Media Effects and Society Elizabeth M. Perse and Jennifer Lambe, both at University of Delaware, USA ‘The book is primarily intended for undergraduate and graduate students who take media effects courses. As such, it is a very friendly textbook and reveals the experience of its author in her years of teaching such courses. But the book is also an excellent starting text for researchers, especially from other fields, interested in the impact of the media on their audiences. The integration of theory and research in the main domains of media effects can provide those who study or conduct research in any area of media impact with an excellent review of concepts, theories, models, research tools, and findings...Perse, after successfully introducing to us the packed alcoves of the media effects ‘store,’ opens the last door, the one to the future ‘products’ of media effects, and leaves us there, equipped with theoretical tools to set out on the way.’ – Contemporary Psychology ‘...it is an attractive and very worthwhile book...’ – Political Communication Media Effects and Society provides an in-depth look at media effects and offers a theoretical foundation for understanding mass media’s impact on individuals and society. Working from the assumption that media effects are common and are often underestimated, the text focuses on dominant areas of media effects, providing a synthesis of those key areas of research. With an emphasis on the theoretical explanations for media effects, the text provides readers with explanations of how media effects occur, so they can understand how to mitigate harmful effects and enhance positive ones. The range of media effects addressed herein includes news diffusion, learning from the mass media, socialization of children and adolescents, influences on public opinion and voting, and violent and sexually explicit media content. It also presents a variety of theoretical approaches to understanding media effects, including psychological and content-based theories. In addition, it demonstrates how theories can guide future research into the effects of newer mass communication technologies. New for the second edition are a chapter on effects of entertainment, text boxes with examples in each chapter, discussion of new technology effects integrated throughout the chapters, expanded pedagogy, a glossary of key terms, and updates to theory and research throughout. Written for those who study and conduct research in media effects, Media Effects and Society presents a thorough and accessible discussion of media effects theory.

2nd Edition

Introduction to Communication Studies

Reading the Popular

How can we study communication? What are the main theories and methods of approach? In what has become a classic text, John Fiske provides a lucid, accessible introduction to the main authorities in the field of communication studies, aimed at students coming to the subject for the first time. It outlines a range of methods of analysing examples of communication, and describes the theories underpinning them. Thus armed, the reader will be able to tease out the latent cultural meanings in such apparently simple communications as news photos or popular TV programmes, and to see them with new eyes. September 2010: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-59648-0: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-59649-7: £19.99 eBook: 978-0-203-83738-2

Beneath the surface of the cultural artifacts that surround us – shopping malls, popular music, the various forms of television – lies a multitude of meanings and ways of using them, not all of them those intended by their designers. In Reading the Popular, John Fiske analyzes these popular ‘texts’ to reveal both their explicit and implicit (and often opposite) meanings and uses, and the social and political dynamics they reflect. Fiske’s ‘readings’ of these cultural phenomena highlight the conflicting responses they evoke: Madonna may be promoted as a ‘boy toy’, but young girls feel empowered by her ability to toy with boys; Chicago’s Sears Tower may be a massive expression of capitalist domination, but it can also allow one to tower over the city. In each case it is the latter option that interests him, for this is where Fiske locates popular culture: it is the point at which people take the goods offered to them by industrial capitalism (however oppressive they may seem) and turn them to their own creative, and even subversive, uses.

Fiske’s acute perception and lively wit combine to provide a truly democratic vision of popular culture, one that respects the awareness and the agency of the people who make it.

2nd Edition

October 2010: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-59650-3: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-59651-0: £19.99 eBook: 978-0-203-83725-2

Understanding Popular Culture What is popular culture? How does it differ from mass culture? And what do popular ‘texts’ reveal about class, race, and gender dynamics in a society? John Fiske answers these and a host of other questions in Understanding Popular Culture. When it was first written, Understanding Popular Culture took a groundbreaking approach to studying such cultural artifacts as jeans, shopping malls, tabloid newspapers, and TV game shows, which remains relevant today. Fiske differentiates between mass culture – the cultural ‘products’ put out by an industrialized, capitalist society – and popular culture – the ways in which people use, abuse, and subvert these products to create their own meanings and messages. Rather than focusing on mass culture’s attempts to dominate and homogenize, he prefers to look at (and revel in) popular culture’s evasions and manipulations of these attempts. Designed as a companion to Reading the Popular, Understanding Popular Culture presents a radically different theory of what it means for culture to be popular: that it is, literally, of the people. It is not imposed on them, it is created by them, and its pleasures and meanings reflect popular tastes and concerns – and a rejection of those fostered by mass culture. With wit, clarity, and insight, Professor Fiske debunks the myth of the mindless mass audience, and demonstrates that, in myriad ways, popular culture thrives because the audience is more aware than anyone guesses. September 2010: 232pp Hb: 978-0-415-59652-7: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-59653-4: £19.99 eBook: 978-0-203-83717-7 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415596534

2nd Edition

Television Culture Television is unique in its ability to produce so much pleasure and so many meanings for such a wide variety of people. In this book, John Fiske looks at television’s role as an agent of popular culture, and goes on to consider the relationship between this cultural dimension and television’s status as a commodity of the cultural industries that are deeply inscribed with capitalism. He makes use of detailed textual analysis and audience studies to show how television is absorbed into social experience, and thus made into popular culture. Audiences, Fiske argues, are productive, discriminating, and televisually literate. Television Culture provides a comprehensive introduction for students to an integral topic on all communication and media studies courses. September 2010: 424pp Hb: 978-0-415-59646-6: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-59647-3: £19.99 eBook: 978-0-203-83715-3 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415596473

Critical Approaches to Comics

After the Media

An Introduction to Theories and Methods

Peter Bennett and Alex Kendall, both at University of Wolverhampton, UK and Julian McDougall, Newman College of Higher Education, UK

Mediating the Message Theories of Influences on Mass Media Content Pamela J. Shoemaker, Syracuse University, USA and Stephen D. Reese, University of Texas at Austin, USA Media effects scholars have long studied the effects of media on society, but Mediating the Message instead turns attention back to the media content itself, and explores the many ways society affects how media content is produced. Mediating the Message argues that one must first understand how media content is created before understanding its effects. This new edition of a classic media sociology textbook – hailed as one of the ’most significant books of the twentieth century’ by Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly – expands the coverage of the first two editions, which emphasized news, to address media content as a whole, including extensive coverage of entertainment media throughout.

The Routledge Handbook of Participatory Cultures Edited by Aaron Delwiche and Jennifer Henderson How did we get from Hollywood to YouTube? What is the difference between Wikipedia and a traditional encyclopedia? Has blogging truly transformed journalism? The Routledge Handbook of Participatory Cultures engages these and other pressing questions related to the seismic shift in our media landscape as digital technology has fostered the rise of ’participatory culture’. Media creation, distribution, and exhibition was once monopolized by a handful of institutions (e.g. newspapers, television stations, movie studios), but today many of these tools are readily available to the general public, and people are using this technology – in just one example – to create or remix fan-generated entertainment on video sharing sites like YouTube. The Routledge Handbook of Participatory Cultures will help students and scholars navigate this rapidly changing media and cultural terrain. Composed of newly commissioned essays from contributors across disciplines, this Handbook will introduce students to the concept of participatory culture, explain how researchers approach participatory culture studies, and provide original examples of participatory culture in action. The wide range of topics explored in participatory culture include crowdsourcing, citizen journalism, fanfiction, wikis, video games, video sharing, transmedia storytelling, and much more.

Culture and Identity in the 21st Century

Edited by Randy Duncan and Matthew J. Smith Critical Approaches to Comics offers students a deeper understanding of the artistic and cultural significance of comic books and graphic novels by introducing key theories and critical methods for analyzing comics. Each chapter explains and then demonstrates a critical method or approach, which students can then apply to interrogate and critique the meanings and forms of comic books, graphic novels, and sequential art. The authors introduce a wide range of critical perspectives on comics, addressing methodologies including fandom, genre, intertextuality, adaptation, gender, narrative, formalism, visual culture, and much more. As the first comprehensive introduction to critical methods for studying comics, Critical Approaches to Comics is the ideal textbook for introductory and advanced courses in comics studies. December 2011: 400pp Hb: 978-0-415-88554-6: £95.00 Pb: 978-0-415-88555-3: £29.99 eBook: 978-0-203-83945-4

This provocative text considers the state of media and cultural studies today, after the demolition of the traditional media paradigm and engages with the new, active consumer culture. Using the central media concepts of representation, power, genre, identity, politics, history, narrative, audience and technology, the authors discuss media 2.0 and how the big theories of the twentieth and early twenty-first century need to change in the light of modern technology and audience interactivity. This book discusses the previously imagined passive consumption of ideologies as presented by the elite media professionals and addresses how this has changed. After the Media debates how meaning is negotiated between producer and consumer, how technology has crumbled the producer/consumer barrier, and asks how applicable critical theory is to today’s study of the media.

The Media Studies Reader

New in 2011

Edited by Laurie Ouellette, University of Minnesota, USA

Subculture

The Media Studies Reader is a broad and accessible anthology that addresses the key topics, debates and theoretical perspectives associated with the interdisciplinary field of media studies. Emphasizing critical and cultural approaches, the collection provides an up-to-date survey of the major sub-areas of Media Studies including: 1) media and power, 2) media technologies, 3) media institutions, 4) advertising and commercialism, 5) signification and representation, 6) identity and self-fashioning, 7) audiences and social practices and 8) media and citizenship. The Media Studies Reader presents foundational essays by leading scholars alongside the most influential new writing in the field today. Defining media in the widest sense, the chapters address traditional mass media (film, television, print) as well as new media technologies and practices (interactive games, file-sharing, social networking sites). The collection encompasses a wide range of conceptual vantage points, including political economy, semiotics, ideological and myth analysis, cultural studies, audience and fan studies, identity and representational politics, public sphere theory and newer work on interactivity, governmentality and self-fashioning. Critical introductions for each section and headnotes for each reading are used to help students place the material in context and highlight key issues, and longer pieces are selectively edited for conciseness and accessibility. The Media Studies Reader provides an entry point into the critical media studies tradition – as well as a timely account of new theoretical moves and technological developments. A map of a rapidly growing – and changing – field, it will be an invaluable resource to students as well as established scholars.

The Meaning of Style Dick Hebdige, The University of California, USA Series: Routledge Classics ’Recommended whole-heartedly.’ – The New York Times Dick Hebdige’s Subculture is one of the most influential books in cultural studies to have been published in the last fifty years. Acclaimed by Rolling Stone and The New York Times on its first publication, it is a classic study of youth subcultures and the story of style, from Reggae and Rastafarianism to glam rock and punk. Beginning with an explanation of such contested terms as culture, ideology, hegemony, style and subculture Hebidge also investigates the postwar styles of hipsters, beats, teds, mods, skinheads, rude boys, glam and glitter rockers, punks, and dreads. He also brilliantly analyses different facets of style, especially punk and working-class subculture and explores the commodification and diffusion of style by the media. A landmark in the field of cultural and media studies Subculture is a tour de force of writing on music, style and culture and the antagonistic and creative forces that shape them. A renowned cultural critic and theorist, Dick Hebdige has published widely on youth subculture, contemporary music, art and design, and consumer and media culture. His current interests include the integration of autobiography and mixed media in critical writing and pedagogy.

Media and Democracy

2nd Edition

Media Spaces and Security after 9/11

James Curran, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK

Lisa Parks, University of California, USA Since the 9/11 attacks, media and security are increasingly intertwined as the media technologies of filtering, sorting and keywording have become essential elements of national defence. In this book, Lisa Parks explores the complex relations between media and security and uses the term ’coverage’ to develop a conceptual framework for understanding them.

Series: Communication and Society

A major goal of this book is to critique the popular idea of coverage as simply a neutral practice of objectively reporting an event by the news media. Instead, Parks argues, media coverage actively involves the power to shape not only how citizens think and act, but also how they imagine global space and power relations in the aftermath of 9/11.

• Why are Americans less informed about politics and international affairs than Europeans?

