Abstract

Beeinflussen Massenmedien den Gang der internationalen Politik? Alexander Brand gibt hierauf eine differenzierte Antwort, die Medien weder zu Sündenböcken für fehlgeschlagene politische Projekte macht noch deren eigenständige Wirkmächtigkeit abstreitet. Auch widerspricht er einer technologiefixierten Lesart, wie sie bei der Rede vom "CNN-Effekt" oder der "Twitter-Revolution" dominiert. Auf der Basis eines modifizierten konstruktivistischen Ansatzes für die Internationalen Beziehungen erläutert die Studie, wo genau sich Medieneffekte in internationalen politischen Dynamiken niederschlagen - und zeigt, dass dies weder einseitig gerichtet noch mit durchweg erwartbaren Konsequenzen geschieht.

Abstract

Ob "Twitter-Revolution" oder "Cyberdemokratie" - häufig prägen Schlagworte die Debatte zum politischen Potenzial des Internets. Jenseits von Mythisierungen untersucht Marcus Michaelsen die Nutzung neuer Medien durch Opposition und Zivilgesellschaft im Iran - angefangen von den ersten Reformwebseiten über die Blogs von Journalisten und Frauenrechtlerinnen bis hin zu den sozialen Medien der Grünen Bewegung. Durch die Verknüpfung präziser Landeskenntnis mit Theorien der Politik- und Kommunikationswissenschaft entsteht eine ebenso fundierte wie anschauliche Analyse der Leistungen und Grenzen von Internetanwendungen in Prozessen des politischen Wandels.

Abstract

Politische Beteiligung wandelt sich. Der sozialwissenschaftliche Diskurs weist immer wieder auf eine Hinwendung der Bürger_innen zu neuen Formen des Engagements hin, die außerhalb der Einflusskanäle des repräsentativen Systems liegen. Dem Social Web kommt in diesem Prozess eine besondere Bedeutung zu, da es potenziell einen Raum für bürgerschaftliche Bildungsprozesse darstellt. Katharina Witterhold untersucht die dieser Entwicklung zugrunde liegenden Bedingungen am Beispiel politischer Konsumentinnen. Mit dem Blick auf Frauen als Wegbereiterinnen eines neuen Politikstils sowie mit der Entwicklung einer praxeologischen Analyseperspektive auf Alltagspolitik betritt ihre Studie auch theoretisch Neuland.

Abstract

Digital technology already has permeated the physical world. Devices such as smartphones, tablets or wearables and online venues like virtual worlds and social networks have penetrated every part of our lives. The contributions to this volume apply innovative forms of ethnographic research to the digital realm. They examine the emergence of new online communities around Greenlandic news blogs or Malaysian LGBT Facebook groups, the rise of transnational migrant networks facilitated by social media, or the representation of conflicts and the proliferation of ideologies within online spaces.

Abstract

While feminists have long recognised the importance of self-managed, alternative media to transport their messages, to challenge the status quo, and to spin novel social processes, this topic has been an under-researched area. Hence, this book explores the processes of women's and feminist media production in the context of participatory spaces, technology, and cultural citizenship. The collection is composed of theoretical analyses and critical case studies. It highlights contemporary alternative feminist media in general as well as blogs, zines, culture jamming, and street art.

Abstract

By using history and theory of communication as an integrative methodological device, this book reaches out to those properties of totalitarian society which appear to be beyond the grasp of specific disciplines. Furthermore, this functional approach allows to extend the analysis of communicative practices commonly associated with fascist Italy, Nazi Germany and Soviet Union, to other locations (France, United States of America and Great Britain in the 1930s) or historical contexts (post-Soviet developments in Russia or Kyrgyzstan). This, in turn, leads to the revaluation of the very term »totalitarian«: no longer an ideological label or a stock attribute of historical narration, it gets a life of its own, defining a specific constellation of hierarchies, codes and networks within a given society.

Abstract

Grand Theft Auto, Battlefield, Counterstrike – more and more, violence in computer games is becoming the subject of heated discussion. But what emotional experiences does the playful use of virtual violence make possible? Through participato observation in online games and at LAN parties and analyses of interviews, magazines, and videos, Christopher Bareither presents in detail how millions of people can take pleasure from that which would shock others. By refraining from judgmental cliches, this ethnographic study is able to provide a decisive contribution to a debate at the crossroads of popular culture, politics, and the public sphere.

Abstract

High frequency trading, Google ranking, filter bubble – just three topical examples of the power of algorithms. This title presents a collection of contributions that deal with the historical emergence and wide distribution of algorithms that can be found in various aspects of social life today. They focus on the correlations between algorithmic and non-algorithmic actors and their significance for our daily lives and our social relationships and follow up on the mechanisms with which algorithms – products of a specific global access – frame reality while organizing the way how humans thinks about society. The contributions include case studies on social media, advertising and evaluation but also on mobile safety infrastructures, such as drones.
