Beyond New Media: Discourse and Critique in a Polymediated Age brings together a host of differing positions on media in order to explore how those positions can inform one another and how we can build a basis for future engagements with media theory, research, and practice. In order to do so, Herbig, Herrmann, and Tyma have brought together a number of media scholars with differing paradigmatic backgrounds, including critical, postmodern, gender, rhetorical, narrative, and interpretive social science theoretical perspectives. Similarly, contributors' disciplinary backgrounds are diverse, spanning interpersonal communication, media studies, organizational communication, instructional design, rhetoric, mass communication, gender studies, popular culture studies, informatics, and persuasion. Although each of these scholars brings with them a unique perspective on media's role in people's lives, what binds them together is the belief that meaningful discourse about media must be an ongoing conversation that is open to critique and revision in a rapidly changing mediated culture. The media theories that have dominated our thinking and research about media do not adequately describe our complex relationship to media(tion) in everyday lives. In this collection, the contributors debate the relative applicability of existing theories and set out to develop a new approach: polymediation.

At the very heart of the conception of the present volume lies the conviction that social economics is a highly pluralistic discipline, inspired and enriched by several often radically different world views, Schumpeterian visions, and at times even quite antagonistic social doctrines. Yet, in spite of all these differences, social economists can nevertheless be seen and also approached as some kind of economic brotherhood for various reasons dissatisfied with the austere "value-free" diet offered by the pOSitivistic neoclassical paradigm. What all social economists seem to have in common is a profound interest in values and the process of valuation in order to more fully understand both economic behavior and the possibilities of improving the economic system. Such a distinguishing characteristic is also well articulated and enshrined in Article I of the Constitution of the Association of Social Economics where we are told that the aims and objectives of the Association shall be: 1. To foster research and publication centered on the reciprocal relationship between economic science and broader questions of human dignity, ethical values, and social philosophy, [and to] encourage the efforts of all scholars who are dedicated to exploring the ethical presuppositions and implications of economic science. 2. To consider the personal and social dimensions of economic problems and to assist in the formulation of economic policies consistent with a concern for ethical values and pluralistic community and the demands of personal dignity.
