Professor Gumpert is Series Editor for Hampton Press series in Urban Communication.

Editor: Gary Gumpert

Cities are inherently places of communication, meeting spaces for interaction and/or observation. The nature of any communication venue is altered by social and technological circumstances and the urban environment is altered, in turn, by changes in communication patterns. We need to understand relationships among these significant forces--communication, technology, and the urban, suburban, rural environment--as they shape each other. Communication systems and urban social systems can be examined at multiple levels as scholars and planners examine interaction in public spaces, neighborhood communication patterns, and urban systems of transport.

The focus of this series is on social relationships in a swiftly changing communication environment. Media coverage of urban issues, conflict resolution and contested urban space, visual communication, rhetorical dimensions of urban life, film and the city, journalism, the ethnic press, local media and public policy are just some areas of relevance. This book series will provide a forum to explore and discuss the challenges created by the intersection of communication and urban life, focusing on what communication scholarship has to offer for enhanced understanding of cities and for the development of a public policy that takes into account communication needs and practices.

The disciplines of communication and law converge in a variety of ways. The parameters of this series include studies in and about: Communication About the Legal System (i.e. media coverage of the legal system, factual and fictional depictions of the law in media); Regulation of Communication, Media Law and Freedom of _Expression (i.e., laws, codes, rules, treaties and judicial decisions governing communication and media); and the study of jurisprudential rhetoric and forensic skills or communication within legal practice (i.e., the narrative art in the legal context). Varied methodological approaches are appropriate including rhetorical, historical, social scientific, and legal perspectives. Manuscripts exploring interdisciplinary and international issues of free and responsible speech, press, media law, regulation and policy, press freedoms and governance of new media are also welcome.
