Emerging technologies transform increasing power to media users. However, individuals continue to function within structures of time, cost, and resources. This panel aims to bring scholars’ attention to an often-overlooked aspect in communication and technology research – structure. This panel will examine interactive media use and impacts from a structural view. Panelists argue that structures are not fixed, but active and multidimensional. Different conceptualizations of structure will be addressed.
