I am pleased to announce the appearance of

Mashup Cultures
Sonvilla-Weiss, Stefan (Ed.)
1st Edition., 2010, 256 p. 41 illus., Softcover
ISBN: 978-3-7091-0095-0

This volume brings together cutting-edge thinkers and scholars (Henry Jenkins, Mizuku Ito, David Gauntlett) together with young researchers and students, proposing a colourful spectrum of media-theoretical, -practical and -educational approaches to current creative practices and techniques of production and consumption on and off the web. Along with the exploration of some of the emerging social media concepts, the book unveils some of the key drivers leading to participatory engagement of the User.

Mashup Cultures presents a broader view of the effects and consequences of current remix practices and the recombination of existing digital cultural content. The complexity of this book, which appears on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the international MA study program ePedagogy Design – Visual Knowledge Building, also by necessity seeks to familiarize the reader with a profound glossary and vocabulary of Web 2.0 cultural techniques.
