Editorial - Introducing Media, Technology and the Migrant Family: Media Uses, Appropriations and Articulations in a Culturally Diverse Europe

Myria Georgiou, Cristina Ponte

Abstract


In introducing this special issue, we raise a number of key questions with regard to the ways in which we understand the audience and the family through the lens of migration. We then propose a discursive understanding of audiences, and conclude with a brief overview of the contents and of the context of their conception. The interest of this special issue in cultural diversity and media consumption within and across boundaries emerged through a transnational scholarly network, that of COST Action IS0906, Transforming Audiences, Transforming Societies. This Action and its associated academic network represent the organizational and intellectual point of departure and of reference for this special issue.
