2017 (English)In: The International Encyclopedia of Media Effects / [ed] Patrick Rössler, Cynthia A. Hoffner, Liesbet van Zoonen, Wiley-Blackwell, 2017Chapter in book (Other academic)
Media and communication studies in Scandinavia and the Baltic states has a relatively short institutional history but has been flourishing, particularly since the mid-1990s. One key perspective in developing a (critical) understanding of media usage is mediatization, which is particularly rooted in the Scandinavian research tradition of media and communications but has also flourished within the Baltic states. This entry briefly presents the notion of mediatization from a Scandinavian perspective and discusses some adaptations in the Baltic states. It also reviews dominant trends and patterns in media usage in Scandinavia and the Baltic states and concludes by presenting major research hubs in the area.
