The European media landscape is changing so quickly that critics and scholars can barely keep pace with new developments. On the cusp of the latest media innovations, Convergence and Fragmentation brings together specialists from the humanities and social sciences in fifteen countries to analyze the technological, economic, and political trends sweeping Europe. The diverse group of contributors also assesses the effectiveness of models used to explain the changing media environment in this authoritative collection.

About the Author:

Peter Ludes is professor of mass communication at the International University Bremen, Germany. He is the author ofIntroduction to Media Studies.

Review:

“‘Convergence’ and ‘fragmentation’ are the two key forces driving the dynamics of the traditional and new media around the world. This book provides a scholarly yet eminently readable analysis of how these apparently contradictory forces are challenging public policy, citizenship, cultural identities, and globalization in the context of a rapidly changing European media scenario.”

(Keval J. Kumar, Intenational School of Business and Media, India)

“How to explain the interdependence of the technological innovations, market developments, economic, political, and cultural networks connecting the diverse information societies in Europe? The concepts and models offered in this excellently edited volume open up a transdisciplinary debate on the multi-cultural processes of decay and emergence of European unity in diversity in the context of globalizing Europe.”

(Stefan Kramer, University of Constance, Germany)

Convergence and Fragmentation greatly enhances our understanding of the wide range of emerging media governances in Europe from the perspective of cultural diversity and public responsibility.”

(Dr. Luo Qing, Communication University of China)
