Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Electronic Emotion
Subtitle: The Mediation of Emotion via Information and Communication Technologies
Edited By: Jane Vincent
Leopoldina Fortunati
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11866
Series Title: Interdisciplinary Communication Studies. Vol. 3
Description:

Electronic emotion is the emotion lived, re-lived or discovered through
machines. It is the emotion that users of information and communication
technologies (ICTs) feel when using or not using different devices. Through
ICTs emotion is amplified, shaped, stereotyped and re-invented but at the
same time sacrificed. This book addresses a number of questions such as:
What does electronic emotion actually mean? How does emotion change when
mediated by information and communication technologies? How are the
production and the consumption of electronic and mediated emotion
articulated? What emotional investment do people express in ICTs? The
editors have brought together a distinctive group of scholars from multiple
disciplines including social sciences, linguistics and information sciences
to discuss and provide some answers to these questions.
