The relationship between space and communication is becoming more complex. Mediatisation blurs the boundaries between different spaces, as well as between dimensions of space. It also leads to the re-articulation of geographical territories – often (re)producing socio-political values and power struggles. This book departs from the assertion that the changing character of media society calls for a spatial turn in media studies. There are clear signs that such a turn is on its way. But no account has yet been formulated for the full potential of this. Gathering new analyses from leading Nordic media scholars, geographers and ethnologists, this book provides a broad view of the perspectives that emerge from the spatial turn. The chapters explore issues such as (trans)nationality, tourism, urban culture, interactive media, and the networking of domestic space. Together, they map out what might become a new sub-field within media and cultural studies: the geography of communication.
