"Over the next few decades, immersive media could fundamentally change the ways humans engage in entertainment, communication, and social interaction. The current volume takes a step towards understanding this potential paradigm shift, combining insights from pioneers of the field of ‘presence’ with bright young scholars who bring a new perspective." —Jeremy Bailenson, Stanford University, USA "This book provides an indispensable contribution to scholars in communication studies, computer science and psychology interested in the modes of being present in different media, and offers a careful historical and theoretical framework to the state-of-the-art research."—Anna Spagnolli, University of Padova, Italy "Bracken and Skalski have assembled a collection of works from the world’s foremost authorities on telepresence, a topic that has gone understudied for years. Someone has finally assembled a comprehensive volume on the subject. This book is a must not only for those interested in telepresence, but for mass communication scholars of all kinds."—Kenneth A. Lachan, University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA Immersed in Media highlights the increasing significance of telepresence in the media field. With contributions representing diverse disciplines, this volume delves into the topic through considerations of popular media types and their effects on users. Chapters in the work explain how the experience of presence can be affected by media technologies, including television, video games, film, and the Internet. They also discuss how presence experience mediates or moderates commonly studied media effects, such as enjoyment, persuasion, and aggression. These discussions are accompanied by overviews of the current state of presence research and its future. Ultimately, this work establishes the crucial role of telepresence in gaining a complete understanding of the uses and effects of popular media technologies.

For nearly two decades, Television: Critical Methods and Applications has served as the foremost guide to television studies. Designed for the television studies course in communication and media studies curricula, Television explains in depth how television programs and commercials are made and how they function as producers of meaning. Author Jeremy G. Butler shows the ways in which camera style, lighting, set design, editing, and sound combine to produce meanings that viewers take away from their television experience. He supplies students with a whole toolbox of implements to disassemble television and read between the lines, teaching them to incorporate critical thinking into their own television viewing. The fourth edition builds upon the pedagogy of previous editions to best accommodate current modes of understanding and teaching television. Highlights of the fourth edition include: New chapter and part organization to reflect the current approach to teaching television—with greatly expanded methods and theories chapters. An entirely new chapter on modes of production and their impact on what you see on the screen. Discussions integrated throughout on the latest developments in television’s on-going convergence with other media, such as material on transmedia storytelling and YouTube’s impact on video distribution. Over three hundred printed illustrations, including new and better quality frame grabs of recent television shows and commercials. A companion website featuring color frame grabs, a glossary, flash cards, and editing and sound exercises for students, as well as PowerPoint presentations, sample syllabi and other materials for instructors. Links to online videos that support examples in the text are also provided. With its distinctive approach to examining television, Television is appropriate for courses in television studies, media criticism, and general critical studies.

David Schünemann untersucht die Frage, wie der unwahrscheinliche Erfolg der Entwicklung von Free- und Open-Source-Software (FOSS) zu erklären ist. In einer medien- und techniksoziologischen Betrachtung geht er der These nach, dass FOSS nicht nur eine innovative Art und Weise ist, Software zu entwickeln, sondern dass in FOSS-Projekten eine neuartige Form des Kommunizierens praktiziert wird. Durch eine qualitative Analyse der technischen Plattformen, auf denen FOSS entwickelt wird, zeigt der Autor, dass dort „Masseninteraktionen“ stattfinden. Diese Kommunikationsform verfügt, verglichen mit anderen Typen sozialer Systembildung wie Interaktion, Organisation oder Gesellschaft, über eigene Mechanismen der Reduktion der Unwahrscheinlichkeit der Kommunikation und erweist sich als in besonderem Maße anschlussfähig.​

In this volume, psychologists and communication experts present theory on understanding and predicting how learning occurs through media consumption. As the impact of traditional advertising has declined over the last couple of decades, marketers have scrambled to find other ways to effectively communicate with consumers. Among other approaches, marketers have utilized various forms of product integration. Product integration is mixing a commercial message in with the non-commercial message via TV, movie, video, and other entertainment venues. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in psychology, marketing, communication, advertising, and consumer behavior.
