Sprache und Kommunikation im technischen Zeitalter

Wieviel Internet (v)erträgt unsere Gesellschaft?

[Language and Communication in the Age of Technology: How Much Technology Can Our Society Bear?]

Ed. by Marx, Konstanze / Schwarz-Friesel, Monika

Series:Age of Access? Grundfragen der Informationsgesellschaft 2

    • Constant developments in information technologies make it necessary to take a detailed look at the subject of ‘Information and Society’.
    • It is addressed to both scientists and practitioners, and so offers a new comprehensive review of the topic in both theory and practice.

    Aims and Scope

    The Internet has not only transformed our verbal communication but has also changed all methods of recording, transmitting, and managing information. The subject of this volume is the interaction between technological development and communicative practice, as well as its socio-cognitive dynamics. This anthology, which contains contributions by experts in the fields of social psychology, communication studies, and linguistics, undertakes a critical discussion of interaction in the age of technology. In doing so, it makes an important contribution to scientific discourse about processes of convergence between technology, culture, and society, using the example of the Internet.

    Supplementary Information

    Die Begriffe ‚Informationsgesellschaft' und ‚Age of Access' suggerieren die problemlose Zugänglichkeit von Information. Auch das deutsche Grundgesetz fordert dies für alle Bürger. Doch Information ist in der Realität in vielerlei Hinsicht unzugänglich - physisch, wirtschaftlich, intellektuell, sprachlich, politisch, technisch. Diese neue Buchreihe bringt Wissenschaftler und Praktiker zusammen, um die verschiedenen Dimensionen der Unzugänglichkeit auszuloten sowie Prinzipien und Techniken ihrer praktischen und gesellschaftlichen Überwindung aufzuzeigen.
