In the book published by transcript, Töpper uses the concept of media affect economy to describe how emotions are ordered in digital networked media environments. In doing so, she is able to show that ambivalences, paradoxes and the figure of the spoilsport in particular have an action-enhancing character and evoke affective media practices on the part of the audience.

The title is available with open access.
