(p.1) Prelude
Affective Publics

Zizi Papacharissi

Oxford University Press

This prelude to Chapter 1 introduces the concept and the structure of the book. It connects the book’s focus to past and current events and suggests ways in which citizens use media to feel engaged with everyday politics. Technologies network us but it is narratives that connect us to each other, making us feel close to some and distancing us from others. It is this process of affective attunement and investment for publics networked digitally but connected discursively that is explored in this book.
