Transcultural Communication is a significant scholarly contribution to
the field and will be extremely valuable for both students and

“In this ambitious book, Andreas Hepp rethinks much that media and
cultural scholars had thought familiar, in order to map the complexities
and contingencies of our increasingly mediatized and globalised lives.”
Sonia Livingstone, Department of Media and Communications, LSE

"A welcome addition to the existing literature on global culture and
global communication. Transculturality is an excellent departure point
for further reflection on pressing current issues. "
Cees J. Hamelink, emeritus professor of international communication,
University of Amsterdam

“This is the most comprehensive treatment of the transcultural turn
that I have read in years. Based on a vast, multilingual literature and
a systematic analysis of theories of media, culture and globalization,
Hepp gives us a masterly account of processes that we all experience in
our everyday lives. For those of us who write, teach, and speak about
the ever-changing processes of cultural exchange and fusion in the age
of global communication, this book is a perfect guide.”
