Overview

Zollman has worked as a professor of both communication and psychology, and this collection reflects the intersection of the two fields at the crossroad of emotion, particularly exploring the unifying perspective it provides on media influence. The 23 contributions summarize several theories of communication and emotion, and present empirical advances in media effects and research on media entertainment. Among the topics are gender socialization of horror, media violence effects, news features and learning, the enjoyment of sports spectatorship, and emotion in the context of music television.