October 2011: 192pp Hb: 978-0-415-99981-6: £75.00 Pb: 978-0-415-99982-3: £21.99 eBook: 978-0-203-87964-1

Media and Democracy addresses key topics and themes in relation to democratic theory, media and technology, comparative media studies, media and history, and the evolution of media research. For example: • How does TV entertainment contribute to the democratic life of society?

• How should new communications technology and globalisation change our understanding of the democratic role of the media? • What does the rise of international ezines reveal about the limits of the internet? • What is the future of journalism? • Does advertising influence the media? • Is American media independence from government a myth?

Global Image Wars Geopolitics and Post-9/11 Visual Culture Kari Anden-Papadopoulos, Stockholm University, Sweden Global Image Wars looks at the enduring power of visual representations to shape identities and structure relations of geopolitical power in the post 9/11 global media order. Increasingly professional government media management strategies have strengthened the dominance of official perspectives in the US and UK mainstream media. However, cable and satellite television, as well as new media technologies have made it more difficult for nation states to control the information crossing their borders. The ’image wars’ of the twenty-first century are no longer confined to traditional mass media, but extended to an increasingly porous global communication space. Alternative imagery of violent international conflict is exploding onto these new public spheres, and often finds its way into conventional news outlets. Such imagery, in the case of the Iraq war, includes stills and videos created by active duty soldiers and images produced by civilians in the war zone, as well as Iraqi ’insurgent’ imagery. Global Image Wars considers the spectacularization of warfare in an era of media convergence, examining how images and practices in post-9/11 global visual culture have been used to license but also challenge geopolitical power.

Curran’s response to these questions provides both a clear introduction to media research, written for university undergraduates studying in different countries, and an innovative analysis written by one of the field’s leading scholars.

Qualitative and Quantitative Methodologies Edited by Klaus Bruhn Jensen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark ’An authoritative, stimulating and rigorous survey of diverse research traditions in media and communications. The emphasis on identifying the potential for convergence across these traditions is both original and welcome.’ – Sonia Livingstone, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK A Handbook of Media and Communications Research presents qualitative as well as quantitative approaches to the analysis and interpretation of media, covering perspectives from both the social sciences and the humanities. The Handbook offers a comprehensive review of earlier research and a set of guidelines for how to think about, plan, and carry out studies of media in different social and cultural contexts. Divided into sections on the history, systematics and pragmatics of research, and written by internationally acknowledged specialists in each area, the Handbook will be a standard reference work for students and researchers.

Explorations in Media, Race, and Justice

Racial Spectacles Jonathan Markovitz, University of California, USA

New in 2011

Folk Devils and Moral Panics Stanley Cohen, London School of Economics, UK Series: Routledge Classics Stanely Cohen’s study of deviant groups – society’s ’folk devils’ – and the public and media reaction to them, is widely hailed as a classic of its kind. With great insight he reviews recent theory and criticism about the concept of ’moral panics’ and discusses the moral panics surrounding the folk devils of recent times. April 2011: 224pp Pb: 978-0-415-61016-2: £14.99 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415610162

Racial Spectacles: Explorations in Race, Media, and Justice examines the crucial role the media has played in circulating and shaping national dialogues about race through demonstrations of crime and racialized violence. Jonathan Markovitz argues that mass media ’racial spectacles’ often work to shore up racist stereotypes, but that they also provide opportunities to challenge prevalent conceptions of race, and can be seized upon as vehicles for social protest. This book explores a series of mass media spectacles revolving around the news, prime-time television, Hollywood cinema, and the internet that have either relied upon, reconfigured, or helped to construct collective memories of race, crime, and (in)justice. The case studies explored include the Scottsboro interracial rape case of the 1930s, the Kobe Bryant rape case, the Los Angeles Police Department’s ’Rampart scandal,’ the Abu Ghraib photographs, and a series of racist incidents at the University of California. This book will prove to be important not only for courses on race and media, but also for any reader interested in issues of the media’s role in social justice.

Global Media, Culture, and Identity Theory, Cases, and Approaches Edited by Rohit Chopra, Santa Clara University, USA and Radhika Gajjala, Bowling Green State University, USA This edited volume examines the ways that global media shape relations between place, culture, and identity. The essays offer a mix of theoretical reflections and empirical case studies to help understand how global media shape cultural identities and, conversely, cultural formations influence the political economy of global media. The volume takes a comparative media approach, addressing issues across media forms including print, television, film, and new media. The intedisciplinary, international scholars gathered here push the discussion of what it means to do global media studies beyond, on the one hand, uncritical and euphoric celebrations of the global media technologies (or globalization) and, on the other hand, perspectives that are a priori dismissive of the possibilities of global media. Some of the key questions and themes that the international contributors explore include: Is the global audience of global television the same as the global audience of the internet? Can we conceptualize the global culture-media-identity dynamic beyond the discourse of postcolonialism? How does the globalization of media affect feelings of nationalism? How is the growth of a consumer ’global middle class’ spread, and resisted, through media? This is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the critical role, unique potential, and particular challenges of media in shaping global culture.

Edited by Lee Edwards, University of Manchester, UK and Caroline E.M. Hodges, Bournemouth University, UK Historically, public relations research has been dominated by organisational interests, treating the profession as a function to help organisations achieve their goals, and focusing on practice and processes first and foremost. Such research is valuable in addressing how public relations can be used more effectively by organisations and institutions, but has tended to neglect the consequences of the practice on the social world in which those organisations operate. This edited collection adds momentum to the emergent interest in the relationship between public relations, society and culture by bringing together a wide range of alternative theoretical and methodological approaches, including anthropology, storytelling, pragmatism and Latin American studies. The chapters draw on insights from a variety of disciplines including sociology, cultural studies, post-colonialism, political economy, ecological studies, feminism and critical race theory. Empirical contributions illustrate theoretical arguments with narratives and interview extracts from practitioners, resulting in an engaging text that will provide inspiration for scholars and students to explore public relations in new ways. Public Relations, Society and Culture makes an essential contribution to a range of scholarly fields and illustrates the relevance of public relations to matters beyond its organisational function. It will be highly useful to students and scholars of public relations as well as cultural studies, ethnicity/’race’ communication, media studies, development communication, anthropology, and organisational communication. This insightful book will make a significant contribution to debates about the purpose and practice of public relations in the new century.

The Gender and Media Reader is the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary anthology of the best known and most influential writings in gender and media studies. It is an essential text for those interested in the development of gender and media studies, its primary topics, debates, and theoretical approaches. In contrast to most other readers edited by feminist media scholars, The Gender and Media Reader is not sex-specific; it examines media culture in relation to males and masculinity as well as females and femininity, while also paying close attention to the many other identities that intersect with gender, particularly race and sexuality. The primary objective of The Gender and Media Reader is to expand readers’ knowledge of how gender operates within media culture through their engagement with classic, foundational writings upon which contemporary studies in this area are based. Taking a multiperspectival approach that considers gender broadly and examines media texts alongside their production and consumption, The Gender and Media Reader will enable readers’ critical thinking about how gender is constructed, contested, and subverted in different sites within media culture. In addition to collecting key works in the field, the anthology will include introductions to each section that facilitate readers’ understanding of the development of gender and media studies by contextualizing the various topics, debates, and theoretical approaches that have shaped it, as well as by highlighting current trends.

What Media Classes Really Want to Discuss A Student Guide Greg Smith, Georgia State University, USA You probably already have a clear idea of what a ’discussion guide for students’ is: a series of not-veryinteresting questions at the end of a textbook chapter. All too often these guides are time-consuming and ineffective. This is not that kind of discussion guide. What Media Classes Really Want to Discuss focuses on topics that introductory textbooks generally ignore, although they are prominent in students’ minds. Using approachable prose, this book will give students a more precise critical language to discuss “common sense” phenomena about media.

Gerard Goggin, University of New South Wales, Australia

The Concise Encyclopedia of American Radio is an essential single-volume reference guide to this vital and evolving medium. Comprised of more than 300 entries spanning the invention of radio to the internet, this reference work addresses personalities, music genres, regulations, technology, programming and stations, the ’golden age’ of radio and other topics relating to radio broadcasting throughout its history. The entries are updated throughout and the volume includes nine new entries on topics ranging from podcasting to the decline of radio.

’Gerard Goggin has produced an incisive and penetrating overview of the world according to mobiles. Any scholar of New Media will want to read this book’ – James Katz, Department of Communication, Rutgers University, USA

2009: 940pp Hb: 978-0-415-99533-7: £110.00 eBook: 978-0-203-86355-8

The book acknowledges that students begin introductory film and television courses thinking they already know a great deal about the subject. What Media Classes Really Want to Discuss provides students with a solid starting point for discussing their assumptions critically and encourages the reader to argue with the book, furthering the ’discussion’ on media in everyday life and in the classroom.

By focusing on the producers, whose practices are explored through illuminative case studies, we are introduced to the processes they value and the attitudes of mind they inhabit. Educators at all levels will be challenged by the underlying question of how we might be able to design literacy and learning environments based on an architecture of participation. The book provides practical and theoretical insights that will make it a key text for students and researchers in literacy and media studies.’ – Guy Merchant, Sheffield Hallam University, UK ’Design Literacies provides stories of digital media producers that may well serve to transform the pedagogy of those of us deeply committed to work in digital media.’ – Danielle Devoss, Michigan State University, USA Design Literacies: Learning and Innovation in the Digital Age explores new ways of meaning making by examining the practices, stories, and products of new and digital media producers with the goal of understanding the logic of marketplace production. Based on interviews with thirty new media and digital technology producers, including designers of video games, community activists and marketers of digital technologies, Design Literacies looks at the shared patterns and common themes and offers a window into contemporary out-of-school practices, a language to describe these practices and a pedagogy that better meets students’ needs in this new media and digital age. With a foreword by Gunther Kress and an afterword by James Gee, Design Literacies: Learning and Innovation in the Digital Age will be of interest to postgraduate and graduate students of applied linguistics and education.

Ordinary Lives Studies in the Everyday Ben Highmore, University of Sussex, UK ’Ben Highmore’s Ordinary Lives is a groundbreaking intervention into the burgeoning field of everyday life studies. It takes contemporary cultural studies into some exciting new critical directions [...] Highmore’s book is digressive but always coherent, deeply personal but always scholarly, entertaining and evocative but always rigorous and thought-provoking.’ – Joe Moran, Liverpool John Moores University, UK This new study from Ben Highmore looks at the seemingly banal world of objects, work, daily media, and food, and finds there a scintillating array of passionate experience. Through a series of case studies, and building on his previous work on the everyday, Highmore examines our relationship to familiar objects (a favourite chair), repetitive work (housework, typing), media (distracted television viewing and radio listening) and food (specifically the food of multicultural Britain). A chair allows him to consider the history of flat-pack furniture as well as the lively presence of inorganic ’stuff’ in our daily lives. Distracted television watching and radio listening becomes one of the preconditions for experiencing wonder through the media. Ordinary Lives asks the reader to reconsider the negative associations of habit and routine, focusing specifically on the intrinsic ambiguity of habit (habit, we find out, is both rigid and adaptive). Rather than ask ’what does everyday life mean?’ this book asks ’what does everyday life feel like and how do our sensual, emotional and temporal experiences interconnect and intersect?’ Ordinary Lives is an accessible, animated and engaging book that is ideally suited to both students and researchers working in cultural studies, media and communication and sociology.

Audiences, Spirits and Magic in Popular Culture Annette Hill, University of Westminster, UK

Beliefs are on the rise, with almost half of the British population, and two thirds of Americans, claiming to believe in extra sensory perceptions and hauntings. Psychic magazines like Spirit and Destiny, television shows such as Fringe, Ghost Whisperer and Most Haunted, ghost-cams and e-poltergeists, bestselling books on mind, body and spirit, and magicians like Derren Brown have moved from the outer limits to the centre of popular culture, turning paranormal beliefs and scepticism into revenue streams. Paranormal Media offers a unique, timely exploration of the extraordinary, unexplained and supernatural in popular culture, looking in unusual places in order to understand this phenomenon. Through a popular cultural ethnography, and critical analysis in social and cultural theory, this ground-breaking book by Annette Hill presents an original and rigorous examination of people’s experiences of spirits and magic. This book is the story of audiences and their participation in a show about matters of life and death. Paranormal Media will be a highly interesting read for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as academics, on a wide range of television, media, cultural studies, and sociology courses.

