An unprecedented transdisciplinary call to reassess the meaning of participation in the digital age

Structured along four axes investigating the relations between participation and politics, surveillance, openness, and aesthetics, The Participatory Condition in the Digital Age comprises fifteen essays that explore the promises, possibilities, and failures of contemporary participatory media practices. This book represents the most comprehensive and transdisciplinary endeavor to date to examine the nature, place, and value of participation in the digital age.

Reviews:

“The Participatory Condition in the Digital Age makes a valuable contribution to discussions about the implications of digital technologies. It offers a multidisciplinary approach that looks at participation from many perspectives (…) [T]he overall result is a very rich and multifaceted account.” -- Joan Soler-Adillon, The Communication Review, Vol. 21, Iss. 1, 2018, p. 85.
