Current Issue

Vol. 13 No. 2 (2020): Standard Issue

This standard issue features six contributions from postgraduate and early career scholars, exploring a breadth of topics around a shared focus on time – the genealogy of sound in digital games, the use of social networking sites by expats, the impact of digital technology on education, the social construction of reality in a mediated world, temporalities in broadcast journalism, and the micro-narrative structures of romantic comedies. The articles present a good mix of empirical research and conceptual development, questioning, expanding, developing and testing theoretical constructs, and proposing innovative tools and approaches for examining their objects of study, thus driving forward theoretical debates in the fields of media, communications, sociology, and technoculture, and the cross-disciplinary spaces in between.
