Description - When Media Succumbs to Rising Authoritarianism: Cautionary Tales from Venezuela's Recent History by Ezequiel Korin

This book provides a transversal scholarly exploration of the multiple changes exhibited around Venezuelan media during the Chavez regime. Bringing together a body of original research by key scholars in the field, the book looks at the different processes entailed by Chavismo's relationship with the media, extending their discussion beyond the boundaries of the specific cases or examples and into the entire articulation of a nearly-perfect communicational hegemony.

It explores the wide-ranging transformations in the national mediascape, such as how censorship of journalistic endeavors has impacted news consumption/production in the country to the complexities of Venezuelan filmmaking during Chavismo, from the symbolic postmortem persistence of Chavez to the profound transformations undergone by telenovelas, from the politically induced migration of online audiences to the reinvention of media spaces for cultural journalism as forms of resistance.


Allowing readers to engage not only with the particular case studies or exemplars presented, but with the underlying cultural, economic, political, societal, and technical aspects that come into play and which allow the extrapolation of this body of research onto other national or international contexts, this book will be an important resource for scholars and students of journalism, communication, media studies, and politics.
