[ecrea] Media and Emotions (special issue of Open Cultural Studies)

Mon Feb 26 07:23:52 GMT 2018

It is with great pleasure that we present the special issue“Media and Emotions. The New Frontiers of Affect in Digital Culture” <>(edited by Toby Miller and myself) that explores the role of the new media for human emotions. Consisting of ten articles, the issue examines the intervention of digitalism into “a whole way of life” (Williams 1960), and studies the effects of virtuality on the human experience of feelings and the ontologies of human emotional selves. The issue offers a myriad of perspectives (from social media studies, to dance studies, to robotic art), and it revisits the idea of affectanalyzed in relation to changing life environments and human emotional interactions the emerge fromthe relationship between new media forms, media-ridden realities, and our responses to new ways of emotional structuring.


With best wishes,
