Convergence is a refereed academic journal which addresses the creative,
social, political and pedagogical issues raised by the advent of new media
technologies.   Published biannually in paper form and adopting an inter-
disciplinary approach Convergence will develop this area into an entirely new
research field.  The principal aims of Convergence are:
 
o       to develop critical frameworks and methodologies which enable the
reception, consumption and impact of new technologies to be evaluated in  their
domestic, public and educational contexts
 
o       to contextualise the study of those new technologies within existing
debates in media studies, and to address the specific implications of the
increasing convergence of media forms
 
o       to monitor the conditions of emergence of new media technologies, their
subsequent mass production and the development of new cultural forms
 
o       to promote discussion and analysis of the creative and educational
potentials of those technologies, and to contextualise those cultural practices
within wider cultural and political debates.
