Description - Media Ethics and Social Change by Valerie Alia

This textbook series provides critical introductions to the core subject areas within media studies. Each volume focuses on a key topic of module length and is designed to offer a critical overview as well as an intervention into the subject. Volume topics include: media theory and practice; history; policy; ethics; politics; discourse; culture; and audience. An introduction to issues and practice in media ethics, this book challenges students to identify the requisites for a journalism of integrity and conscience. It addresses questions of inclusivity and diversity and specialist topics that are absent from other texts. Using case studies and workshop exercises based on real-life experiences of working journalists, newsmakers and consumers, Valerie Alia invites students and teachers to examine media practice and develop strategies for ethical problem solving and decision-making. Topics discussed include: ethical theories; social scientific theories and ethical practice; the search for a responsible practice; internationalization of the media; the ethics of interviewing; politicians and the media; ethics and images; changing technologies; and codes and principles.
