“Revaluation of the proxemics code in mediatized communication”
Technological progress in the field of media and communication as well as the dynamics of development of modern communication tools pose a challenge for studying the issue of space in communication and proxemics theory. The mediatization of almost all aspects of human life is based on increasingly better communication tools that transform time-space relations in communication. Natural forms of interpersonal communication are increasingly being replaced by mediatized communication. Electronic communicators are becoming a kind of laboratory that modifies contexts, channels and codes of communication acts, especially in the proxemics field. The lecture focus on functioning and changes in the proxemics code in mediatized communication and recommendations for using proxemics and on improving the quality of personality and efficiency of communication.
