This Section fosters research emphasising socio-psychological and cognitive-psychological processes at work in the production and consumption of standardised media content, mediated interpersonal communication by mobile phone or chat and interactive media such as computer games and robots. It places considerable emphasis on phenomenological approaches to the media and the role of communication and media in families and households.
