Media@Sydney Web Seminar: On the Grand Narrative of Media and Mass Communication Research
On the Grand Narrative of Media and Mass Communication Research
The new edition of Denis McQuail’s (1935-2017) book opens up a debate on integrating, diversifying and globalizing the field of media studies and (mass) communication research.
For this 7th edition, Denis McQuail worked with Mark Deuze until his passing on the outline and structure of the book, after which Mark proceeded with carefully editing, updating and extending the text.
New to this edition:
- A focus on reconceptualizing ‘mass’ media and communication and media theory in an age of big data, algorithmic culture, AI, platformization, streaming services, and mass self-communication.
- Inclusion of a diverse and global range of voices, histories and examples from across the field, fully integrating social scientific and humanities-based perspectives and approaches.
- More detailed attention to the way media industries work and what it is like to produce media professionally.
