Media and Information in today's digital world
In their private lives and as citizens or professionals, people constantly produce and use information. Contemporary life is shaped by ever more complex information technologies and an intensifying information economy. Information has become central to the arts, humanities, creative industries, journalism, and government and administration. Media and Information provides you with advanced conceptual and practical tools to understand the shifts in culture and society brought about by the constant transformation of the media.
