Technology, media, and journalism are closely related, both in the present time and from a historical perspective. New technologies, however, only develop their specific potential within the cultural and social contexts in which they are created and applied, and through which they are interconnected. Bringing together contributions from international experts in media and communications studies, sociology, and history, this volume not only considers the implementation—the successes and failures—of new media technologies, but also the influence these technologies have had both on the practical demands and internal processes of media companies and on the professional roles, social positions, and self-perceptions of journalists. A thorough, interdisciplinary synthesis covering more than one hundred and fifty years of media in Europe and the United States, this innovative book reveals a continuum of technological, social, and cultural developments across journalistic history.
