The Media and the Mundane

Communication Across Media in Everyday Life
Redaktör(er): Kjetil Sandvik, Anne Mette Thorhauge, Bjarki Valtysson

This book provides a variety of cases and theoretical insights that touch upon communication across media in everyday life. The cases favour user perspectives and are focused on coordinating mundane activities on smartphones, the role played by apps when exercising, the use of self-organised Facebook groups for civic participation, the role various cross-media communication patterns play in the everyday practices of bereaved parents, the framing and use of digitized cultural heritage, and the political everyday life appropriations of users on social media. While the cases are empirically grounded, the theoretical insights provide different frameworks for understanding cross-mediated communication patterns and space of agency in everyday contexts.
