Submission deadline: February the 1st 2010

Niklas Luhmann has created a richly faceted and non deterministic communication sociological theory about media, which opens for analysis adequate to understanding contemporary interactions, organizations and society. In his early main work Social Systems from 1984 Luhmann works with three different types of media, language, distribution media and symbolically gene= ralized communication media, which evolutionary developed makes probable that communicati= on will succeeds. In his late main work Die Gesellschaft der Gesellsc= haft from 1997, as well as in many= other books and articles, Luhmann also works with a general and abstract concept = of media, which not only logically and theoretical explains the three former t= ypes of media, but also can explain many other phenomena in the contemporary society. In this issue we would like to inves= tigate Luhmann and the media.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Discussions of Luhmann's theory of media in comparison with other media theories. * Applied stu= dies using Luhmanns theory of media in regard to: Interaction media, for instance mobile phones, Messenger, e-mail, Mass media, for inst= ance newspapers, TV, radio, WWW, Web 2.0 media, for instance You Tub= e, Wikipedia, Face Book.
   * Studies of the use of Med= ia in Education, Organizations, Art etc.
* Studies of Media in a historical and/or social evolutionary perspective.
