Reviews provided by Syndetics


A Companion to New Media Dynamics provides nearly three dozen scholarly essays organized around notions of change applied to contemporary media forms. Neither the introduction nor the collection as a whole reveal a shared definition of new media (other than the notion of "postbroadcast" media). Likewise, the scope and focus vary considerably among the essays, which are divided into three large categories, and then again into nine subcategories. The first category, "Approaches and Antecedents," is the most cohesive of the three, and perhaps for this reason is not broken up into subsections. It consists of eight excellent reviews of a series of topics ranging from digital humanities to the economics of new media. The next two categories, "Issues and Identities" and "Forms, Platforms, and Practices," are less even in quality and coherence. Themes of change, evolution, prognosis, and expectation tie together the overall theme of "dynamism," yet the large number of essays, uneven quality, and sheer length of the volume (500 pages, counting the index) hinder the emergence of a unified framework for new media studies. Recommended for new media scholars and faculty, but probably not suitable for use as an introduction. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate and research collections. H. Lowood Stanford University
