Social Dynamics 2.0

Social Dynamics 2.0


herausgegeben von Nadja-Christina Schneider und Bettina Gräf, mit Beiträgen von Nadja-Christina Schneider, Bettina Gräf und Saskia Schäfer


Mediated forms of communication increasingly influence the social relations and different spheres of life in the regions of South Asia, Southeast Asia and in the Arab-speaking region. In order to understand the profound social and political changes that go hand in hand with these medialisation processes, an independent and systematic media perspective needs to be generated from within the disciplinary framework of Area and Islamic Studies. This volume has a strong focus on the internet and on the diversity of internet-based communication in the three regions mentioned above. Furthermore, it stresses the need for a new cross-media approach that goes beyond the analysis of single media and helps to understand the transnational and local dynamics of an increasing media convergence.


Der Band basiert auf dem von Nadja-Christina Schneider und Bettina Gräf organisierten Workshop "Zeit für Medialisierung. Medien und transkulturelle Kommunikation in den Islam- und Regionalwissenschaften", der am 8. - 10. April 2010 an der BGSMCS und dem Institut für Asien- und Afrikawissenschaften der HU zu Berlin stattfand.
