玩物研究群」(Deep Play Reach Group,2004-)由政大新聞學系鍾蔚文教授主持,前身為「專家生手研究群」(Experts/Novices Reach Group,1993-2004),十七年來深耕不輟,為國內最歷久彌新的傳播研究群。以「玩物」承續「專家生手」,名稱的改變,回應日新月異的傳播環境,也象徵我們研究視角的與時俱進。
  
專家生手研究群探討的主題,在於新聞行業中專家能力的特質、專家知識的結構與內涵,以及專家工作的新判準等。簡單地說,從企劃、資料蒐集、查證、分析到寫作、編輯、呈現,新聞傳播無異是典型的資訊工作,但傳統資訊處理典範著重個人心智歷程,未足以描繪此一領域的專家身影及實務知識全貌,因此我們主張由語言活動、情境脈絡切入,建立系統化的理論與研究。
 
玩物研究群乃以專家生手研究為底蘊,進一步探討使用數位工具時能力之內涵,開拓三個轉向:一為向工具轉,導入物質性和機緣概念,以人和工具互動的能力為研究主軸;二為向實踐轉,重點在「當下之用」,亦即研究使用傳播工具中的實踐之知;三為向活動轉,此處以活動理論為代表,提出分析架構。
 
現階段,玩物研究群關心的焦點進入第四個轉向:向身體轉,身體感(embodied experence)代表了人和世界互動的狀態。隨著媒介的進展,人類活動由親身參與逐漸變成以媒介中介為主,透過媒介而形成的感知,其內涵與形式為何,顯然是傳播研究重大而意義深遠的議題。我們要掌握當代社會的本質,甚或為未來傳播的設計整地建樁,必須從這些面向著手。

     Deep Play Research Group (2004- ), formerly known as Experts/Novice Research Group (1993-2004), is chaired by Professor Chung Wei-Wen and established for nearly seventeen years, which is the most senior communication research group in Taiwan. From “Experts/Novice” to “Deep Play,” the evolution of the group title not only keeps up with the time, but also symbolizes the group’s progressive research perspectives.

     Experts/Novice Research Group explores the characteristics of expert capacity, the structure and content of expert knowledge, as well as the new criteria for journalism. The group proposes the systematic researches by analyzing the nature of language activities and situational context.

     On the basis, Deep Play Research Group further explores the digital tool and its use, as the core competence of human actors, and makes three drastic departures from previous researches. First, the concepts of materiality and affordance are applied to examine the interaction between human and tools. Second, practices embodied in the communication tools turn to be the research focus. Third, activity theory is employed as the analytic framework to analyze the relationship between tools and actors.

     To the present stage, Deep Play Research Group has made the fourth departure: the nature of embodied experiences, which is the way of perceiving the world. With the advancement of communication technology, human behavior gradually turns from face-to-face interaction to digital-mediated activities. The interaction of human and media obviously becomes a contemporary significant communication research focus. Starting from here, we will truly realize the intricate meaning of communication and further develop the design of future media.

     The research group members include: Prof. Wei-wen Chung, Associate Prof. Pai-lin Chen and Shun-hsiao Chen, Assistant Prof. Chin-chih Chiang and Feng-chih Cho, as well as many graduate and doctoral students. The group’s research interests include:
1. An Evolutionary History of Embodiment: From Face-to-Face Interaction to Digital-Mediated Activities
2. Looking for Shakespeare in the Digital Age: Expertise on Digital Tools
3. Evaluating Expertise in Journalism: In Search of New Criteria
4. A Study of the Knowledge Structure Underlying Verification, Interview, and Writing: The Nature of Journalistic Competence
