Mobile communication has become the fastest and most widespread diffusing communication technology on the planet (ever). Along the way, a growing body of research and theory has developed to identify and explain the social implications of mobile media. This seminar identifies and critiques the development of this new field, commonly referred to as Mobile Communication Studies. We will discuss the implications of mobile media in the private and public realms of social life and how those implications have changed with the transition from cell phone to smartphone.
