Presence and Mediated Spaces: a Review

Lucia A. Renò
Department of General Psychology, University of Padova, Italy



The aim of this work is to present a review of presence in mediated spaces, namely those spaces experienced through the use of technologies. First, a distinction will be proposed between studies focused either on physical or human space, single or multiple inhabitation. Then, the way in which spatial issues are connected to presence will be described. Finally, some controversies on the nature of Mediated Space (MS) will be briefly mentioned, and how they are connected to the research areas previously identified.
