Abstract

Contributors discuss how growing up in a world saturated with digital media affects the development of young people's individual and social identities.As young people today grow up in a world saturated with digital media, how does it affect their sense of self and others? As they define and redefine their identities through engagements with technology, what are the implications for their experiences as learners, citizens, consumers, and family and community members? This addresses the consequences of digital media use for young people's individual and social identities. The contributors explore how young people use digital media to share ideas and creativity and to participate in networks that are small and large, local and global, intimate and anonymous. They look at the emergence of new genres and forms, from SMS and instant messaging to home pages, blogs, and social networking sites. They discuss such topics as “girl power” online, the generational digital divide, young people and mobile communication, and the appeal of the “digital publics” of MySpace, considering whether these media offer young people genuinely new forms of engagement, interaction, and communication.ContributorsAngela Booker, danah boyd, Kirsten Drotner, Shelley Goldman, Susan C.

Abstract

An exploration of how issues of race and ethnicity play out in a digital media landscape that includes MySpace, post-9/11 politics, MMOGs, Internet music distribution, and the digital divide.It may have been true once that (as the famous cartoon of the 1990s put it) “Nobody knows you're a dog on the Internet,” and that (as an MCI commercial of that era declared) on the Internet there is no race, gender, or infirmity, but today, with the development of web cams, digital photography, cell phone cameras, streaming video, and social networking sites, this notion seems quaintly idealistic. This volume takes up issues of race and ethnicity in the new digital media landscape. The contributors address this topic—still difficult to engage honestly, clearly, empathetically, and with informed understanding in twenty-first century America—with the goal of pushing consideration of a vexing but important subject from margin to center. Learning Race and Ethnicity explores the intersection of race and ethnicity with post 9/11 politics, online hate-speech practices, and digital youth and media cultures. It examines universal access and the racial and ethnic digital divide from the perspective of digital media learning and youth. The chapters treat such subjects as racial identity in the computer-mediated public sphere, minority technology innovators, new methods of music distribution, digital artist Judy Baca's work with youth, Native American digital media literacy, and minority youth technology access and the pervasiveness of online health information.

Abstract

How emergent practices and developments in young people's digital media can result in technological innovation or lead to unintended learning experiences and unanticipated social encounters.Young people's use of digital media may result in various innovations and unexpected outcomes, from the use of videogame technologies to create films to the effect of home digital media on family life. This volume examines the core issues that arise when digital media use results in unintended learning experiences and unanticipated social encounters. The contributors examine the complex mix of emergent practices and developments online and elsewhere that empower young users to function as drivers of technological change, recognizing that these new technologies are embedded in larger social systems, school, family, friends. The chapters consider such topics as (un)equal access across economic, racial, and ethnic lines; media panics and social anxieties; policy and Internet protocols; media literacy; citizenship vs. consumption; creativity and collaboration; digital media and gender equity; shifting notions of temporality; and defining the public/private divide.

Abstract

The difficulties in determining the quality of information on the Internet—in particular, the implications of wide access and questionable credibility for youth and learning.Today we have access to an almost inconceivably vast amount of information, from sources that are increasingly portable, accessible, and interactive. The Internet and the explosion of digital media content have made more information available from more sources to more people than at any other time in human history. This brings an infinite number of opportunities for learning, social connection, and entertainment. But at the same time, the origin of information, its quality, and its veracity are often difficult to assess. This volume addresses the issue of credibility—the objective and subjective components that make information believable—in the contemporary media environment. The contributors look particularly at youth audiences and experiences, considering the implications of wide access and the questionable credibility of information for youth and learning. They discuss such topics as the credibility of health information online, how to teach credibility assessment, and public policy solutions. Much research has been done on credibility and new media, but little of it focuses on users younger than college students. Digital Media, Youth, and Credibility fills this gap in the literature.ContributorsMatthew S. Eastin, Gunther Eysenbach, Brian Hilligoss, Frances Jacobson Harris, R. David Lankes, Soo Young Rieh, S.

