EXTENDED SUBMISSION! The upcoming issue of medien & zeit "’Critical Junctures’ In Democratic Media Systems" (2/2024) focuses on the concept of critical junctures from a communication studies perspective. Critical junctures are seen as short-term events with a lasting impact on developments that manifest historically when social and political conventions are shaken. Such turning points can be challenging for media systems in democratically organized states. The aim of the issue is to reflect on and discuss specific turning points at the level of actors as well as in institutional and structural form, for individual states, supranational organizations or international contexts.
Editors: Tobias Eberwein, Christina Krakovsky, Christian Oggolder (Institute for Comparative Media and Communication Studies, Austrian Academy of Sciences/University of Klagenfurt)
