“Gloviczki contributes in important ways to the ongoing debate about the future of journalism, a debate animated by the unprecedented potential for new media technology to revitalize our thinking about—and our commitment to—a more humane world.”*—Theodore L. Glasser, professor emeritus of communication at Stanford University*

“A compelling, provocative, and highly instructive manifesto for new and better ways to practice the art of communication, whether the art of journalism or the art of communication, in everyday life.”*—Gerry Philipsen, professor emeritus of communication at the University of Washington*

“Gloviczki’s book—scaffolded by an intricate grid of theories—offers a personally rooted, poignant, powerful, and accessible exposition of mediated narration’s cultural dimensions, its essential role in helping audiences navigate the complex terrains of school violence, ableism, body politics, drug addiction, and more.”*—Radhika Parameswaran, Herman B. Wells Endowed Professor, The Media School at Indiana University–Bloomington*

“Stunning writing, bold, close to the bone: Gloviczki shows us how to show, not tell.”*—Norman K. Denzin, professor emeritus of communications, Institute of Communications Research, University of Illinois*

“In our troubled times we depend on journalism more than ever. But like many other societal institutions, journalism, too, is challenged to give voice to the variety of our experiences, to go beyond the flatness of portrayals, and, cognizant of its power and its constraints, to encourage society to cherish that narrating differences can unite. /Mediated Narration in the Digital Age /is a thoughtful and insightful reminder of that.”*—Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, professor of Internet governance and regulation at the University of Oxford*

/Mediated Narration in the Digital Age/examines mediated narration from 1991 through 2018. Peter Joseph Gloviczki considers this pivotal period spanning the rise of the World Wide Web through the growth of social media to understand how contemporary media accounts storied everyday life and times of crisis. He uses examples across media culture to show that complicated issues benefit from a critical poststructuralist approach to journalism, which promotes a communitarian ethos of respect, inclusion, and dialogue.

Textual analysis of a wide range of media narratives—from a 2012 YouTube clip outlining a time line of the Sandy Hook school shootings, to coverage of then-newly-discovered footage of President Roosevelt in a wheelchair in 2013, to the /Cincinnati Enquirer/’s 2017 piece “Seven Days of Heroin”—illustrate how theoretical concepts work in practice while explaining the new media environment. In response to the lack of awareness of news as mediated narration, Gloviczki calls for journalists to be aware of their role in meaning-making and the attendant ethical responsibilities. He provides the analysis essential to effective practice that emphasizes the connection between the individual and the community in order to more fully represent the mediated body.

*Peter Joseph Gloviczki*is an associate professor of communication at Coker College. He is the author of /Journalism and Memorialization in the Age of Social Media./
