Digital embeddedness is increasingly shaping how we experience our social lives. At the same time, as all levels of culture and society are shaped by new technological advancements online that lead to new forms of mediatization, the ways and contexts in which digital media are integrated into communicative structures are becoming more diversified and – at the same time – globalized. Likewise, new technologies permeate everyday life at the personal, social and global level. Rapid developments in media technologies engender global mediatization processes within overlapping micro, meso and macro levels. The topic, which has enormous relevance from a technological as well as economic perspective and involves wide reaching cultural and social implications, necessitates interdisciplinary exchange beyond the boundaries of communication and media studies. Therefore, we invite submissions (see Call for Papers) from the different disciplines and theoretical as well as empirical angles.
