Davis Foulger (Communication Studies) Emergent Role Complexity In Media : Communication is made possible by role players who enable the transmission of messages within a medium. This study explores 18 generic roles across 167 media. Three principle generic role patterns are identified. These patterns, content selection, directed control, and role intensive production, appear to emerge in response to three distinct forms of complexity - serial complexity, contention, and parallel complexity - and intermix systematically in seven clusters of media. This presentation overviews these emergent solutions to role complexity in media. It also considers the possibility that the three forms of complexity, and their associated solutions, usefully extend Simon s (1969) "Architecture of Complexity".