Edited by Daniel A. Stout, University of Nevada, USA Series: Religion and Society The Routledge Encyclopedia of Religion, Communication, and Media explores all forms of religious communication worldwide and historically, with a special emphasis on oral and written forms of communication.

e-Marketing in Sport

Popular Media, Democracy and Development in Africa

Allan Edwards and Simon Chadwick, University of Coventry, UK

Edited by Herman Wasserman, Rhodes University, South Africa Series: Internationalizing Media Studies Popular Media, Democracy and Development in Africa examines the role that popular media could play to encourage political debate, provide information for development, or critique the very definitions of ’democracy’ and ’development’. Drawing on diverse case studies from various regions of the African continent, essays employ a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to ask critical questions about the potential of popular media to contribute to democratic culture, provide sites of resistance, or, conversely, act as agents for the spread of Americanized entertainment culture to the detriment of local traditions. A wide variety of media formats and platforms are discussed, ranging from radio and television to the internet, mobile phones, street posters, film and music.

Celebrity Society

The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction

The Routledge Handbook of Emotions and Mass Media

Edited by Mark Bould, University of the West of England, UK, Andrew M. Butler, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK, Adam Roberts, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK and Sherryl Vint, Brock University, Canada

Edited by Katrin Doveling and Christian von Scheve, both at Free University of Berlin, Germany and Elly A. Konijn, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Robert van Krieken, University of Sydney, Australia/ University College, Dublin Celebrity Society brings a new dimension to our understanding of celebrities, capturing the way in which the figure of ’the celebrity’ is bound up with emergence of modernity. It outlines how the ’celebrification of society’ is not just the twentieth-century product of Hollywood and television, but a long-term historical process, beginning with the printing press, theatre and art. The book goes beyond the accounts of celebrity ’culture’ to develop the analysis of ’celebrity society’, with its own, constantly changing, social practices and structures, moral grammar, construction of self and identity, legal order and political economy organized around the distribution of visibility, attention and recognition. It draws on the work of Norbert Elias to explain how contemporary celebrity society is the heir to court society, taking on but also democratising many of the functions of the aristocracy. Readers will learn what Obama and Paris have in common, and why we should see all celebrity as driven by the ’economics of attention’, because attention has become a vital and increasingly valuable resource in the information age. Selected Contents: Introduction 1. From Fame to Celebrity: The Celebritization of Society 2. Producing Celebrity and the Economics of Attention 3. Celebrity as a Social Form: Status and Power 4.

Creative Labour Media Work in Three Cultural Industries David Hesmondhalgh, University of Leeds, UK and Sarah Baker, Griffith University, Australia Series: CRESC What is it like to work in the media? Are media jobs more ’creative’ than those in other sectors? To answer these questions, this book explores the creative industries, using a combination of original research and a synthesis of existing studies. Through its close analysis of key issues – such as tensions between commerce and creativity, the conditions and experiences of workers, alienation, autonomy, self-realisation, emotional and affective labour, self-exploitation, and how possible it might be to produce ’good work’ – Creative Labour makes a major contribution to our understanding of the media, of work, and of social and cultural change. In addition, the book undertakes an extensive exploration of the creative industries, spanning numerous sectors including television, music and journalism. This book provides a comprehensive and accessible account of life in the creative industries in the twenty-first century. It is a major piece of research and a valuable study aid for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of subjects including business and management studies, sociology of work, sociology of culture, and media and communications.

The impact of mass media on individuals and society is to a great extent based on human emotions. Emotions, in turn, are essential in understanding how media messages are processed as well as media’s impact on individual and social behaviour and public social life. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach to the study of emotions within a mass media context, the Handbook of Emotions and Mass Media addresses areas such as evolutionary psychology, media entertainment, sociology, cultural studies, media psychology, political communication, persuasion, and new technology. Leading experts from across the globe explore cutting-edge research on issues including the evolutionary functions of mediated emotions, emotions and media entertainment, measurements of emotions within the context of mass media, media violence, fear-evoking media, politics and public emotions, features, forms and functions of emotions beyond the message, and provide the reader a glimpse into future generations of media technology. This compelling and authoritative Handbook is an essential reference tool for scholars and students of media, communication studies, media psychology, emotions, cultural studies, sociology, and other related disciplines.

Convergence Media History Edited by Janet Staiger and Sabine Hake, both at University of Texas at Austin, USA

Convergence Media History explores the ways that digital convergence has radically changed the field of media history. Writing media history is no longer a matter of charting the historical development of an individual medium such as film or television. Instead, now that various media from blockbuster films to everyday computer use intersect regularly via convergence, scholars must find new ways to write media history across multiple media formats. Each essay in this collection addresses a single medium – including film, television, advertising, sound recording, new media, and more – and connects that specific medium’s history to larger issues for the field in writing multi-media or convergent histories.

This volume represents the next generation of research in media psychology, bridging selective exposure into a larger framework of choice in media usage. Considering the myriad media options available to use, this work seeks to answer such questions as: What mechanisms guide an individual’s exposure to/choice of media? How can researchers model them? The questions why and how people decide to use media offerings are key in current communication scholarship. Research on selective exposure has addressed this area in the past, but the term ’media choice’ is used here to represent any implicit/automatic/spontaneous or explicit/deliberate ’decisions’ of the users and subsequent behavioural consequences that lead to a contact with a media stimulus.

Edited by Tilo Hartmann, University of Zurich, Switzerland

’This volume assembles an estimable range of critical analyses of one of the most important mediated artefacts of the modern world – the media event. The authors challenge the construct, extend its usefulness, expand its theoretical basis and application, and examine media events in a far larger and richer context than ever before. Students of global media today are well served by this superb collection of essays.’ – David Morgan, Duke University, USA ’A welcome and worthy successor to Dayan and Katz’s path-breaking study that expands and enriches the discourse on global media events.’ – Daya Thussu, University of Westminster, UK We live in an age where the media is intensely global and profoundly changed by digitalization. Not only do many media events have audiences who access them online, but additionally digital media flows are generating new ways in which media events can emerge. In times of increasingly differentiated media technologies and fragmented media landscapes, the ’eventization’ of the media is increasingly important for the marketing and everyday appreciation of popular media texts. The events covered include Celebrity Big Brother, 9/11, the Iraq war and World Youth Day 2005 to give readers an understanding of the major debates in this increasingly high-profile area of media and cultural research.

What a Girl Wants?

Production Studies

Fantasizing the Reclamation of Self in Postfeminism

Cultural Studies of Media Industries

Diane Negra, University College Dublin, Ireland

Edited by Vicki Mayer, Tulane University, USA, Miranda J. Banks, Emerson College, USA and John T. Caldwell, UCLA, USA

From domestic goddess to desperate housewife, What a Girl Wants? explores the importance and centrality of postfeminism in contemporary popular culture.

Production Studies is the first volume to bring together a star-studded cast of interdisciplinary media scholars to examine the unique cultural practices of media production. The all-new essays collected here combine ethnographic, sociological, critical, material, and political-economic methods to explore a wide range of topics, from contemporary industrial trends such as new media and niche markets to gender and workplace hierarchies. Together, the contributors seek to understand how the entire span of ’media producers’ – ranging from high-profile producers and directors to anonymous stagehands and costume designers – work through professional organizations and informal networks to form communities of shared practices, languages, and cultural understandings of the world.

Advances in Theory and Research

James W. Carey

Stuart Adam that explains Carey’s fundamental role in transforming the study of mass communication to include a cultural perspective and connects his classic essays with contemporary media issues and trends.

The Mobile Interface of Everyday Life

A Networked Self

Technology, Embodiment, and Culture Jason Farman, University of Maryland, USA Mobile media – from mobile phones to smartphones to netbooks – is transforming our daily lives. We communicate, we locate, we network, we play, and much more through our mobile devices. In this book, Jason Farman shows how mobile technology has fundamentally altered our experience of everyday life. He argues that mobile media’s pervasive computing model, which allows users to connect and interact with the web while moving across a wide variety of locations, has produced for a new sense of self for users, a new embodied identity that stems from virtual space and material space regularly enhancing, cooperating or disrupting each other. Farman explores everyday mobile media practices such as mapping, social networking, and gaming to demonstrate how pervasive computing is redefining both the way we experience and understand space and place. He also examines a number of new media-inspired art practices such as alternate reality games, flash mob performances, and location-based narratives that illustrate how mobile technology is creating virtual environments out of everyday, lived space.

A Networked Self examines self presentation and social connection in the digital age. This collection brings together new work on online social networks by leading scholars from a variety of disciplines. The focus of the volume rests on the construction of the self, and what happens to self-identity when it is presented through networks of social connections in new media environments. The volume is structured around the core themes of identity, community, and culture – the central themes of social network sites. Contributors address theory, research, and practical implications of many aspects of online social networks including self-presentation, behavioral norms, patterns and routines, social impact, privacy, class/gender/race divides, taste cultures online, uses of social networking sites within organizations, activism, civic engagement and political impact.

Media Convergence The Three Degrees of Network, Mass and Interpersonal Communication Klaus Bruhn Jensen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

’In this compact and smart volume, Klaus Bruhn Jensen has done two essential things: shown us how rich the pragmatist tradition is for understanding communication and torn down the Berlin wall between interpersonal and mass communication. Media Convergence provides us with a trusty Virgil for navigating the digital jungle!’ – John D. Peters, The University of Iowa, USA The development of digital media presents a unique opportunity to reconsider what communication is, and what individuals, groups, and societies might hope to accomplish through new as well as old media. At a time when digital media still provoke both utopian and dystopian views of their likely consequences, Klaus Bruhn Jensen places these ’new’ media in a comparative perspective together with ’old’ mass media and face-to-face communication, restating the two classic questions of media studies: what do media do to people, and what do people do with media? Media Convergence makes a distinction between three general types of media: the human body enabling communication in the flesh; the technically reproduced means of mass communication; and the digital technologies facilitating interaction one-to-one, one-to-many, as well as many-to-many.

LGBT Identity and Online New Media Edited by Christopher Pullen, Bournemouth University, UK and Margaret Cooper, Southern Illinois University, USA

LGBT Identity and Online New Media examines constructions of LGBT identity within new media. The contributors consider the effects, issues, influences, benefits and disadvantages of these new media phenomena with respect to the construction of LGBT identities. A wide range of mainstream and independent new media are analyzed, including MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, gay men’s health websites, message boards, and Craigslist ads, among others. This is a pioneering interdisciplinary collection that is essential reading for anyone interested in the intersections of gender, sexuality, and technology.

Race After the Internet explores racial identity in the digital age. The contributors consider the complex role that the internet and other digital technologies play in shaping our ideas about race. Some essays consider ways that digital media has made racial identity more complex and fluid, looking, for example, at virtual worlds like Second Life and social networks like Facebook in which people may not share the racial identity of their onscreen selves. Other essays address the digital divide that is still with us, connecting limited access to digital technology to social inequality. A final group of essays enters the brave new world of biotechnology to find ways that biometrics and other new surveillance technologies are creating new forms of racial profiling. The contributors use various methodological approaches, both qualitative and quantitative, in order to investigate how racialization and racism are changing in Web 2.0 digital media and information culture. This collection aims to broaden the definition of the ’digital divide’ in order to revitalize it to convey a more finely granular understanding of usage, participation, and production of digital media technology in light of racial inequality.

New Media A Critical Introduction

Antoinette Pole, Montclair State University, USA

Shaheen Shariff, McGill University, Canada

In an era of depressed civic engagement, where access to the media by common citizens is limited, blogs have the power to change the political landscape. This book catalogs the individuals engaged in political blogging, explains why they started blogging, and examines what they hope to gain from it.

