Description - Critical Media Studies by Brian L. Ott
Fully revised to reflect today?s media environment, this
new edition of Critical Media Studies offers students a
comprehensive introduction to the field and demonstrates how to
think critically about the power and influence of media in our
daily lives. Material new to this edition includes a chapter on
sociological analysis and reveals new ways audiences use media in
their everyday lives to manage social roles, relationships, and
contexts. Readers will also appreciate the extensive updating of
previously discussed examples to reflect contemporary industry
standards, textual forms, and audience behaviors and the inclusion
of more international material to reflect contemporary
media?s global reach.
Continuing its well-received writing style that is both engaging
and accessible, the book?s twelve perspectives provide
readers with a diverse array of critical approaches to media
studies, including original approaches such as erotic,
sociological, and ecological analysis. Combining the best of
well-tested theory with cutting-edge scholarship, this new edition
of Critical Media Studies, offers invaluable insights into
our current understanding of the nature and consequences of media
in today?s world.
