"Convergence" covers the creative, social, political and pedagogical issues raised by the advent of new media technologies. It provides a forum both for monitoring and exploring developments, and for publishing research. It covers areas such as: the move from traditional media to multimedia, gender and technology, control and censorship, copyright, media policy interactivity, education and new technologies, problems of definition and terminology. The principal aims of "Convergence" are: to develop critical frameworks and methodologies which enable the reception, consumption and impact of new technologies to be evaluated in their domestic, public and educational contexts; to contextualize the study of those new technologies within existing debates in media studies, and to address the implications of the increasing convergence of media forms; to monitor the conditions of emergence of new media technologies, their subsequent mass production and the development of new cultural forms; to promote discussion and analysis of the creative and educational potentials of those technologies; and to generate and publish quality research into the use of new technologies in the mass media and in education. This issue includes contributions by: Roger Silverstone, Charles L. Ross, Adrian Page, Margaret Boden, Roy Ascott, Micheline Frenette and Andre H. Caron, Philip Hayward and Geraldine Orrock, Brent MacGregor, Amy Bruckman and Mitchel Resnick, Jeremy Welsh and Giulio Blasi. Apply to John Libbey & Co Ltd for subscription rates.