Martin Lister, Jon Dovey, Seth Giddings, Iain Grant and Kieran Kelly, all at University of the West of England, UK

’This book provides a fascinating and considered insight into a phenomenon advancing as almost as quickly as technology itself... the book offers many ways of joining together to combat cyber bullying, while providing a comprehensive and scholarly study of the subject.’ – Children and Young People Now

Immersed in Media Telepresence in Everyday Life Edited by Cheryl Campanella Bracken and Paul Skalski, both at Cleveland State University, USA Series: Routledge Communication Series ’Bracken and Skalski have assembled a collection of works from the world’s foremost authorities on telepresence, a topic that has gone understudied for years. Someone has finally assembled a comprehensive volume on the subject. This book is a must not only for those interested in telepresence, but for mass communication scholars of all kinds.’ – Kenneth A. Lachan, University of Massachusetts, USA Immersed in Media highlights the increasing significance of telepresence in the media field. With contributions representing diverse disciplines, this volume delves into the topic through considerations of popular media types and their effects on users. Chapters in the work explain how the experience of presence can be affected by media technologies, including television, video games, film, and the internet. They also discuss how presence experience mediates or moderates commonly studied media effects, such as enjoyment, persuasion, and aggression. These discussions are accompanied by overviews of the current state of presence research and its future. Ultimately, this work establishes the crucial role of telepresence in gaining a complete understanding of the uses and effects of popular media technologies.

This book looks in depth at the emerging issue of cyber-bullying. In this increasingly digital world cyber-bullying has emerged as an electronic form of bullying that is difficult to monitor or supervise because it often occurs outside the physical school setting and outside school hours on home computers and personal phones. These web-based and mobile technologies are providing young people with what has been described as ’an arsenal of weapons for social cruelty’. These emerging issues have created an urgent need for a practical book grounded in comprehensive scholarship that addresses the policy-vacuum and provides practical educational responses to cyber-bullying. Written by one of the few experts on the topic Cyber-Bullying develops guidelines for teachers, head teachers and administrators regarding the extent of their obligations to prevent and reduce cyber-bullying. The book also highlights ways in which schools can network with parents, police, technology providers and community organizations to provide support systems for victims (and perpetrators) of cyber-bullying. 2008: 328pp Hb: 978-0-415-42490-5: £85.00 Pb: 978-0-415-42491-2: £20.99 eBook: 978-0-203-92883-7 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415424912

’Far more than simply an upgrade or update, this second edition continues its predecessor’s finely-honed critical engagement with the most significant current debates about the new media, both within and outside academia. This should be required reading for anyone interested in this all-important, but much-mythologised, subject.’ – Julian Petley, Brunel University, UK New Media: A Critical Introduction is a comprehensive introduction to the culture, history, technologies and theories of new media. Written especially for students, the book considers the ways in which ’new media’ really are new, assesses the claims that a media and technological revolution has taken place and formulates new ways for media studies to respond to new technologies.

Online Society in China Creating, Celebrating, and Instrumentalising the Online Carnival Edited by David Kurt Herold, Hong Kong University Polytechnic and Peter Marolt, Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore

In Language and Learning in the Digital Age linguist James Paul Gee and educator Elisabeth Hayes deal with forces unleashed by today’s digital media, forces that are transforming language and learning for good and ill. They argue that the role of oral language is almost always entirely misunderstood in debates about digital media. Gee and Hayes deal, as well, with current digital transformations of language and literacy in the context of a growing crisis in traditional schooling in developed countries. With the advent of new forms of digital media, children are increasingly drawn towards video games, social media, and alternative ways of learning. Gee and Hayes explore the way in which these alternative methods of learning can be a force for a paradigm change in schooling. The book is based on examples taken for an array of digital media and can serve as an introduction to the New Literacy Studies in the context of digital media and new digital literacies. This is an engaging, accessible read for scholars in a variety of different disciplines, as well undergraduate and postgraduate students studying language, linguistics, communication studies or education.

Emphasizing the understanding of ethics, the text will help readers ‘do ethics’ expeditiously, honestly, and efficiently when they enter the workplace and need to make critical ethical decisions on deadline. The text is organized around six decision-making questions, and cases demonstrate the application of these questions to real-world scenarios. Each chapter focuses on a specific ethical theory or issue, with a thorough discussion of the key points accompanied by practical applications, demonstrated through references to classic and contemporary issues in media. Student voices are heard throughout the book, illustrating how they have grappled with and applied the concepts in their own worlds and in the media. Distinctive features include: • a new approach to ethical decision making through the ‘5W’s and H’ questions that serve as the book’s framework • discussions and case studies aimed at five media disciplines: journalism, new media, advertising, public relations, and entertainment.

This volume explores the construction of an ethics for news media that is global in reach and impact. Essays by international media ethicists provide leading theoretical perspectives on major issues and applies the ideas to specific countries, contexts and problems, addressing such questions as: Are there universal values in journalism? How would a global media ethics do justice to the cultural, political, and economic differences around the world? Can a global ethic based on universal principles allow for diversity of media systems and cultural values? What should be the principles and norms of practice of global media ethics? The result is a rich source of ethical thought and analysis on questions raised by contemporary global media.

• synthesizes and integrates professional skills and concepts.

Rather than emphasizing the differences among the three writing styles, this book synthesizes and integrates the three concepts, weaving in basic principles of internet writing and reporting. The Companion Website (www.routledge.com/ textbooks/9780805862959) complements the text with student and instructor resources.

Serious Games Mechanisms and Effects Edited by Ute Ritterfeld, Free University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Michael Cody, University of Southern California, USA and Peter Vorderer, VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands

David Surman, Newport School of Art, UK Series: Media Practice Featuring contributions from leading figures in the videogames industry this book surveys both the theory and practice of this fast-growing, yet relatively new disciplinary area. Mapping the commercial process of videogame production from pre-production to games journalism, David Surman demystifies the language of technical production processes by offering the reader a review of key production roles, along with the skills required to fulfil them. Focusing on the distribution and reception of videogames as a cultural form, as well as offering broader perspectives on issues such as the place of games in education and domestic technology, Surman examines the critical perspectives that have emerged in the academic community.

Serious Games provides a thorough exploration of the claim that playing games can provide learning that is deep, sustained and transferable to the real world. With this volume, the editors address the gap in exisiting scholarship on gaming, providing an academic overview on the mechanisms and effects of serious games.

This collection features new essays that explore how modern warfare has been represented in and influenced by video games.

The contributors are some of the most renowned scholars working on video games today including Henry Jenkins, Jesper Juul, Eric Zimmerman, and Mia Consalvo. While the first volume had a strong focus on early video games, this volume also addresses more contemporary issues such as convergence and MMORPGs.

The Video Game Theory Reader

Playing with Videogames

Edited by Mark J.P. Wolf, Concordia University, USA and Bernard Perron, University of Montreal, Canada

In the early days of Pong and Pac Man, video games appeared to be little more than an idle pastime. Today, video games make up a multi-billion dollar industry that rivals television and film. The Video Game Theory Reader brings together exciting new work on the many ways video games are reshaping the face of entertainment and our relationship with technology.

Understanding Video Games The Essential Introduction Simon Egenfeldt-Nielsen, Jonas Heide Smith and Susana Pajares Tosca, all at IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark From Pong to PlayStation 3 and beyond, Understanding Video Games is the first general introduction to the exciting new field of video game studies. This textbook traces the history of video games, introduces the major theories used to analyze games such as ludology and narratology, reviews the economics of the game industry, examines the aesthetics of game design, surveys the broad range of game genres, explores player culture, and addresses the major debates surrounding the medium, from educational benefits to the effects of violence.

Throughout the book, the authors ask readers to consider larger questions about the medium: • What defines a video game? • Who plays games? • Why do we play games? • How do games affect the player? Extensively illustrated, Understanding Video Games is an indispensable and comprehensive resource for those interested in the ways video games are reshaping entertainment and society. A Companion Website (www.routledge.com/textbooks/9780415977210) features student resources including discussion questions for each chapter, a glossary of key terms, a video game timeline, and links to other video game studies resources for further study.

James Newman, Bath Spa University College, UK Playing with Videogames documents the richly productive, playful and social cultures of videogaming that support, surround and sustain this most important of digital media forms and yet which remain largely invisible within existing studies.

Playing with Videogames offers the reader a comprehensive understanding of the meanings of videogames and videogaming within the contemporary media environment. 2008: 224pp Hb: 978-0-415-38522-0: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-38523-7: £18.99 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415385237

The Meaning of Video Games Gaming and Textual Strategies Steven E. Jones, Loyola University Chicago, USA The Meaning of Video Games takes a textual studies approach to an increasingly important form of expression in today’s culture. Citing specific examples such as Myst and Lost, Katamari Damacy, Halo, Façade, Nintendo’s Wii, and Will Wright’s Spore, the book explores the ways in which textual studies concepts – authorial intention, textual variability and performance, the paratext, publishing history and the social text – can shed light on video games as more than formal systems. It treats video games as cultural forms of expression that are received as they are played, out in the world, where their meanings get made. 2008: 208pp Hb: 978-0-415-96055-7: £80.00 Pb: 978-0-415-96056-4: £21.99 eBook: 978-0-203-92992-6 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415960564

Arnheim for Film and Media Studies

Slapstick Comedy

Edited by Scott Higgins, Wesleyan University, USA

Rudolf Arnheim (1904–2007) was a pioneering figure in film studies, best known for his landmark book on silent cinema Film as Art. His aesthetic theories on form, perception and emotion should play an important role in contemporary film and media studies.

In this book an international group of leading scholars revisit Arnheim’s legacy for film and media studies. In fourteen essays, the contributors bring Arnheim’s later work on the visual arts to bear on film and media, while also reassessing the implications of his film theory to help refine our grasp of Film as Art and related texts. The contributors discuss a broad range of topics including Arnheim’s film writings in relation to modernism, his antipathy to sound as well as color in film, the formation of his early ideas on film against the social and political backdrop of the day, the wider uses of his methodology, and the implications of his work for digital media.

Documentary Testimonies

Edited by Tom Paulus, University of Antwerp, Belgium and Rob King, University of Toronto, Canada

This collection of essays challenges longstanding critical dogma and offers new conceptual frameworks for thinking about silent comedy’s place in film history and American culture. The contributors discuss a broad range of topics including the contested theatrical or cinematic origins of slapstick; the comic spectacle of crazy technology and trick stunts; the filmmakers who shaped the style of early slapstick; and comedy’s implications for theories of film form and spectatorship. This volume is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the origins and continued importance of a film genre at the heart of American cinema from its earliest days to today.

The Epic Film in World Culture Edited by Robert Burgoyne, Wayne State University, USA

Edited by Bhaskar Sarkar and Janet Walker, both at University of California, USA

This volume examines documentary films that compel us to bear witness, move us to anger or tears, and possibly mobilize us in to action. The essays gathered here analyze questions regarding the usefulness and legitimacy of documentary testimony: What is the value of the historical archive the televised public hearings or activist online videos constitute? Is it made part of the official record, or dismissed as renegade or ephemeral? To what extent can documentary bring about social change? How do the documentary testimonies compensate for or account for the frailty of memory? 2009: 296pp Hb: 978-0-415-99663-1: £75.00 Pb: 978-0-415-99664-8: £18.99 eBook: 978-0-203-88341-9 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415996648

The standard analytical category of ’national cinema’ has increasingly been called into question by the category of the ’transnational.’ This anthology examines the premises and consequences of the coexistence of these two categories and the parameters of historiographical approaches that cross the borders of nation-states. The three sections of World Cinemas, Transnational Perspectives cover the geopolitical imaginary, transnational cinematic institutions, and the uneven flow of words and images. 2009: 384pp Hb: 978-0-415-97653-4: £75.00 Pb: 978-0-415-97654-1: £21.99 eBook: 978-0-203-88279-5 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415976541

Global Archives of Suffering

World Cinemas, Transnational Perspectives

With the recent release of spectacular blockbuster films from Gladiator to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the epic has once again become a major form in contemporary cinema. This new volume in the AFI Film Readers series explores the rebirth of the epic film genre in the contemporary period, a period marked by heightened and conflicting appeals to national, ethnic, and religious belonging. The essays in this volume explore the tension between the evolving global context of film production and reception and the particular provenance of the epic as an expression of national mythology and aspirations, challenging our understanding of epics produced in the present as well as our perception of epic films from the past.

