Screen Cultures and Public Spaces
This chapter challenges the binary characterisation of large screens contemporary public spaces, as either an incursion which threatens the fecundity of public engagement, or as a renewal of the democratic public sphere. A public sphere approach is utilised to extrapolate how big screens are a dynamic element within an emergent media ecology, which mediatizes and transforms the boundary between public and private spaces. It also foregrounds a key concern of the book as the exploration of opportunities for new transnational democratic publics and public spaces.
