About the Book :-
The Mushroom-like growth of new media technologies is radically challenging traditional media outlets. The proliferation of DVDs, MP3s, the internet, and other technologies has freed the public from what we used to understand as “mass media”. These seismic shifts and ruptures have shaken to their core the theoretical and pedagogical foundations of film and TV studies. The concept of “new media” demands a necessary rethinking of the field. Writing from a range of disciplines and perspectives, the contributors to New Media propose these and conceptual frameworks capable of engaging the numerous facets of emergent digital technology.
