The media and social theory.


The media and social theory.

Ed. by David Hesmondhalgh and Jason Toynbee.



291 pages




In a selection of 16 papers from a September 2006 conference in Oxford, England, media scholars and practitioners examine social theory underlying mass communications in order to clarify and perhaps improve the ideological foundation of the field. Their topics include recognition and the renewal of ideology critique, a contemporary Persian letter and its global purloining, form and power in an age of continuous spectacle, and sex and drugs bait and switch.
