By Andrea Baker, 2012
Primarily based on a transnational study of college students’ net-radio consumption practices, this book uncovers two types of audiences (radio online or net-only radio audiences) and a three-tiered net-radio subculture (conservatives, swingers, and radicals), which is determined by users’ taste distinctions and how much power they have over their net-radio consumption and production practices. It contends that net-radio, its synergy with radio and music journalism and youth subcultures is not a trivial flash in the pan, but an important...
C. Bolaño, G. Mastrini & F. Sierra (eds.), 2012
Recent changes in the economic and political world scenario have been dominated by an increasing globalizing process and a constant capital mobilization. This process has left a significant mark on nation-based economies and cultural systems, giving a prominent role to the economic agencies and sectors involved in information and communication industries. The influence and side-effects of this new scenario for public policies in southern countries are just uncertain. This book provides the analytical and conceptual...
By Rousiley C. Maia, 2012
In recent years democratic theory has taken a deliberative turn and one central question that needs to be answered is how to connect face-to-face conversations and deliberations in particular forums to broader discussions in the larger society. Working within the cutting edges of deliberative theories, this book surveys the role of the mass media in the deliberative system and investigates, through a set of empirical cases, a range of key problems in the media arena: the interplay between arguing and strategic maneuvering; public demands...
Edited by Peter Putnis, Chandrika Kaul and Jürgen Wilke, 2011
This book demonstrates how the histories of empires, nations, and large business enterprises are embedded in international communication and media history. In its focus on historical case studies, it shows how the large-scale processes we associate with globalization, such as "time-space compression," work themselves out in specific local and regional contexts. It also deals with the history of news as an internationally traded commodity.
By Elizabeth Eide, 2011
This book is dedicated to the exploration of a specific subfield of journalism—reporting on the Other across real and perceived borders. It is meant to reveal some of the dilemmas and challenges involved in this kind of reporting, concentrating on the long-distance genre of the feature story (reportage); and to open some perspectives when it comes to historical change. It also suggests a methodology of analysis leaning on postcolonial theory, critical discourse analysis, and journalistic experiences.
By Núria Almiron, 2010
Journalism in Crisis aims at explaining the financialization of corporate media and its consequences on journalism. The story starts by tracing back the roots of the links between finance and information and continues until the collapse of the current media conglomerates of the 21st century under the global 2008-2009 crisis.
Edited by Katharine Sarikakis and Daya K. Thussu, 2006
This book includes in one volume some of the most significant debates surrounding the development, use and potential of the Internet. Twenty scholars from four continents address some of the more pertinent questions surrounding the presence and future of the Internet. These are organized into questions regarding the role of the Internet as a mediator of communicative space and process: as an object of current and future policy and as a tool for development. The debates are preceded by a discussion of...
Edited by Peter M. Lewis and Susan Jones, 2006
“A voice for the voiceless”—that is how community radio has often been described. This book is about the training needed for the effective use of community radio by social groups whose voices and opinions are rarely head in mainstream media. Such training includes Internet and computer skills, but bridging the “digital divide” is not simply a technical matter. Those whose opinions are rarely given a hearing may have forgotten, or never learned, how to express them. The self-confidence that can come from the radio...
By Rico Lie, 2002
This volume explores spaces where cultures meet and mix in entangled flows and levels of globality and locality. It makes a contribution to our understanding of the complex processes of communications across and beyond borders. It provides an introduction to intercultural/international communication and changing identities. Through its interdisciplinary approach it integrates theories from communication studies, cultural studies, media studies and social anthropology.
Edited by Tony Lavender, Brigitte Tufte and Dafna Lemish, 2002
Over the last decades Media Education has gradually obtained an educational status in many countries throughout the world although few countries have actually incorporated this subject in their formal school curricula. Where Media Education is taught today, it is principally carried out using a relaxed, pluralistic and a cross- or multidisciplinary approach.
