Description - Representing Race by John D. H. Downing
Taking as a starting point proposed definitions of 'race', ethnicity, and their media representation, Downing and Husband draw upon their own and others' research in a variety of locations - the UK, the USA, the Nordic nations, Australia, Russia, Latin America and elsewhere - to review a series of new or relatively untapped dimensions for anti-racist media research. These include indigenous people's media, video games, ultra-rightist media, and a fresh reading of the public sphere concept. The range of topics addressed and their comparative treatment move this book's analysis beyond the standard British and American research narrative, while engaging critically with its achievements and shortcomings.
