  • The Academic Study of Media Has Always Been the Study of New Media

    Has amnesia been a consistent aspect of media studies? This talk argues this may be so drawing upon the insight of Peters and Kleis Nielson (2013: 257) that new media are things we don’t know what to do with and ‘media we do not know how to talk about’. A sense of crisis always accomponies this sense of the newness of the media. Key moments have shaped this history: the sociology of mass communication (associated with Columbia University, NY); the moment of Media Studies and Cultural Studies ...

    Book Review: Perlman, Janice (2010) Favela. Four Decades of Living on the Edge in Rio de Janeiro, New York: Oxford University Press. ISBN – 978-0-19-536836-9

    Between 1968 and 1969, Janice Perlman, a young American researcher, lived in the favelas of Brazil’s “marvellous” city of Rio de Janeiro. Her research produced the book The Myth of Marginality: Urban Poverty and Politics in Rio de Janeiro, published in 1976.

One of the articles in the charter generated a great deal of debate and controversy from a number of international media watchdog organizations, which expressed concern that the charter’s pe...

    How Big Is the Cage? An Examination of Local Press Autonomy in China

    It is often mentioned that reform of the Chinese media since the 1980s, characterized by the withdrawal of state subsidies, has led to the tension of the media having to serve 'two masters', the ruling party and the market. Yet there has been little examination as to how journalists in local newsrooms operate in this milieu, and how they feel about and deal with various pressures. From an insider's perspective, this article attempts to provide a fresh look at the autonomy of China's local pre...

    Exploring the role of the internet in the ‘movement for alternative globalization’: The case of the Paris 2003 European Social Forum

    This paper attempts to explore the role of the internet in the processes of organization and mobilization of the ‘movement for alternative globalization’, which is often characterized as an ‘internet-based movement’. It reports the findings of a survey undertaken in the Paris 2003 European Social Forum (ESF), which asked 257 respondents about the contexts that mobilized them to participate in the ESF (political/voluntary organizations, friends/relatives, workplace/university, news media), as ...
