The impact of the mass media on individuals and society is to a great extent based on human emotions. Emotions, in turn, are essential in understanding social behavior and public social life. This Handbook brings together the most current perspectives on these tightly intertwined and highly up-to-date issues. Leading international authorities in the fields of media and communication studies, psychology, sociology, and cultural studies provide a comprehensive overview of the various interrelations of the mass media and emotions. The Handbook systematically analyzes the role of emotions in mass media communications in a step-by-step fashion and on different levels of analysis: psychological, functional, socio-cultural, and technical. In six sections, the contributions address basic conceptual issues, emotions in reception processes, emotional goals and purposes of media communications, emotions as parts of media content, how medially communicated emotions structure and are structured by the socio-cultural environment, and how emotions are affected by innovative media technologies.
