices, cultures and institutions in media-saturated societies, thus denoting transformations of these societies themselves. This volume offers 31 contributions by leading media and communication scholars from the humanities and social sciences, with different approaches to mediatization of communication. The chapters span from how mediatization meets climate change and contribute to globalization to questions on life and death in mediatized settings. The book deals with mass media as well as communication with networked, digital media. The topic of this volume makes a valuable contribution to the understanding of contemporary processes of social, cultural and political changes. The handbook provides the reader with the most current state of mediatization research.

This open access volume assesses the influence of our changing media environment. Today, there is not one single medium that is the driving force of change. With the spread of various technical communication media such as mobile phones and internet platforms, we are confronted with a media manifold of deep mediatization. But how can we investigate its transformative capability? This book answers this question by taking a non-media-centric perspective, researching the various figurations of collectivities and organizations humans are involved in. The first part of the book outlines a fundamental understanding of the changing media environment of deep mediatization and its transformative capacity. The second part focuses on collectivities and movements: communities in the city, critical social movements, maker, online gaming groups and networked groups of young people. The third part moves institutions and organizations into the foreground, discussing the transformation of journalism, religion, politics, and education, whilst the fourth and final part is dedicated to methodologies and perspectives.
