ABOUT THIS BOOK
This volume brings together cutting-edge thinkers and scholars (Henry
Jenkins
, Mizuku Ito, David Gauntlett)
together with young researchers
and students, proposing a colourful spectrum of media-theoretical,
-practical and -educational approaches to current creative practices and
techniques of production and consumption on and off the web. Along with
the exploration of some of the emerging social media concepts, the book
unveils some of the key drivers leading to participatory engagement of
the User.

Mashup Cultures presents a broader view of the effects and consequences
of current remix practices and the recombination of existing digital
cultural content. The complexity of this book, which appears on the
occasion of the fifth anniversary of the international MA study program
ePedagogy Design – Visual Knowledge Building, also by necessity seeks to
familiarize the reader with a profound glossary and vocabulary of Web
2.0
cultural techniques.
