KEYWORDS FOR MEDIA STUDIES
The essential vocabulary of Media Studies
Keywords for Media Studies introduces and aims to advance the field of critical media studies by tracing, defining, and complicating its established and emergent terminology. The book Laurie Ouellette and Jonathan Gray places thinking about media and society into historical context, whether that means noting a long history of “new media,” or tracing how understandings of media “power” vary across time periods and knowledge formations. EDITED BY
