From the printing press to social media platforms, mediated communication has always been reliant on technology. However, information communication technology is, arguably, changing more profoundly and rapidly now than ever before, affected by—and itself affecting—the forms media takes and how it is produced, consumed, and regulated. We see divergence and convergence in media formats, from live blogs to immersive storytelling. Technologically-enabled amateurs and non-human actors, like algorithms, are playing an increasingly important part in media production. Technology is also interacting with how news and media audiences behave, which in turn is prompting changes in how those audiences are measured and their consumption regulated. In this English-language lecture series, Professor Neil Thurman will look at some of the cases and consequences of change in mediated communication in contemporary society and how we can conceptualise what we find.
