Ob die Überwachungspraktiken der NSA oder die Geschäftsmodelle von Google, Facebook & Co.: Sie alle basieren auf »Big Data«, der ungeahnten Möglichkeit, riesige Datenmengen wie nie zuvor in der Geschichte zu erheben, zu sammeln und zu analysieren. »Big Data« beschreibt damit nicht nur neuartige wissenschaftliche Datenpraktiken, sondern steht für eine tektonische Verschiebung von Wissen, Medien, Macht und Ökonomie. Im Unterschied zum Medienhype um »Big Data« schafft der Band einen Reflexionsraum zur differenzierten Auseinandersetzung mit dem datenbasierten Medienumbruch der Gegenwart. International führende Theoretiker der Digital Humanities stellen einen fachübergreifenden Theorierahmen zur Verfügung, der es erlaubt, »Big Data« in seiner gesamten sozialen, kulturellen, ökonomischen und politischen Bandbreite zeitdiagnostisch zu thematisieren. Mit Beiträgen von David M. Berry, Jean Burgess, Alexander R. Galloway, Lev Manovich, Richard Rogers, Daniel Rosenberg, Bernard Stiegler, Theo Röhle, Eugene Thacker u.a.m.

Afrika heute – das sind nicht nur Bürgerkriege, Hungerkatastrophen und Krankheiten, sondern auch enormes Wirtschaftswachstum, beispiellose Innovationen und herausragende Persönlichkeiten. Warum aber bekommen wir von diesen Entwicklungen nichts mit? Und wie kann die Afrika-Berichterstattung organisiert werden, um eine realistische Darstellung des Kontinents zu ermöglichen? Das sind die beiden zentralen Fragen, denen Martin Sturmer nachgeht. Ausgehend von Erkenntnissen der Kommunikationswissenschaft zeigt der Autor, welche Faktoren und Akteure das gegenwärtige Afrika-Bild beeinflussen. Anhand einer Medienresonanzanalyse belegt er, dass eine differenzierte Afrika-Berichterstattung möglich ist, und plädiert dafür, dass afrikanische Journalisten selbst über ihre Heimatländer berichten.

Much has been written about the historic nature of the Obama campaign. The multi-year, multi-billion dollar operation elected the nation's first black president, raised and spent more money than any other election effort in history, and built the most sophisticated voter targeting technology ever before used on a national campaign. What is missing from most accounts of the campaign is an understanding of how Obama for America recruited, motivated, developed, and managed its formidable army of 2.2 million volunteers. Unlike previous field campaigns that drew their power from staff, consultants, and paid canvassers, the Obama campaign's capacity came from unpaid local citizens who took responsibility for organizing their own neighborhoods months--and even years--in advance of election day. In so doing, Groundbreakers argues, the campaign engaged citizens in the work of practicing democracy. How did they organize so many volunteers to produce so much valuable work for the campaign? This book describes how. Elizabeth McKenna and Hahrie Han argue that the legacy of Obama for America extends beyond big data and micro-targeting; it also reinvigorated and expanded traditional models of field campaigning. Groundbreakers makes the case that the Obama campaign altered traditional ground games by adopting the principles and practices of community organizing. Drawing on in-depth interviews with OFA field staff and volunteers, this book also argues that a key achievement of the OFA's field organizing was its transformative effect on those who were a part of it. Obama the candidate might have inspired volunteers to join the campaign, but it was the fulfilling relationships that volunteers had with other people--and their deep belief that their work mattered for the work of democracy--that kept them active. Groundbreakers documents how the Obama campaign has inspired a new way of running field campaigns, with lessons for national and international political and civic movements.

Journalism in Context is an accessible introduction to the theory and practice of journalism in a changing world. The book looks at the way in which power flows through media organisations influencing not only what journalists choose to present to their audiences but how they present it and then in turn what their audiences do with it. Using examples from across the world, as well as from her own research, Angela Phillips uses them to explain complex theoretical concepts. She invites readers to consider how news is influenced by the culture from which it emerges, as well as the way it is paid for and how different countries have approached the problem of ensuring that democracy is served by its media, rather than being undermined by it. Journalism has always been an early adopter of new technologies and the most recent changes are examined in the light of a history in which, although platforms keep on changing, journalism always survives. The questions raised here are important for all students of journalism and all those who believe that journalism matters.
