Summary

Emotion Online: Theorizing Affect on the Internet takes stock of where we are emotionally with regards to the Internet in social and cultural terms. Online users are switching between personal, national, international and global modes of being and feeling that shape private and public experiences. Drawing upon the well-established discipline of media studies, the book travels theoretically through, across, in and between examples of traditional media as they merge and emerge online. Garde-Hansen and Gorton explore how we feel about, and how we feel in, our online media ecology in the context of global media platforms.
