New Media in Times of Crisis provides an interdisciplinary look at research focused around how people organize during crises.

Contributors examine the latest practices for communicating during crises, including evacuation practices, workplace safety challenges, crisis social media usage, and strategies for making emergency alerts on U.S. mobile phones constructive and helpful. The book is grounded in the practices of first responders, crisis communicators, people experiencing tragic events, and communities who organize on- and offline to make sense of their experiences. The authors draw upon a wide range of theories and frameworks with the goal of establishing new directions for research and practice.

The text is suitable for advanced students and researchers in crisis, disaster, and emergency communication.
