Modern orality. Anthropological perspectives of plurimedial present time
Modern orality describes an important trait of present-day communication there are structural similarities between original orality and present communication forms, the editors state. ##This book addresses the question what cultural role orality plays today in modern societies, in a communicative arena shaped by a multiplicity of media... These processes are investigated from an anthropological perspective, which goes beyond pure media research and focuses on the social embeddedness of channels of communication.##