Movie History A Survey

Douglas Gomery, University of East London, UK and Clara Pafort-Overduin, Utrecht University, the Netherlands How can we understand the history of film? Historical facts don’t answer the basic questions of film history. History, as this fascinating book shows, is more than the simple accumulation of film titles, facts and figures. This is a survey of over 100 years of cinema history, from its beginnings in 1895, to its current state in the twenty-first century. An accessible, introductory text, Movie History: A Survey looks at not only the major films, filmmakers, and cinema institutions throughout the years, but also extends to the production, distribution, exhibition, technology and reception of films. The textbook is divided chronologically into four sections, using the timeline of technological changes: Section One looks at the era of silent movies from 1895 to 1927; Section Two starts with the coming of sound and covers 1928 until 1950; Section Three runs from 1951 to 1975 and deals with the coming and development of television; and Section Four focuses on the coming of home video and the transition to digital, from 1975 to 2010. Written by two highly respected film scholars and experienced teachers, Movie History is the ideal textbook for students studying film history. Key pedagogical features include: • timelines in each section to help students situate the films within a broader historical context • case study boxes with close-up analysis of specific film histories and a particular emphasis on film reception • lavishly illustrated with over 450 color images to put faces to names, and to connect pictures to film titles • margin notes add background information and clarity

Horror Noire

Paul Wells, Animation Academy, Loughborough University School of Art and Design, UK

The Film Handbook

Blacks in American Horror, 1890’s to Present Robin R. Means Coleman, University of Michigan, USA From King Kong to Candyman, the boundary-pushing genre of the horror film has always been a site for provocative explorations of race in American popular culture. Horror Noire presents a critical history of blackness and American horror, from early cinema to the present. Robin R. Means Coleman traces the history of notable characterizations of blackness in horror cinema, examines key levels of black paricipation on screen and behind the camera, and unpacks the genre’s racialized imagery and narratives that make up popular culture’s commentary on race. Horror, the author argues, offers a unique representational space for black people to challenge more ’negative’ or racist images as seen in other media forms and formats, and to portray greater diversity within blackness. Horror Noire considers prominent themes of black horror films including sexuality, religion, majority/minority power relationships, space (e.g. the ’hood or the diaspora), time, slavery, police brutality, poverty, illegal drugs, war, and the role of comedy and satire. Offering a comprehensive chronological survey of the genre, Horror Noire addresses the full range of black horror film, including mainstream Hollywood fare, as well as art-house films, Blaxploitation films, direct-toDVD films, and the emerging US/hip-hop culture-inspired Nigerian ’Nollywood’ Black horror films. Horror Noire presents a unique social history of blacks in America through changing images in horror films. It is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how fears and anxieties about race and race relations are made manifest, and often challenged, on the silver screen.

The Film Handbook examines the current status of filmmaking, how film is produced and distributed and its relation with today’s digital and web-based climate. It reflects on how critical analysis’ of film underpins practice and story, and how developing an autonomous ‘vision’ will best aid the undergraduate student’s creativity.

The Film Handbook offers practical guidance on a range of traditional and independent ‘guerrilla’ film production methods, from developing script ideas, logistics of planning the shoot, cinematography, then to digital systems of post-production, including sound. Film professionals and graduate students share advice of their creative and practical experiences shooting both on digital and film forms.

Korea’s Occupied Cinemas Brian Yecies, Centre for Asia Pacific Social Transformation Studies, Australia and Ae-Gyung Shim, University of New South Wales, Australia Series: Routledge Advances in Film Studies This project compares and contrasts the development of cinema in Korea during the Japanese occupation (1910 –1945) and US Army Military (1945 –1948) periods within the larger context of cinemas in occupied territories. It promises to yield new knowledge and insight by examining the then nascent film industry in Korea in the light of Hollywood’s global expansion campaign, which began in 1929, and the ascension of Japan’s wartime activities. By avoiding a comprehensive application of Western theory on the Korean situation, the project investigates key moments in Korea’s cinematic history and touches directly upon the themes of nation building, national identity, colonial modernity, propaganda and cultural protectionism as well as the sensitive subject of collaboration. This study demonstrates the formation of a cinema under occupation is more complex than our conventional understandings of national cinema tell us. May 2011: 192pp Hb: 978-0-415-99538-2: £70.00

In The Space Of A Song

Analysing the Screenplay

Encyclopedia of Early Cinema

The Uses of Song in Film

Edited by Jill Nelmes, University of East London, UK

Edited by Richard Abel, University of Michigan, USA

Richard Dyer

Songs in a film take up space and time and the way that they do so indicates a great deal about the songs themselves, the nature of the feelings they present, and who is allowed to present feelings how, when and where. In the Space of a Song explores this perception through examples ranging from classic MGM musicals to blaxploitation cinema, with the career of Lena Horne providing a turning point in the cultural dynamics of the feeling.

Most producers and directors acknowledge the crucial role of the screenplay, yet the film script has received little academic attention until recently, even though the screenplay has been in existence since the end of the nineteenthcentury.

Analysing the Screenplay highlights the screenplay as an important form in itself, as opposed to merely being the first stage of the production process. It explores a number of possible approaches to studying the screenplay, considering the depth and breadth of the subject area, including: • the history and early development of the screenplay in the United States, France and Britain • the process of screenplay writing and its peculiar relationship to film production

New in 2011

• the assumption that the screenplay is standardised in form and certain stories or styles are universal

The Language and Style of Film Criticism

• the range of writing outside the mainstream, from independent film to story ideas in Bhutanese film production to animation

Edited by Andrew Klevan, University of Oxford, UK and Alex Clayton, University of Bristol, UK

• possible critical approaches to analysing the screenplay.

The Language and Style of Film Criticism brings together a range of essays from international academics and film critics highlighting the achievements, complexities and potential of film criticism. In recent years, in contrast to the theoretical, historical and cultural study of film, film criticism has been relatively marginalised, especially within the academy. This book highlights the distinctiveness of film criticism and addresses ways in which it can take a more central place within the academy and develop in dynamic ways outside it. What particular challenges does the medium of film present for writing and for critical judgement? How is the relationship between critic and film reflected in writing? How can vocabulary and syntax be used appropriately and imaginatively? A range of essays address these questions and more, focussing on the methods, concepts and ideas associated with the specific nature of film criticism.

Analysing the Screenplay is a comprehensive anthology, offering a global selection of contributions from internationally renowned, specialist authors. Together they provide readers with an insight into this fascinating yet complex written form. This anthology will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students on a range of Film Studies courses, particularly those on scriptwriting. Selected Contents: Part 1: History of the form Part 2: Development, Craft and Process Part 3: Alternatives to the Conventional Screenplay Form Part 4: Theoretical and Critical Approaches

This Encyclopedia covers all aspects of scholarship on early cinema, both traditional and revisionist. It contains articles on the technological and industrial developments, the techniques of film production, the actors and filmmakers of the time, and on the changing modes of representation and narration, as well as social and cultural contexts within which early films circulated, including topics such as distribution, exhibition and audience. Beyond the USA and Europe, attention is also given to the wider international picture, including those regions in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South and Central America where filmmaking may have been relatively underdeveloped but movie-going was significant. The Encyclopedia of Early Cinema is an invaluable and fascinating resource for students and researchers interested in the history of cinema.

The Encyclopedia of Early Cinema, now in new paperback edition, is a unique one-volume reference work which explores the first twenty-five years of cinema’s development, from the early 1890s to the mid-1910s. These early years of the history of cinema have lately been the subject of resurgent interest and a growing body of scholarship, and have come to be recognized as an extraordinarily diverse period, when moving pictures were quite unlike the kind of cinema that later emerged as the dominant norm.

The International Film Business

Everyday Pornography

Neo-Feminist Cinema

Edited by Karen Boyle, University of Glasgow, UK

A Market Guide Beyond Hollywood

Public and academic debate about ’porn culture’ is proliferating. Ironically, what is often lost in these debates is a sense of what is specific about pornography. By focusing on pornography’s mainstream – contemporary commercial products for a heterosexual male audience – Everyday Pornography offers the opportunity to reconsider what it is that makes pornography a specific form of industrial practice and genre of representation.

Girly Films, Chick Flicks, and Consumer Culture

Angus Finney, CASS Business School, UK

The International Film Business considers the independent film sector as a business, and the specific skills and knowledge that it requires. It describes both the present state of the independent film industry and the significant technological developments that have begun to take place, and what changes these might effect. The International Film Business:

Everyday Pornography presents original work from scholars from a range of academic disciplines (Media Studies, Law, Sociology, Psychology, Women’s Studies, Political Science), introducing new methodologies and approaches whilst reflecting on the ongoing value of older approaches. Among the topics explored are:

• describes the present organization of the entirety of the film industry as a business

• the porn industry’s marketing practices (spam emails, reviews) and online organisation

• discusses how digital technology is currently and how it potentially may change the structure of the industry in the future

• commercial sex in Second Life

• gives information and advice on the different business skills that are necessary to navigate what is a very high-risk, pyrotechnical industry.

• the content of best-selling porn videos

Taking an entrepreneurial perspective on what future opportunities will be available to prepared and informed business students and emerging practitioners, this text includes case studies that take students through the successes and failures of a variety of real film companies/ projects and exclusive interviews with leading practitioners in all sectors of the industry, from production to exhibition.

• the pornographic narratives of phone sex and amateur videos • how the male consumer is addressed by pornography, represented within the mainstream, understood by academics and contained by legislation. This collection places a particular emphasis on anti-pornography feminism, a movement which has been experiencing a revival since the mid-2000s. Drawing on the experiences of activists alongside academics, Everyday Pornography offers an opportunity to explore the intellectual and political challenges of anti-pornography feminism and consider its relevance for contemporary academic debate.

Hilary Radner, University of Otago, New Zealand

What lies behind current feminist discontent with contemporary cinema?

Through a combination of cultural and industry analysis, Hilary Radner’s Neo-Feminist Cinema: Girly Films, Chick Flicks and Consumer Culture shows how the needs of conglomerate Hollywood have encouraged an emphasis on consumer culture within films made for women. By exploring a number of representative ’girly films,’ including Pretty Woman, Legally Blonde, Maid in Manhattan, The Devil Wears Prada, and Sex and the City: The Movie, Radner proposes that rather than being ’post-feminist,’ as is usually assumed, such films are better described as ’neo-feminist.’ Examining their narrative format, as it revolves around the story of an ambitious unmarried woman who defines herself through consumer culture as much as through work or romance, Radner argues that these films exemplify neo-liberalist values rather than those of feminism. As such, Neo-Feminist Cinema offers a new explanation as to why feminist-oriented scholars and audiences who are seeking more than ’labels and love’ from their film experience have viewed recent ’girly films’ as a betrayal of second-wave feminism, and why, on the other hand, such films have proven to be so successful at the box office.

Philosophy Through Film Mary M. Litch, Chapman University, USA

Some of the world’s best-loved films can be used as springboards for examining enduring philosophical questions.

Revised and expanded, the second edition features a new chapter on political philosophy, an introductory chapter explaining how to watch films philosophically, an appendix with primary readings, and the addition of five new focus films. Films examined in depth include: The Matrix, Vanilla Sky, Hilary and Jackie, Memento, I Robot, Minority Report, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Antz, Equilibrium, The Seventh Seal, The Rapture and Leaving Las Vegas.

The Enchanted Screen The Unknown History of Fairy-Tale Films Jack Zipes, University of Minnesota, USA In The Enchanted Screen, Jack Zipes looks at the long, illustrious life of fairy-tales on film. Zipes argues that, decades before Walt Disney made his mark on the genre, fairy-tales were central to the birth of cinema as a medium – they offered cheap, copyright-free material that could easily engage audiences not only though their familiarity but also through their dazzling special effects. In this book, Zipes examines the special relationship between fairy-tales and cinema, examining how and why so many films have adapted fairy-tale narratives, whether directly or indirectly.

