This volume begins with the general assumption that suspense is a major criterion for both an audience's selection and evaluation of entertaining media offerings. This assumption is supported not only by the popularity of suspenseful narratives, but also by the reasons users give for their actual choice of media contents. Despite this, there is no satisfying theory to describe and explain what suspense actually is, how exactly it is caused by films or books, and what kind of effect it has on audiences. This book's main objective is to provide that theory by bringing together scholars from different disciplines who are working on the issue. The editors' goal is to reflect the "state of the art" as much as it is to highlight and encourage further developments in this area. There are two ways of approaching the problem of describing and explaining suspense: an analysis of suspenseful texts or the reception process. Researchers who follow the more text-oriented approach identify the uncertainty of the narrative outcome, the threat or danger for the protagonist, the play with time delay, or other factors as important and necessary for the production of suspense. The more reception-oriented scholar focuses on the cognitive activities of audiences, readers' expectations, the curiosity of onlookers, their emotions, and their relationships with the protagonists. A correspondence between the two seems to be quite difficult, though necessary to determine. Both perspectives are important in order to describe and explain suspense. Thus, the editors utilize the thesis that suspense is an activity of the audience (reader, onlooker, etc.) that is related to specific features and characteristics of the text (books, films, etc.). Their question is: What kind of relation? The answer comes from finding out how, why, and which elements of the text cause effects that are experienced as suspense. Scholars from semiotics, literary criticism, cultural studies, and film theory assess the problem from a text-oriented point of view, dealing primarily with the how and which. Other scholars present the psychological perspective by focusing on the cognitive and emotional processes that underlie viewers' experience of suspense; that is, the reception theory tries to answer the question of why suspenseful texts may be experienced as they are.

Pragmalinguistische Untersuchungen, die gänzlich von kognitiven Dimensionen abstrahieren, verlieren zentrale Aspekte ihres Gegenstandsbereichs aus dem Blick. Zugleich müssen auch in kognitionslinguistischen Ansätzen die soziopragmatischen Prägungen kognitiver Prozesse theoretisch modelliert und empirisch anhand von Sprachgebrauchsdaten untersucht werden. Der Band versammelt grundlagentheoretische und empirische Studien aus verschiedenen pragmatischen Disziplinen wie Textlinguistik, Gesprächslinguistik und Diskurslinguistik zu Gegenständen, die einen gleichermaßen pragmalinguistischen und kognitionslinguistischen Zugang erfordern. Klassische Gegenstände der kognitiven Linguistik wie Metaphern oder Frames werden so in pragmatischer Perspektive als kontextgebundene Ressourcen sprachlichen Handelns greifbar.

The Routledge Handbook of Sport Communication is the only book to offer a fully comprehensive and in-depth survey of the contemporary discipline of sport communication. It explores communication within, through, and for sport in all its theoretical, conceptual, cultural, behavioral, practical and managerial aspects, tracing the contours of this expansive, transdisciplinary and international discipline and demonstrating that there are few aspects of contemporary sport that don't rely on effective communications. Including contributions from leading sport media and communications scholars and professionals from around the world, the book examines emerging (new and social) media, traditional (print, broadcast and screen) media, sociological themes in communication in sport, and management issues, at every level, from the interpersonal to communication within and between sport organisations and global institutions. Taking stock of current research, new ideas and key issues, this book is an essential reference for any advanced student, researcher or practitioner with an interest in sport communication, sport business, sport management, sport marketing, communication theory, journalism, or media studies.

Das Internet ist inzwischen zu einem selbstverstandlichen globalen Medium sozialer Interaktionen und somit Teil unseres In-der-Welt-seins geworden. Die hier vorliegenden Beitrage zur Informationsethik befassen sich mit der Problematik der individuellen und sozialen Lebensgestaltung in einer vernetzten Welt. Das Schlagwort von der digitalen Spaltung (digital divide) steht als Zeichen fur eine nicht zuletzt im Rahmen der Vereinten Nationen gefuhrte Debatte, die weit uber die technische Frage hinaus reicht. Die Ubergange zwischen Informationsethik im Sinne einer ethischen Reflexion uber das Internet und Medienethik im Sinne von ethischen Fragestellungen uber die Massenmedien sind flieaend geworden. Aufgrund der dezentralen Struktur des Internet sowie seiner von breiten Schichten der Bevolkerung benutzten interaktiven Moglichkeiten stellen sich aber in diesem Medium spezifische ethische Fragen, die sich von denen der Massenmedien unterscheiden. "Capurros Buch eroffnet einen Blick in die faszinierende, standig sich verandernde edigitalisierte Weltae, die er unter ethischen Gesichtspunkten zu dechiffrieren versucht. Der Autor ist einerseits sehr prazise mit den neuesten technischen Entwicklungen vertraut, andererseits aber auch mit den philosophisch-ethischen Traditionen. [a] Es ist dem Autor zu danken, daa er sich in der relativ jungen Disziplin der Medienethik in ein Feld vorwagt, das in seiner Vielfalt von ethischer Seite bisher nur wenig bedacht worden ist." Freiburger Zeitschrift fur Philosophie und Theologie. (Franz Steiner 2003)

Presented here are historical and contemporary case studies, analysis, and theoretical perspectives on moving images from different historical periods. Examples are taken from classic Hollywood cinema, the postclassic Hollywood era, classic and modern European cinema, nonfiction and documentary forms in film and television, the new deregulated era of television, and the digital revolution of media. This anthology directs attention to the ways in which different methodologies and theories in film and media studies can supplement one another, rather than being parts of different scientific worlds and models of thought.
