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

    Scannell, Paddy (2017)
    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 ...

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

    Wang, Haiyan (2010)
    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...

    Experiencing Television Fandom: Notes on the Tension Between Singularization and Massification in Brazil1

    Coelho, Maria Claudia (2005)
    This paper examines the way fandom is experienced in Brazil. The analysis is based on fan discourse as it appears in letters sent to actors and actresses who work at Rede Globo de Televisão, the major Brazilian TV network, situated at Rio de Janeiro. The analysis proceeds along two axes: the attempts made by fans to distinguish themselves among the crowd and the frequent use of romantic discourse to express their feelings for their idols. Both issues are understood as ‘singularization strateg...

    Book Review: Hafez, Kai (editor) Arab Media – Power and Weakness, 2008, New York: Continuum International, ISBN 978-0826428363

    Haugbolle, Sune (2009)
    Arab Media – Power and Weakness provides an assessment of the emergent field of Arab media studies. The 13 articles of the volume, most written by veterans in the field, discuss issues related to the effects, audiences, contexts, ethics, economy, law and culture of Arab media. The book’s introduction by editor Kai Hafez ties this plethora of material together in an ambitious attempt to outline current research on the links between Arab politics, society and media, and to point to some of the ...

    Market Manipulation? Applying the Propaganda Model to Financial Media Reporting

    Thompson, Peter A (2009)
    Herman and Chomsky’s Propaganda Model (PM) has emphasized how the various ‘filters’ can lead to news reports misrepresenting the vested political and economic interests that underpin US foreign policy. However, there has been relatively little attention paid to the implications of the PM for media operations in another key dimension of capitalism: financial markets. Traders require timely and accurate information about changing market conditions. However, financial news announcements influenc...
