A recently published book seeks to explore how technology is affecting interpersonal communication and advance education and scholarship in the growing fields of social computing and computer mediated communication.
Mediated Interpersonal Communication, co-edited by Susan Barnes, professor of communication and associate director of the Lab for Social Computing at RIT, presents writings from leading scholars in human-computer interaction, organizational behavior, psychology and technical communication. The works focus on how technological developments are changing the way we interact with each other and the impact this transformation is having on everything from business development to advertising to dating.
The volume, published by Routledge, is part of a communication series of text books for colleges and universities.
