"The mediated public sphere is by now a digital public sphere." In a volume that is a product of the "Democracy and Digitalization of Audiovisual Culture" research initiative at their campus, Grispsrud and Moe (information science and media studies, U. of Bergen, Norway) compile nine conference-derived papers. International scholars address media policy challenges relating to the technologies, processes, and content which mediate the public in a globalized world. Issues treated conceptually and in cases studies include the definition of the public vs. public sphere; public access, programming, and participation; and Internet neutrality.
