I’m gratified that references to my 1998 essay, ‘What Is “New Media”‘, are increasingly appearing in academic papers. Examples:
- Study on Communication Ethics Relationship based on New Media Environment. by Zhi Li of Zhejiang University and Yueming Ge of Zhejiang Fashion Institute of Technology in China,
- Convergence of Communications Media and Devolution of Digital Liberary by Dr. M. Nawaz Khan of the Department of Mass Communication at Rajiv Gandhi University in India.
- Personalização no jornalismo on-line: Uma análise de conteúdo dos principais jornais (‘Personalization in online journalism: A content analysis of the major newspapers’) by Valdenise Schmitt and Gregorio Varvakis of the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brasil.
That essay was a prelude to the Individuated Media essays I’ve now been writing for academic conferences in Barcelona, Doha, and Rome.
