Are you in control of your own media use? Can you resist your iPhone or are you its slave? Habits are nonconscious, automatic patterns of thinking and behaving that account for a great deal of media behavior and that pose both challenges and opportunities to further understanding of the impact of the media on ourselves and our society. Together we will explore recent research on media habits from the annals of media and information systems research and revisit the theories that guide our understanding of the psychology of media, old and new.
