Abstract [en]

The following essay examines current research on the history of communications in the so-called early modern era, which still reiterate a Whig approach to media history. Based on a definition of news and its social functions, a different understanding of the contemporary news market is proposed. This market can not be unterstood properly on the basis of notions of a print-based public sphere or media systems. News was and is an investment in social relationships that resulted in forms of participation. They are also a means of participation in contemporaneity, which was part of the lifestyle of functional elites. The understanding of the news market in the seventeenth century outlined here not only questions the periodization of early modern times and related ideas about the so-called modernity, especially within the field of the history of communication. It also offers a different understanding of the social functions of news with repercussions for the contemporary news market.
