(Special Issue), 2014

Transformation in media and communication paradigm is undergoing a necessary and compulsory evolution in human endeavor to achieve greatness. The interplay between the ubiquity of media technology with the need for human connection has created a vortex for media users who are constantly challenging the existing boundaries set as communities, government and industries. What needs to be done to overcome this vortex is a synergy in which these three parties can be scrutinized and studied. This special issue brings together positions and researches from various perspectives that distinctly mark their dealings with the distinct realities of today. The articles are selected from Mention13 international conference, jointly organized by the School of Media and Communication Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and South-South Information Gateway (SSIG), Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, a smart partnership that holds the theme ‘Media and Communication Transformation: Synergizing Communities, Government and Industries’ which resonates well with the mission and vision of the university. There is an existential need for us humans to connect with each other, and the media seem to facilitate the process. The new development in ICT has also deluged our time with modern technologies, which have ontological effects on the meaning of the media audience. With Web 2.0 for instance, media audiences are now media users. What this shows is that instead of passive experiencing of the media, we are now active participants or users. We now contribute to the content of the media and therefore should be held responsible for where the media are taking us as part of society and human nation.

Thus the media system facilitates the expression of collective dialogue to promote towards a critical understanding of the phenomenon of communication. This volume shares point of views, knowledge, ideas, ideologies, positions and policies that distinctly marked realities in the real world. The contestation between global communication and needs, the expression of culture and the manifestation of identity in the ever changing realities of everyday lives call for the rethinking of social, educational and political policies and practices.
