pdf epub fb2 djvu



This fascinating and lucid book provides an overview of the ways in which social theories of contemporary society have tried to deal with the place of the media in the production and reproduction of culture. Nick Stevenson illuminates the relationship between general social theory and the range of communication theories of the medium and the message - concepts of media production, communication and reception.

Understanding Media Cultures highlights the work of individual theorists including Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, J[um]urgen Habermas, Marshall McLuhan, Frederic Jameson and Jean Baudrillard. The author also covers important traditions of media analysis from feminism, cultural studies and audience research. Show