The story of fairy-tales on film stretches far beyond Disney, and therefore this book encompasses a broad range of films – silent, English and non-English, animation, live-action, puppetry, woodcut, montage (Jim Henson), cartoon, and digital. Zipes guides us through this vast array of films by tracing the adaptations of major fairy-tales – Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Snow White, Peter Pan and many more – from their earliest cinematic appearances to today. Essential reading for fairy-tale fans and cinema buffs alike, The Enchanted Screen is lavishly illustrated with film stills throughout and features an extensive filmography and bibliography for future viewing and reading suggestions.

What is the relationship between cinema and spectator? That is the central question for film theory, and renowned film scholars Thomas Elsaesser and Malte Hagener use this question to guide students through all of the major film theories – from the classical period to today – in this insightful, engaging book. Every kind of cinema (and film theory) imagines an ideal spectator, and then imagines a certain relationship between the mind and body of that spectator and the screen. Using seven distinctive configurations of spectator and screen that move progressively from ’exterior’ to ’interior’ relationships, the authors retrace the most important stages of film theory from 1945 to the present, from neo-realist and modernist theories to psychoanalytic, ’apparatus’, phenomenological and cognitivist theories.

Film and Ethics considers a range of films and texts of film criticism alongside disparate philosophical discourses of ethics by Levinas, Derrida, Foucault, Lacanian psychoanalysts and postmodern theorists. While an ethics of looking is implicitly posited in most strands of cinema theory, there is no established body of work that might be called ethical film criticism. This book, therefore, redresses the reluctance of many existing works to address cinema from an explicitly ethical perspective. Lisa Downing and Libby Saxton re-invigorate debates in film studies by foregrounding the ethical dimensions of the moving image, and create dialogues between ostensibly incompatible philosophical and political trends of thought, without seeking to reconcile their differences. 2009: 160pp Hb: 978-0-415-40926-1: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-40927-8: £19.99 eBook 978-0-203-87201-7 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415409278

Film: The Essential Study Guide

Philosophers on Film Series Film is increasingly used to introduce and discuss key topics and problems in philosophy, whilst some films raise important philosophical questions of their own. Yet until now, dependable resources for those studying and teaching philosophy and film have been limited. Philosophers on Film answers this growing need and is the first series of its kind. Each volume assembles a team of international contributors who explore a single film in depth. Beginning with an introduction by the editor, each specially-commissioned chapter discusses a key aspect of the film in question. Additional features include a biography of the director and suggestions for further reading, making the series ideal for anyone studying philosophy, film and anyone with a general interest in the philosophical dimensions of cinema.

Edited by David Davies, McGill University, Canada

Memento Edited by Andrew Kania, Trinity University, USA Within a short space of time, the film Memento has already been hailed as a modern classic. Memorably narrated in reverse, from the perspective of Leonard Shelby, the film’s central character, it follows Leonard’s chaotic and visceral quest to discover the identity of his wife’s killer and avenge her murder, despite his inability to form new long-term memories. This is the first book to explore and address the myriad philosophical questions raised by the film, concerning personal identity, free will, memory, knowledge, and action. It also explores problems in aesthetics raised by the film through its narrative structure, ontology, and genre.

The Thin Red Line is the third feature-length film from acclaimed director Terrence Malick, set during the struggle between American and Japanese forces for Guadalcanal in the South Pacific during World War Two. It is a powerful, enigmatic and complex film that raises important philosophical questions, ranging from the existential and phenomenological to the artistic and technical. 2008: 128pp Hb: 978-0-415-77364-5: £50.00 Pb: 978-0-415-77365-2: £15.99 eBook: 978-0-203-87902-3 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415773652

The book’s four large parts are given over to Music and the ’Silent’ Film (1894 –1927), Music and the Early Sound Film (1895 –1933), Music in the ’Classical-Style’ Hollywood Film (1933 –1960), and Film Music in the Post-Classic Period (1958 –2008). This book offers a genuine history of film music in terms of societal changes and technological and economic developments within the film industry. Instead of celebrating film-music masterpieces, it deals – logically and thoroughly – with the complex ’machine’ whose smooth running allowed those occasional masterpieces to happen and whose periodic adjustments prompted the large-scale twists and turns in film music’s path. 2008: 328pp Hb: 978-0-415-99198-8: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-99199-5: £24.99 eBook: 978-0-203-88447-8 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415991995

Cinema, Memory, Modernity

Series: Routledge Advances in Film Studies Since its inception, cinema has evolved into not merely a ’reflection’ but an indispensable index of human experience – especially our experience of time’s passage, of the present moment, and, most importantly perhaps, of the past, in both collective and individual terms. In this volume, Kilbourn provides a comparative theorization of the representation of memory in both mainstream Hollywood and international art cinema within an increasingly transnational context of production and reception. Focusing on European, North and South American, and Asian films, Kilbourn reads cinema as providing the viewer with not only the content and form of memory, but also with its own directions for use: the required codes and conventions for understanding and implementing this crucial prosthetic technology.

In contrast to these studies, this book considers the many different ways that Hollywood films of the New Deal era addressed the fundamental concepts of the burgeoning welfare state, ideas such as liberal empathy, consumer citizenship, the refeudalization of the state, and, above all, the welfare state ideal of minimal economic redistribution. Siomopoulos argues that Hollywood melodrama in particular became politicized when the New Deal defined consumption as a civic obligation that could help end the Depression and create a more united and democratic nation. When the Roosevelt administration began to promote the idea that the public had a national duty to re-circulate into the economy the income that it had received from New Deal programs, Hollywood melodrama responded in a variety of ways, most of which were supportive of New Deal rhetoric, but some of which pointed out the contradictions in New Deal ideology.

Hollywood and the American Experience W. Bryan Rommel-Ruiz, The Colorado College in Colorado Springs, USA

New

Whether they prefer blockbusters, historical dramas, or documentaries, people learn much of what they know about history from the movies. In American History Goes to the Movies, W. Bryan Rommel-Ruiz shows how popular representations of historic events shape the way audiences understand the history of the United States.

The book uses films from many different genres to show how viewers use movies to make sense of the past, addressing not only how we render history for popular enjoyment, but also how Hollywood’s renderings of America influence the way Americans see themselves and how they make sense of the world.

Hollywood and Politics A Sourcebook Edited by Donald T. Critchlow, St. Louis University, USA and Emilie Raymond, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA Hollywood and Politics: A Sourcebook documents the entertainment industry’s participation in American politics on both the Left and the Right. From the 1920s through today, this volume provides scholars of history, politics, and film with the controversial history of Hollywood’s involvement in American politics. Through twenty-four chapters that begin with Upton Sinclair and take us all the way to the satire of South Park, readers are guided through elections, trials, speeches, and memorandums, many of which have never before been published, providing rare insight into the history of Hollywood activism.

Ana M. Manzanas, Universidad de Salamanca, Spain and Jesús Benito Sanchez, Universidad de Valladolid, Spain Series: Routledge Transnational Perspectives on American Literature This book examines the spatial morphologies represented in a wide range of contemporary ethnic American literary and cinematic works. Drawing from Henri Lefebvre’s theorization of space as a living organism, Edward Soja’s writings on the postmetropolis, Marc Auge’s notion of the non-place, Manuel Castells’ space of flows, and Michel de Certeau’s theories of walking as a practice, the volume extends previous theorizations by examining how spatial uses, appropriations, strictures, ruptures, and reconfigurations function in literary texts and films that represent inhabitants of racial-ethnic borderlands and migrational US cities. The authors argue for the necessity of an alternative poetics of place that makes room for those who move beyond the spaces of traditional visibility – displaced and homeless people, undocumented workers, hybrid and/or marginalized populations rendered invisible by the cultural elite, yet often disciplined by agents of surveillance.

British Film British Popular Cinema The British Popular Cinema series rediscovers and evaluates not only individual films but whole genres, such as science fiction and the crime film, that have been ignored by a past generation of critics. Dismissed for decades as aberrations in the national cinema and anaemic imitations of American originals, these films are now being celebrated in some quarters as important contributions to British cinematic heritage. This series offers the opportunity for both established scholars and new writers to examine long-neglected areas of British film production or to develop new approaches to more familiar territory, and their accessible writing style will make these insights perfect for a wide readership.

Postcolonial Cinema Studies Edited by Marguerite Waller and Sandra Ponzanesi, Utrecht University, the Netherlands How does postcolonial theory recast the debates in cinema studies, and with what aesthetic, economic and political implications? How does postcolonial cinema, in turn, contribute to and, at times, reframe postcolonial debates? ’Postcolonial cinema’ is presented here not as a rigid category within which cinematic productions from the ’Third World’ or the ’Global South’ are to be confined, but as a critical tool with which to address issues of counter-hegemony, resistance, and alternative forms of representation in film productions, past and recent. The book concludes with an afterword by the editors, drawing conclusions and indicating new directions for postcolonial film studies.

Series: The Screen Readers Collating a selection of the best articles on world cinema from esteemed journal Screen, this book discusses key issues affecting world cinema, and allows readers to cross-reference debates and essays that have ranged across many issues of Screen.

Recent case study film series discussed will include: • Harry Potter (Various, 2001 – ongoing)

• Lord of the Rings (Peter Jackson, 2001 – 2003) • Pirates of the Caribbean (Gore Verbinski, 2003 – 2007) • The Chronicles of Narnia (Various, 2005 – ongoing) The authors also consider fantasy film and its relationship to myth, legend and fairy-tale, examining its important role in contemporary culture. The book provides an historical overview of the genre and its evolution, contextualising each fantasy film within its socio-cultural period and with reference to relevant critical theory.

Documentary

Romantic Comedy

David Saunders

Claire Mortimer, Colchester Sixth Form College, UK

Saunders’ spirited introduction to documentary covers its history, cultural context and development, and the approaches, controversies and functions pertaining to non-fiction filmmaking. Saunders examines the many methods by which documentary conveys meaning, whilst exploring its differing societal purposes. From early, one-reel ’actualities’ to the box-office successes of recent years, artistic complexities have been inherent to non-fiction cinema, and this guidebook aims to make such issues clearer. The author examines the impact of recent technological developments on the production, distribution and viewing of non-fiction. In addition, he explores the increasingly hazy distinctions between factual and dramatic formats, discussing ’reality television’, the ’docu-drama’, and less orthodox approaches including animated and fantastical representations of reality. Documentary encompasses a broad range of academic discourse around non-fiction filmmaking, introducing readers to the key filmmakers, major scholars, central debates and critical ideas relating to the form.

Romantic comedy is an enduringly popular genre which has maintained its appeal by constantly evolving, from the screwball comedy to the recent emergence of the bromance.

Romantic Comedy examines the history of the genre, considering the social and cultural context for key developments in new genre cycles. It studies the key themes and issues at work within romantic comedy films, focusing in particular on the representation of gender and how the genre acts as a barometer for gender politics in the course of the twentieth century. Claire Mortimer provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the genre, tracing its development, enduring appeal, stars and the nature of its comedy. Mortimer discusses both British and Hollywood classic and contemporary romantic comedies, ranging from canonical films to more recent examples which have taken the genre in new directions. This book is the perfect introduction to the romantic comedy genre and will be particularly useful for all those investigating this area within film, media or women’s studies.

Film Noir Hard-boiled Modernity and the Cultures of Globalization Jennifer Fay and Justus Nieland, both at Michigan State University, USA

The term ’film noir’ still conjures images of a uniquely American malaise: hard-boiled detectives, fatal women, and the shadowy hells of urban life. But from its beginnings, film noir has been an international phenomenon, and its stylistic icons have migrated across the complex geo-political terrain of world cinema. This book traces film noir’s emergent connection to European cinema, its movement within a cosmopolitan culture of literary and cinematic translation, and its postwar consolidation in the US, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. 2009: 304pp Hb: 978-0-415-45812-2: £55.00 Pb: 978-0-415-45813-9: £14.99 eBook: 978-0-203-86968-0 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415458139

Witness and Watching

John Gilmore, University of Warwick, UK

John Ellis, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

Series: The New Critical Idiom

Documentary: Witness and Watching takes an audience-centred approach, arguing that everyday experiences of what it feels like to film and to be filmed have developed a new sophistication in the viewers of the developed world. We have become distanced, judgemental and sceptical, bringing ethical judgements to bear that used to be the exclusive concerns of the filmmakers themselves.

