[ecrea] New book announcement - 'Media Convergence: Networked Digital Media in Everyday Life'

Fri Dec 16 00:54:28 GMT 2011

Some colleagues may be interested in this new book by me and Sherman Young,
published today. Introduction and TOC available at the 'download sample
chapter' link here:

"Media are what we do. With this deceptively simple yet particularly
powerful assertion, Meikle and Young successfully benchmark contemporary
media" -- Mark Deuze.

"Meikle and Young's 'Media Convergence' is intelligent, sensible, precise
and timely" -- David Gauntlett.

This book is about how networked digital media are being used to bring
together people and ideas, images and texts, industries and technologies in
new ways - media convergence. The book explores the development of the
Internet, the rise of social media, the global expansion and consolidation
of the major media corporations, and the new opportunities for audiences to
create, remix, collaborate upon and share their own media. The book focuses
on how everyday media - such as Facebook, iTunes, Google and the BBC iPlayer
- can be understood in new ways for the twenty-first century through ideas
of convergence.
