Abstract

Against the background of the loss of importance of communication and media studies in public and the current social challenges, the special issue deals with the breadth of the meaning of criticism in communication science: with criticism of, in and through communication and media studies. Initially, four central dimensions of criticism with regard to theories, methods, research objects and the disciplinary identity of communication and media studies are outlined. It becomes clear that in a digitally transformed world, communication and media studies is dependent on the development and thus the change of theoretical and methodological instruments in order to be able to understand and explain appropriately. Following on from this, the articles in the special issue address and analyze different relevant aspects and case studies. But they also clarify further questions and research desiderata.
