    Spink, Amanda; Khopkar, Yashmeet; Shah, Prital; Debnath, Sandip (2003)

    Problems and the epistemology of electronic publishing in the Arab world: The case of Lebanon

    Nasser, Ramzi; Abouchedid, Kamal (2001)

    Presence, or the sense of being-there and being-with in the new media society

    Hong, Sun-ha (2015)
    This essay argues that the ways in which we come to feel connectivity and intimacy are often inconsistent with and irreducible to traditional markers like physical proximity, the human face or the synchronicity of message transmission. It identifies this non-objective and affective property as presence: conventionalised ways of intuiting sociability and publicness. The new media society is a specific situation where such habits of being affected are socially and historically parametrised. The...
