Book Description

Reimagining Communication: Experience explores the embodied and experiential aspects of media forms across a variety of contemporary platforms, uses, content variations, audiences, and professional roles.

A diverse body of contributions offer a broad range of perspectives on memory, embodiment, time, and more. The volume is organized to reflect a pedagogical approach of carefully laddered and sequenced topics, which supports meaningful, project-based learning in addition to a course’s traditional writing requirements. As the field of Communication Studies has been continuously growing and reaching new horizons, this volume presents a survey of the foundational theoretical and methodological approaches that continue to shape the discipline, synthesizing the complex relationship of communication to forms of experience in a uniquely accessible and engaging way.

This is an essential introductory text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and scholars of communication, media, and interactive technologies, with an interdisciplinary focus and an emphasis on the integration of new technologies.
