The Handbook of Communication History addresses central ideas, social practices, and media of communication as they have developed across time, cultures, and world geographical regions. It attends to both the varieties of communication in world history and the historical investigation of those forms in communication and media studies. The Handbook editors view communication as encompassing patterns, processes, and performances of social interaction, symbolic production, material exchange, institutional formation, social praxis, and discourse. As such, the history of communication cuts across social, cultural, intellectual, political, technological, institutional, and economic history. The volume examines the history of communication history; the history of ideas of communication; the history of communication media; and the history of the field of communication. Readers will explore the history of the object under consideration (relevant practices, media, and ideas), review its manifestations in different regions and cultures (comparative dimensions), and orient toward current thinking and historical research on the topic (current state of the field). As a whole, the volume gathers disparate strands of communication history into one volume, offering an accessible and panoramic view of the development of communication over time and geographical places, and providing a catalyst to further work in communication history.

Bringing together researchers from around the world, this Handbook provides unique examinations of communication in cross-cultural perspective. The studies herein explore the diverse ways in which communication is understood around the world; examine specifically cultural traditions in the study of communication; and highlight the range of ways communication is understood. The Handbook contributors present communication as an academic discipline and as a culturally situated practice. In attending to communication in these ways, the volume serves as an authoritative resource for understanding communication in cross-cultural perspective. Designed at the nexus of various intellectual traditions such as the ethnography of communication, linguistic ethnography, cultural approaches to discourse, and kindred approaches, the handbook employs a general approach which, when used, understands communication in its particular cultural communities, that is, as it is conceived and evaluated by people in specific discursive practices and events.

The Handbook of Communication Ethics serves as a comprehensive guide to the study of communication and ethics. It brings together analyses and applications based on recognized ethical theories as well as those outside the traditional domain of ethics but which engage important questions of power, equality, and justice. The work herein encourages readers to make important connections between matters of social justice and ethical theory. This volume makes an unparalleled contribution to the literature of communication studies, through consolidating knowledge about the multiple relationships between communication and ethics; by systematically treating areas of application; and by introducing explicit and implicit examinations of communication ethics to one another. The Handbook takes an international approach, analyzing diverse cultural contexts and comparative assessments. The chapters in this volume cover a wide range of theoretical perspectives on communication and ethics, including feminist, postmodern and postcolonial; engage with communication contexts such as interpersonal and small group communication, journalism, new media, visual communication, public relations, and marketing; and explore contemporary issues such as democracy, religion, secularism, the environment, trade, law, and economics. The chapters also consider the dialectical tensions between theory and practice; academic and popular discourses; universalism and particularism; the global and the local; and rationality and emotion. An invaluable resource for scholars in communication and related disciplines, the Handbook also serves as a main point of reference in graduate and upper-division undergraduate courses in communication and ethics. It stands as an exceptionally comprehensive resource for the study of communication and ethics.

Die Kommunikationswissenschaft hat sich national unterschiedlich entwickelt, unterliegt aber auch transnationalen Einflüssen. Der Band vergleicht kommunikationswissenschaftliche Forschung in Europa, den USA und exemplarisch den Schwellenländern. Welche Großregionen geben den Ton an? Gilt der Blick in die USA für alle Fachcommunities? Herrschen in der Theoriebildung nationale oder transnationale Referenzgrößen vor? In Bezug auf welche Basistheorien und welche Theorien mittlerer Reichweite? Im Mittelpunkt stehen zwei Forschungsbereiche, die die meisten nationalen Fachgemeinschaften miteinander teilen: die Öffentlichkeits- und die Nutzungsforschung. Welche Ausprägungen haben sie international und wie reagieren sie auf aktuelle Prozesse wie die Globalisierung und die Digitalisierung?

Öffentliche Kommunikation überschreitet, unterläuft und überwindet in zunehmendem Maße nationale Grenzen. Dieser Internationalisierungsprozess ist ein wesentlicher Bestandteil von Globalisierung in ihrer politischen, kulturellen und ökonomischen Dimension. Der Band will das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen Internationalisierung und nationalen Beharrungskräften ausleuchten. Er vereint daher international vergleichende und transnationale Perspektiven auf öffentliche Kommunikation. Das Buch hat einen regionalen Schwerpunkt in der OECD-Welt, enthält aber zugleich kurze Fallstudien zu wichtigen Ländern und Regionen außerhalb der OECD.

Hate Speech ist ein bisher in der Medienwissenschaft vernachlässigter Forschungsgegenstand, dem sowohl eine ausreichende Abgrenzung als auch eine kohärente theoretische Fundierung fehlt. Das Buch schließt diese Lücke und analysiert anhand der Kontroversen um Oriana Fallaci und Thilo Sarrazin, wie Massenmedien zur Bühne für Hate Speech werden und wie sich Argumentationsprozesse hierbei auswirken. Die Untersuchung in den führenden Qualitätszeitungen Deutschlands, Italiens, Spaniens, Großbritanniens und der USA zeigt, dass Hate Speech in den Massenmedien ein rationales Phänomen ist und eine argumentative Auseinandersetzung mit den diskriminierenden Botschaften dazu führt, deren Diskursqualität zu erhöhen und sie kommunikativ zu legitimieren. Die Leistung der Hate Speaker ist es dabei nicht, etwas zuvor Unausgesprochenes oder Unaussprechliches zu thematisieren oder einen diesbezüglichen Konsens herzustellen, sondern die öffentliche Agenda zu bestimmen.
