Section: Communication and Media
The “global turn” in communications, advances in mobile technologies and ubiquitous digital social networks are changing the world’s media landscapes, creating complex disjunctures between economy, culture, and society at local, national, and transnational levels. The role of traditional mass media—print, radio and television—is transforming, as digital platforms increasingly acquire the attributes of "media" companies.
There is debate worldwide about the sustainability of news and journalism with the rise of platform media, while user-generated content by bloggers, podcasters, and digital activists is gaining currency worldwide, as is the impact of robotics and artificial intelligence on communication systems
Today, researchers find themselves at important junctures in their inquiries that require innovations in concepts, frameworks, methodologies and empirics. Global Perspectives aims to be a forum for scholars from across multiple disciplines and fields, and the Communication and Media Section seeks to publish cutting-edge research on changing media and communication systems globally.