What is satire? How can we define it? Is it a comic tool or a political weapon? Is satire funny or cruel? Does it always need a target or victim?

The book is divided into two sections: the first part examines the various aspects of the photographic and filmic process: taking images, being filmed and photographed, looking at still and moving images and using filmed material. On the way it takes in the new theories of witness and the position of the spectator; widespread concerns about surveillance and privacy which centre on the use of images; questions of the usage of material way beyond the context for which it was intended; and the implications of easy digital image-making. A series of case-study examples (the ’Kodakers’ panic of the late nineteenth century; the increasing complexity of news broadcasts; the shock of the close-up in early TV etc) are interspersed in the text, which also has substantial original photo illustrations.

• the moral politics of satire

In this Routledge Film Guidebook, audience researcher and film scholar Brigid Cherry provides a comprehensive overview of the horror film and explores how the genre works. Examining the way horror films create images of gore and the uncanny through film technology and effects, Cherry provides an account of the way cinematic and stylistic devices create responses of terror and disgust in the viewer. Horror examines the way these films construct psychological and cognitive responses and how they speak to audiences on an intimate personal level, addressing their innermost fears and desires. Cherry further explores the role of horror cinema in society and culture, looking at how it represents various identity groups and engages with social anxieties, and examining the way horror sees, and is seen by, society. 2009: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-45667-8: £55.00 Pb: 978-0-415-45668-5: £14.99 eBook: 978-0-203-88218-4 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415456685

Jane Campion Deb Verhoeven, RMIT University, Australia Jane Campion is one of the most celebrated auteurs of modern cinema and was the first female director to be awarded the prestigious Palme d’Or. Throughout her relatively short career, Campion has received extraordinary attention from the media and scholars alike and has provoked fierce debates on issues such as feminism, colonialism, and nationalism. In this detailed account of Jane Campion’s career as a filmmaker, Deb Verhoeven examines specifically how contemporary film directors ’fashion’ themselves as auteurs – through their personal interactions with the media, in their choice of projects, in their emphasis on particular filmmaking techniques and finally in the promotion of their films. 2008: 288pp Hb: 978-0-415-26274-3: £60.00 Pb: 978-0-415-26275-0: £16.99 eBook: 978-0-203-88596-3 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415262750

Combining thematic, theoretical and historical approaches, John Gilmore introduces and investigates the tradition of satire from classical models through to the present day. In a lucid and engaging style, Gilmore explores: • whether satire is universal, historically or geographically limited • how satire translates across genres and media • the boundaries of free speech and legitimacy. Using examples including the literature of Roman satire, Chaucer, Dryden and Orwell, the films of Monty Python and Borat, and TV programmes such as Brass Eye and Spitting Image, this comprehensive volume should be of interest to students and scholars of literature, media and cultural studies as well as politics and philosophy.

Butler, University of Alabama, USA Television is developed for the television criticism course in media studies and communication studies curricula, explaining how television programs and commercials are made, and how they function as producers of meaning.

Television provides essential critical and historical context, explaining how various critical methods have been applied to the medium, such as genre study, ideological criticism, and cultural studies. Hundreds of illustrations from familiar television programs introduce the reader to the varied ways in which television goes about telling stories, presenting news, and selling products. Highlights of this fourth edition include: • new organization to reflect current approach to teaching television • discussions of technology integrated throughout • a wide variety of examples, including recent television shows • expanded discussion of cultural issues • a Companion Website (www.routledge.com/textbooks/butler) with links to video websites to support examples in the text, color frame grabs, and materials for instructors.

Flow TV Television in the Age of Media Convergence Edited by Michael Kackman, Marnie Binfield and Matthew Thomas Payne, all at University of Texas at Austin, USA, Allison Perlman, Pennsylvania State University, USA and Bryan Sebok, also at University of Texas at Austin, USA

From viral videos on YouTube to mobile television on smartphones and beyond, TV has overflowed its boundaries. If Raymond Williams’ concept of flow challenges the idea of a discrete television text, then convergence destabilizes the notion of television as a discrete object. Flow TV examines television in an age of technological, economic, and cultural convergence. Seeking to frame a new set of concerns for television studies in the twenty-first century, this collection of all new essays establishes television’s continued importance in a shifting media culture. Considering television and new media not as solely technical devices, but also as social technologies, the essays in this anthology insist that we turn our attention to the social, political, and cultural practices that surround and inform those devices’ use. The contributors examine television through a range of critical approaches from formal and industrial analysis to critical technology studies, reception studies, political economy, and critiques of television’s transnational flows. This volume grows out of the critical community formed around the popular online journal Flow: A Critical Form on Television and Media Culture (flowtv.org). It is ideal for courses in television studies or media convergence.

Relocating Television

Catherine Johnson, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

Circulating Culture, Producing Identity

Television in the Digital Context

Edited by Tasha Oren, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, USA and Sharon Shahaf, Georgia State University, USA

Edited by Jostein Gripsrud, University of Bergen, Norway

For decades, television scholars have viewed global television through the lens of cultural imperialism, focusing primarily on programs produced in the US and UK markets and exported to foreign markets. This book explores how, thanks to recent technological innovation and globalization, television is now finally becoming truly global.

For over half a century, television has been the most central medium in Western democracies – the political, social and cultural centrepiece of the public sphere. Television has therefore rarely been studied in isolation from its socio-cultural and political context; there is always something important at stake when the forms and functions of television are on the agenda. The digitisation of television concerns the production, contents, distribution and reception of the medium, but also its position in the overall, largely digitised media system and public sphere where the internet plays a decisive role.

Series: Comedia Television is not what it used to be. The expansion of competition combined with developments in new media technologies has altered the nature and production of television. Branding Television considers the broader context of new digital media, including an examination of the extension of television on to new media such as the internet and mobile phones.

Global Television Formats aims to revise the place of the global in television studies. The essays gathered here explore the diversity of global programming and approaches, and ask how to theorize contemporary global formats and thus re-shape our understanding of television as at once a shared global and specific local text, an economic system, a socio-political institution, and a popular practice. The contributors explore a wide array of television programming from the Middle East, Western and Eastern Europe, South Asia, North America, Latin America, and Brazil, and represent a broad range of methodological and theoretical approaches from production ethnographies to post-structuralist analysis.

The articles in this comprehensive collection are written by some of the world’s most prominent scholars in the field of media, communication and cultural studies, including critical film and television studies. Relocating Television aims to describe, analyse and interpret a highly complex process of change. Avoiding the technology fetishism and technological determinism so prevalent in writing about digitisation and digital media, each article seeks an understanding of a key element in or aspect of the process. The book in its entirety thus delivers a critical account of the digitisation process as a multifaceted whole.

Screening Gender on Children’s Television The Views of Producers around the World

Also available: Television Culture John Fiske See page Page 6 for more details.

Dafna Lemish, Tel Aviv University, Israel

Screening Gender on Children’s Television offers readers insights into the transformations taking place in the presentation of gender portrayals in television productions aimed at younger audiences. It goes far beyond a critical analysis of the existing portrayals of gender and culture by sharing media professionals’ action-oriented recommendations for change that would promote gender equity, social diversity and the wellbeing of children. Incorporating the author’s interviews with 135 producers of children’s television from sixty-five countries, this book discusses the role television plays in the lives of young people and, more specifically, in developing gender identity. It examines how gender images presented to children on television are intertwined with important existential and cultural concerns that occupy the social agenda worldwide, including the promotion of education for girls, prevention of HIV/AIDS and domestic violence and caring for ’neglected’ boys who lack healthy masculine role models, as well as confronting the pressures of the beauty myth.

Screening Gender on Children’s Television also explores how children’s television producers struggle to portray issues such as sex/sexuality and the preservation of local cultures in a profit-driven market which continually strives to reinforce gender segregation. The author documents pro-active attempts by producers to advance social change, illustrating how television can serve to provide positive, empowering images for children around the world. Screening Gender on Children’s Television is an accessible text which will appeal to a wide audience of media practitioners as well as students and scholars. It will be useful on a range of courses, including popular culture, gender, television and media studies. Researchers will also be interested in the breadth of this cross-cultural study and its interviewing methodology.

Global Perspectives

Television and New Media introduces readers to the ways that new media technologies have transformed contemporary broadcast television production, scheduling, distribution, and reception practices. Drawing upon recent examples including Lost, 24, and Heroes, this book examines the ways that television programming has changed – transforming nearly every TV series into a franchise, whose on-air, online, and on-mobile elements are created simultaneously and held together through a combination of transmedia marketing and storytelling. Television studios strive to keep their audiences in constant interaction with elements of the show franchise in between airings not only to boost ratings, but also to move viewers through the different divisions of a media conglomerate.

Celebrities have come to increasingly dominate the media and its study in contemporary culture. Although acknowledged as part of this general rise in the importance of celebrity culture, television’s specific forms of stardom have until now remained largely under-theorised. Television Personalities: Stardom and the Small Screen examines how television personalities function as commodities, and also function ideologically, thus relating them to issues of class, national identity, sexuality, gender and social history. Television Personalities sets out a new way of considering televisual fame, arguing that it must be understood on its own terms, and establishing the television personality as a particular set of performers whose celebrity is constructed through discourses of ordinariness, authenticity and intimacy. It demonstrates how televisual fame is the product of skilled performances that function at the very heart of why we enjoy television, and the cultural and ideological role television plays in society. The book is divided into three sections that trace the historical development of televisual fame from the 1950s through to the emergence of ’DIY’ celebrity in the digital era. It examines the economics, aesthetics, production, histories, futures and ideological functions of the television personality across a range of examples, including: • Benny Hill, Steve Irwin, Oprah Winfrey, Cilla Black, Simon Cowell, Ricky Gervais, Alan Titchmarsh, Nigel Lythgoe • the stars of YouTube and television’s smaller screens • Extras, Top Gear, The Naked Chef, The Weakest Link. Television Personalities offers an exciting, engaging approach to studying and understanding the most prominent and popular performers in television and celebrity culture. It is an original, indispensable guide for undergraduate and postgraduate students of media, television and celebrity studies, as well as those interested in digital culture more widely.

Series: Shaping Inquiry in Culture, Communication and Media Studies Reality television is global. Transnational television companies and international distribution networks facilitate the worldwide circulation of popular shows; the 1990s in particular saw the growth of media companies that specialize in the development of reality television formats that are easily adaptable to local variations. While the industrial history of the global migrations of reality television is well established, there has been less consideration of the theoretical and methodological implications of this expansion. The Politics of Reality Television encompasses an international selection of expert contributors who consider the specific ways these migrations test our understanding of, and means of investigating, reality television across the globe. The book addresses a wide range of topics, including: • the global circulation and local adaptation of reality television formats and franchises • the production of fame and celebrity around hitherto ’ordinary’ people • the transformation of self under the public eye • the tensions between fierce loyalties to local representatives and imagined communities bonding across regional and ethnic divides • the struggle over the meanings and values of reality television across a range of national, regional, gender, class and religious contexts. This book will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students on a range of Media and Television Studies courses, particularly those on the globalisation of television and media, and reality television.

Beyond Prime Time Television Programming in the Post-Network Era Edited by Amanda D. Lotz, University of Michigan, USA

Beyond Prime Time brings together established television scholars writing new chapters in their areas of expertise that reconsider how programming forms other than prime-time series have been affected by the wide-ranging industrial changes instituted over the past twenty years. The chapters explore the relationship between textual and industrial changes in particular forms such as news, talk, sports, soap operas, syndication, children’s programming, made-for-television movies, public broadcasting, and local programming.

Television Studies After TV Understanding Television in the PostBroadcast Era

Series: Routledge Key Guides

Edited by Graeme Turner and Jinna Tay, both at University of Queensland, Australia

Television studies must now address a complex environment where change has been vigorous but uneven, and where local and national conditions vary significantly. Globalizing media industries, deregulatory policy regimes, the multiplication, convergence and trade in media formats, the emergence of new content production industries outside the US/UK umbrella, and the fragmentation of media audiences are all changing the nature of television today: its content, its industrial structure and how it is consumed. Television Studies after TV leads the way in developing new ways of understanding television in the postbroadcast era. With contributions from leading international scholars, it considers the full range of convergent media now implicated in understanding television, and also focuses on large non-Anglophone markets – such as Asia and Latin America – in order to accurately reflect the wide variety of structures, forms and content which now organise television around the world.