Abstract

Die Computeranimation beginnt seit einigen Jahren, neben dem Zeichentrick- und dem Puppentrickfilm das Kino zu erobern. Vollständig auf dem Computer entstandene Filme drängen die klassischen Trickfilmsparten zurück. Doch wie entstehen diese Filme? Dieses Buch gibt Einblicke in ihre Entwicklung und zeigt auf, wie Figuren und Drehorte entstehen, wie Kamera, Licht und Animation auf dem Computer eingesetzt werden. Neben der Inszenierung von computergenerierten Trickfilmen werden darüber hinaus Historie und Entwicklung nachgezeichnet, bekannte Filmbeispiele analysiert, bestehende Theorien über 3-D-Computeranimation vorgestellt und die Stellung dieser neuartigen Gattung im Genre des Trickfilms bestimmt.

Abstract

In der Studie wird die aktuelle Medien- und Rezeptionsforschung - insbesondere im Kontext der Cultural Studies - mit der Geschlechterforschung verknüpft. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Frage, wie sich das Verhältnis zwischen der strukturellen »Macht der Medien« und der Handlungsmacht der Zuschauenden mit Blick auf das Fernsehen neu denken lässt. Der Band leistet damit einen Beitrag zu einer kritischen Fernsehforschung, die sich über die jeweiligen Disziplinengrenzen hinweg für neue methodische und theoretische Zugänge öffnet.

Abstract

Seit jeher werden Medienumbrüche von der Sorge vor »Wirklichkeitsverlusten« begleitet - so auch in den Debatten, die die neuen Medien- und Bildtechnologien betreffen. Doch was verstehen wir eigentlich unter »Wirklichkeit«? Die lässig-postmoderne Auskunft, Wirklichkeit sei ohnehin nur Illusion und Konstruktion, ist sowohl theoretisch als auch (angesichts unserer »virtuellen« Erfahrungen im Cyberspace) praktisch unbefriedigend. Wie können wir also - nach dem Verlust traditioneller Ontologien - noch über Wirklichkeit sprechen? Das Buch verfolgt diese Frage aus historisch-anthropologischer sowie bildungs- und erkenntnistheoretischer Perspektive.

Abstract

This book explores Walter Benjamin, Siegfried Kracauer and Alexander Kluge's analyses of the role that a rejuvenation in the capacity for imagination can play in encouraging us to reconceive the possibilities of the past, the present, and the future outside of the parameters of the status quo. The concept of imagination to which the title of the book refers is not a strictly defined, stable concept, but rather a term which is employed to refer to a capacity that facilitates both an active, creative relationship to one's environment, and a process of mediation between the outside world and one's own experiences and memories. Through a detailed analysis of their engagements with subjects that span a broad range of historical and thematic contexts (including topics as diverse as literature, children's play, film, photography, history, and television) the book charts the extent to which the concept of imagination plays a central role in Benjamin, Kracauer, and Kluge's explorations of a mode of perception and experience which could serve as a catalyst for the creation and sustenance of a desire for a different kind of future.

Abstract

Eine gegenseitige Durchdringung von Zivilgesellschaft und Markt manifestiert sich in der Politisierung des Konsums und der Selbstinszenierung von Unternehmen als sozial verantwortliche Bürger. Dies wirft grundlegende Fragen zur Neubestimmung von Bürgerschaftskonzepten und zur Erweiterung des Handlungsrepertoires von Protestakteuren in spätmodernen Konsumgesellschaften auf. Dabei fungieren (neue) Medien sowohl als Vermittler unternehmerischen Engagements als auch als Plattform für die Ausbildung neuer Protestformen. Der Band liefert einen Beitrag zur aktuellen Diskussion und versammelt Perspektiven von Wissenschaftlern und Praktikern.

Abstract

»Ma'am Captain«, Action Girls und Dritte Geschlechter - die Studie beschäftigt sich mit der Inszenierung von Geschlecht in der populären Kultur am Beispiel von sechs Science-Fiction-Serien. Das hegemoniale Bild heldischer Männlichkeit wird nach wie vor reproduziert, gleichzeitig treten auch neue, weibliche Figurentypen auf. Anhand geschlechtsspezifisch kodierter Themen wie Macht, Autorität, Gewalt, Partnerschaft, Sexualität und Elternschaft werden die narrativen und visuellen Strategien der Geschlechterinszenierung beleuchtet. Die Methodik und die Ergebnisse der Studie sind gut auf die Analyse anderer Film- und Fernsehgenres übertragbar.
