SÁnchez Gonzales, H. (2013). “New media, audience and emotional connectivity”. Sociedad de la Información , .


Abstract: This special issue aims to reflect on one specific aspect, namely the emotional /affective dimensions of the reconfigured relationship between audiences and journalists. This call for papers focuses on the affective dimension of this altered relationship, investigating how audience members and journalists experience, produce, and maintain emotional connections, and how this emotional aspect structures their relationships. Furthermore, the affective dimension of the entrepreneurial experiences by journalists and audience members will be analyzed, as will be the ways these emotional connections are anchored in specific values and practices, such as empathy, orientation towards service, establishment of links with others, organizational awareness, and collaboration.
