Remote Control by Catharine Lumby

Book Description

This book examines the ethical challenges posed by new media formats, technologies and audiences. It considers how these emerging genres and technologies work, how they are reshaping the public sphere, and how the connections between product and viewer, and producer and media consumer, are being changed by new shows and formats. It includes lively chapters from a range of prominent media commentators and practitioners on a diverse range of issues, including reality TV, on-line media, the cash for comment scandal and emerging philosophical approaches to new media ethics. With so much interest in contemporary media forms, and so many heated debates about media ethics, this book will be a must for journalists, media practitioners, watchers and students.

Books By Author Catharine Lumby

Alvin Purple by Catharine Lumby Alvin Purple, Paperback (July 2008)

One of the seminal films of the 1970s, "Alvin Purple" depicts Alvin's struggles with his irresistibility to women - from his school days and time as a waterbed salesman to his short-lived career as a sex therapist. This title takes a fresh look at the film, the social and political era in which it was made and the forces that fuelled its success.

Porn Report by Catharine Lumby Porn Report, Paperback (March 2008)

Draws on wide-ranging empirical research to show the production, distribution and consumption of pornography, its content, its consumers and the public debates within which people make sense of it. This title provides insight into the everyday uses of pornography by ordinary consumers, and the place of pornography in society.

Gotcha by Catharine Lumby Gotcha, Paperback (May 1999)

The author examines how the vast quantities of information and images thrown up by popular culture and the media has radically altered the public sphere since the 1960s. She explores the culture of voyeurism and looks at the collapse of the distinction between entertainment and information.
