Reviews

“Peter Joseph Gloviczki’s book Journalism and Memorialization in The Age of Social Media offers an engaging overview and introduction to how online memorialization generally functions. … Gloviczki’s book provides many critical points about the nature of online memorialization that should be of particular insight to students and researchers in psychology, the social sciences, journalism, and related fields. … Gloviczki’s book remains a helpful introductory reference for those interested in studying how individuals may memorialize others or events online.” (Eric D. Miller, Journal of Loss and Trauma, February, 2016)

“Gloviczki starts the text by telling his own story with the subject of the book. … Journalism and Memorialization offers a series of questions that Gloviczki works to answer … . Through reflecting on his own experiences with these spaces and trying to develop a process for better understanding them, the author works to get us there.” (Adam W. Tyma, Journalism & Mass Communication Educator, Vol. 70 (4), December, 2015)

"Filled with insights about social media, this well-written book shows the value of targeted research. Through the lens of memorial communities in the aftermath of tragedy, Journalism and Memorialization in the Age of Social Media sheds considerable light on how social media has changed the way we relate." - Thomas E. Patterson, Bradlee Professor of Government and the Press, Harvard University, USA
