Timely and original, Rethinking Communication Geographies explores the human condition under digital capitalism, depicting an environment in which digital logistics have taken centre stage in day-to-day life. The book responds to a pressing need to address the key questions of human autonomy and security, as well as the social power relations of the platform economy, in a world in which media and space have become increasingly entangled. Establishing a framework for understanding 'geomedia' as an environmental regime that shapes human subjectivity, Andre Jansson advances a humanistic and interdisciplinary approach to the study of communication geographies, arguing that human activities are accommodated to sustain the circulation of digital data. The book examines concrete examples related to audio-streaming, transmedia tourism, and platform urbanism, ultimately demonstrating how digital skills and logistical expertise have become forms of capital in contemporary society. Mapping ongoing transitions related to how digitalization affects spatial processes, the unique perspectives explored in this book will be of equal interest to postgraduates and researchers in the fields of human geography and media and communication studies. The innovative concepts and approaches to the study of digital geography introduced throughout will also enhance the dialogue between a vast range of disciplines across the humanities and social sciences.

Recensioner i media

'This book offers a deep and stimulating insight into how geographies of communication are changing with contemporary digital media and data infrastructures, and why we need to rethink questions of geography, media and communication with today's geomediatization.' -- Andreas Hepp, University of Bremen, Germany 'This book offers an innovative and exciting framework for understanding how the digitally mediated world is increasingly experienced: logistically. Its sustained attention to the entanglement of spatiality and communicative media, as well as to the differentiated possibilities for everyday human agency that then emerge, is particularly insightful and welcome.' -- Gillian Rose, University of Oxford, UK