Bernard McGrane and John Gunderson, both at Chapman University, UK Series: Contemporary Sociological Perspectives

’McGrane and Gunderson have put together an extraordinarily provocative stream of sociologically inspired responses to television. Nothing could be more ’relevant’ to students, and in the right hands, this is a resource for a learning experience that at once maximizes critical and creative thinking. McGrane and Gunderson give new life to sociological thinking.’ – Jack Katz, University of California, USA This book was created over years of discussion, classroom experiments, exercises and interaction. This book is also the process and product of the interaction of two individuals working with ideas. Its creation is the antithesis of what we are critiquing. It is the result of a dialogue and human relationship. This book addresses a very different relationship, a ’relationship’ to television, a ’televisionship, ’a one dimensional imprinting relationship without dialogue or living human interaction. It examines a relationship with Plato’s ’cave’ and the contemporary media matrix that continues its existence.

Journalism Studies A Critical Introduction Andrew Calcutt, University of East London, UK and Philip Hammond, London Southbank University, UK

As the world of politics and public affairs has gradually changed beyond recognition over the past two decades, journalism too has been transformed... yet the study of news and journalism often seems stuck with ideas and debates which have lost much of their critical purchase. Journalism is at a crossroads: it needs to reaffirm core values and rediscover key activities, almost certainly in new forms, or it risks losing its distinctive character as well as its commercial basis. Journalism Studies is a polemical textbook that rethinks the field of journalism studies for the contemporary era. It is the politics, philosophy and economics of journalism, presented as a logical reconstruction of its historical development. This book offers a critical reassessment of conventional themes in the academic analysis of journalism, and sets out a positive proposal for what we should be studying.

2nd Edition

Critical Perspectives

Journalism After September 11

Christopher P. Campbell, The University of Southern Mississippi, USA, Rockell A. Brown, Texas Southern University, USA, Cheryl D. Jenkins and Kim LeDuff, both at University of Southern Mississippi, USA

Edited by Barbie Zelizer, University of Pennsylvania, USA and Stuart Allan

Race and News: Critical Perspectives offers essays and case studies that examine how issues related to race and racism are represented in contemporary news coverage in the United States. The first section of this text examines the journalistic routine – how news organizations from newspapers to network news to new media make decisions about what, how, and why stories related are covered with (or without) relation to race. The second section is comprised of case studies exploring how coverage of national stories such as the election of Barack Obama, Hurricane Katrina, and immigrants rights has affected the national dialogue on race and racism. This book will be ideal for courses on race and news media, and it will also be valuable to professional journalists and journalism students who seek to improve the diversity and sensitivity of their journalistic practice. January 2011: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-80096-9: £80.00 Pb: 978-0-415-80097-6: £24.99 eBook: 978-0-203-87685-5 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415800976

Organised around three central themes – ownership, objectivity and the public – Journalism Studies addresses the contexts in which journalism is produced, practised and disseminated. It outlines key issues and debates, reviewing established lines of critique in relation to the state of contemporary journalism, then offering alternative ways of approaching these issues, seeking to reconceptualise them in order to suggest an agenda for change and development in both journalism studies and journalism itself.

New in 2011

Journalism Studies advocates a mutually reinforcing approach to both the practice and the study of journalism, exploring the current sense that journalism is in crisis, and offering a cool appraisal of the love-hate relationship between journalism and the scholarship which it frequently disowns. This is a concise and accessible introduction to contemporary journalism studies, and will be highly useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students on a range of Journalism, Media and Communications courses.

Changing the News The Forces Shaping Journalism in Uncertain Times Edited by Wilson Lowrey, The University of Alabama, USA and Peter J. Gade, The University of Oklahoma, USA Changing the News examines the difficulties in changing news processes and practices in response to the evolving circumstances and struggles of the journalism industry. The editors have put together this volume to demonstrate why the prescriptions employed to salvage the journalism industry to date haven’t worked, and to explain how constraints and pressures have influenced the field’s responses to challenges in an uncertain, changing environment. If journalism is to adjust and thrive, the following questions need answers: Why do journalists and news organizations respond to uncertainties in the ways they do? What forces and structures constrain these responses? What social and cultural contexts should we take into account when we judge whether or not journalism successfully responds and adapts? The book tackles these questions from varying perspectives and levels of analysis, through chapters by scholars of news sociology and media management. Changing the News details the forces that shape and challenge journalism and journalistic culture, and explains why journalists and their organizations respond to troubles, challenges and uncertainties in the way they do.

Series: Communication and Society

Journalism After September 11 examines how the traumatic attacks of that day continue to transform the nature of journalism, particularly in the United States and Britain. Familiar notions of what it means to be a journalist, how best to practice journalism, and what the public can reasonably expect of journalists in the name of democracy, were shaken to their foundations.

Ten years on, however, new questions arise regarding the lasting implications of that tragic day and its aftermath. Bringing together an internationally respected collection of scholars and media commentators, Journalism After September 11 addresses topics such as: journalism and public life at a time of crisis; broadsheet and tabloid newspaper coverage of the attacks; the role of sources in shaping the news; reporting by global news media such as CNN; Western representations of Islam; current affairs broadcasting; news photography and trauma; the emotional well-being of reporters; online journalism; as well as a host of pertinent issues around news, democracy and citizenship. This second edition includes four new chapters – examining Arabic newspaper reporting of the attacks, the perceptions of television audiences, national magazine coverage of the ensuing crisis, and the media politics of ’othering’ – as well as revised chapters from the first edition and an updated introduction by the co-editors. A foreword is provided by Victor Navasky and an afterword by Phillip Knightley.

Changing Journalism Tamara Witschge, Cardiff University, UK, Angela Phillips and Peter Lee-Wright, both at Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK Series: Communication and Society Changing Journalism examines the way in which the profession is changing and what the consequences of these developments are for journalism, both in the UK and further afield. Based in practice, but with a theoretical understanding, this book is written by practitioners and academics, and bridges the gap between theory and practice, at a time when both scholars and those working in journalism are trying to make sense of the vast changes in the field. The authors analyse research in both national and local journalism, broadcast, newspaper and online journalism, broadsheet and tabloid, drawing comparisons between the different outlets in the field of news journalism. Looking at ethnographies, interviews, feature analyses, and qualitative content analysis, this book will provide an in-depth survey of the practice and future of journalism.

Combining practical ’how to’ skills with reflection on the place of each specialism in the industry, this guide features the skills needed to cover specialist areas, including writing match reports for sport, reviewing the arts, and dealing with complex information for science. The book will also discuss how specialist journalists have contributed to the mainstream news agenda, as well as analysing how different issues have been covered in each specialism, such as the credit crunch, global warming, school league tables and the celebrity culture in sport. The book includes interviews with professionals talking about their fields of work and copious examples from a wide range of online, print and broadcast markets, including daily and weekly papers, specialist and B2B magazines, the ethnic press and ’alternative’ publications such as gay, feminist and left-wing press.

Though freedom of the press is widely regarded as an essential ingredient to democratic societies, the relationship between the idea of freedom of speech and the practice of press freedom is one that is generally taken for granted. Censorship, in general terms is an anathema. This book explores the philosophical and historical development of free speech and critically examines the ways in which it relates to freedom of the press in practice. The main contention of the book is that the actualisation of press freedom should be seen as encompassing modes of censorship which place pressure upon the principled connection between journalism and freedom of speech.

How do you report on the latest sensational criminal trial or newest controversial legislation without a basic understanding of how the American legal system works? This easy-to-use guidebook offers an overview of American law that should be found on the desk of any journalism student or professional journalist. It provides an overview of major legal principles and issues in simple terms for journalists who cover any aspect of the legal system. The Guide can be used in two ways: first, as a sit-down read that gives an overview of American law; and second, as a reference that can be used every day under deadline pressure for a specific purpose. Every feature of the book is designed to serve both functions. Thus, the book’s organization captures both the birds-eye view of a subject; and, alternatively, permits a quick review of a given section when the professional needs to understand a distinct concept. The areas covered range from professional concerns such as the First Amendment, cameras in the courtroom, Sunshine laws, and access to government documents to general legal matters such as the institutions of law and lawmaking function of the judiciary; core constitutional principles such as separation of powers and judicial review; and how courts function. The book is ideal for use in general newswriting and reporting courses, particularly those with a focus on legal or court reporting, and may also be used as a supplementary text in Media Law courses.

The volume aims to place journalism history in its theoretical context, to familiarize the reader with essential works of, and about, journalism, and to chart the development of the field. The Reader moves chronologically through American journalism history from the eighteenth-century to the present, combining classic sources and contemporary insights.

Making Hard Choices in Journalism Ethics

Network Journalism

Cases and Practice

Journalistic Practice in Interactive Spheres

David E. Boeyink, Indiana University, USA and Sandra L. Borden, Western Michigan University, USA

Ansgard Heinrich, University of Groningen, the Netherlands Series: Routledge Research in Journalism Drawing on current theoretical debates in journalism studies, and grounded in empirical research, Heinrich here analyzes the interplay between journalistic practice and processes of globalization and digitalization. She argues that a new kind of journalism is emerging, characterized by an increasingly global flow of news as well as a growing number of news deliverers. Within this transformed news sphere the roles of journalistic outlets change. They become nodes, arranged in a dense net of information gatherers, producers, and disseminators. The interactive connections among these news providers constitute what Heinrich calls the sphere of ’network journalism.’ December 2010: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-88270-5: £80.00 eBook: 978-0-203-83045-1 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415882705

This book teaches students how to make the difficult ethical decisions that journalists routinely face. By taking a case-based approach, the authors argue that the best way to make an ethical decision is to look closely at a particular situation, rather than looking first to an abstract set of ethical theories or principles. This book goes beyond the traditional approaches of many other journalism textbooks by using cases as the starting point for building ethical practices. Casuistry, the technical name of such a method, develops provisional guidelines from the bottom up by reasoning analogically from an ’easy’ ethical case (the ’paradigm’) to ’harder’ ethical cases. Thoroughly grounded in actual experience, this method admits more nuanced judgments than most theoretical approaches.

MacIntyre, Virtue Ethics and the Press

Gatekeeping Theory describes the powerful process through which events are covered by the mass media, explaining how and why certain information either passes through gates or is closed off from media attention. This book is essential for understanding how even single, seemingly trivial gatekeeping decisions can come together to shape an audience’s view of the world, and illustrates what is at

Edited by Zizi Papacharissi, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA

The Promise and Reality of a Citizen Engaged Press

Series: New Agendas in Communication Series

Edited by Jack Rosenberry, St John Fisher College, USA and Burton St John, Old Dominion University, USA

Journalism is in the middle of sweeping changes in its relationships with the communities it serves, and the audiences for news and public affairs it seeks to address. Changes in technology have blurred the lines between professionals and citizens, partisan and objective bystanders, particularly in the emerging public zones of the blogosphere. This volume examines these changes and the new concepts needed to understand them in the days and years ahead.

Edited by Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, Cardiff University, UK and Thomas Hanitzsch, University of Zurich, Switzerland

With contributions from up-and-coming scholars, this collection identifies key issues and paves the way for further research on the role of journalism in today’s world. It will appeal to scholars, researchers, and advanced students in journalism, communication, and media studies, and will also be of interest to those in public affairs, political science, and government.

Public Journalism 2.0 examines the ways that civic or public journalism is evolving, especially as audiencecreated content – sometimes referred to as citizen journalism or participatory journalism – becomes increasingly prominent in contemporary media. As the contributors to this essay collection demonstrate, blogging and other participatory journalism practices enabled by digital technology are not always in line with the original vision of public journalism, which strives to report news in such a way as to promote civic engagement by its audience. Public Journalism 2.0 seeks to reinvent public journalism for the twenty-first century and to offer visions of how digital technology can be enlisted to promote civic involvement in the news.
