Audience Evolution: New Technologies and the Transformation of Media Audiences

Philip M. Napoli

Audience Evolution: New Technologies and the Transformation of Media Audiences by Philip M. Napoli

No longer beholden to the programming or publication schedules of media producers, today's consumers access media content through a number of unprecedented and increasingly prevalent platforms, and the development and overlap of television, the internet, and other outlets have fragmented media audiences more than ever, making the effort to reach them more complex. Building on his award-winning book, Audience Economics, Philip M. Napoli maps the landscape of our current media environment and describes its challenge to traditional conceptions of the audience. He also considers the changes that...

The Picture of Abjection: Film, Fetish, and the Nature of Difference

Tina Chanter

The Picture of Abjection: Film, Fetish, and the Nature of Difference by Tina ChanterTina Chanter resolves a fundamental problem in film theory by negotiating a middle path between "gaze theory" approaches to film and spectator studies or cultural theory approaches that emphasize the position of the viewer and thereby take account of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Chanter argues that abjection is the unthought ground of fetishistic theories. If the feminine has been the privileged excluded other of psychoanalytic theory, fueled by the myth of castration and the logic of disavowal, when fetishism is taken up by race theory, or cultural theory, the multiple and fluid registers...

Composing for the Screen in Germany and the USSR: Cultural Politics and Propaganda

Phil Powrie

Composing for the Screen in Germany and the USSR: Cultural Politics and Propaganda by Phil PowrieDespite the long history of music in film, its serious academic study is still a relatively recent development and therefore comprises a limited body of work. The contributors to this book, drawn from both film studies and musicology, attempt to rectify this oversight by investigating film music from the vibrant, productive, politically charged period before World War II. They apply a variety of methodologies-including archival work, close readings, political histories, and style comparison-to this under explored field.

Migrant Media: Turkish Broadcasting and Multicultural Politics in Berlin

Kira Kosnick

Migrant Media: Turkish Broadcasting and Multicultural Politics in Berlin by Kira KosnickIn this innovative and thought-provoking study, Kira Kosnick explores the landscape of Turkish-language broadcasting in Berlin. From 24-hour radio broadcasting in Turkish to programming on Germany's national public broadcasting and local public access channels, Germany's largest immigrant minority has made its presence felt in German media. Satellite dishes have appeared in migrant neighborhoods all over the city, giving viewers access to Kurdish channels and broadcasts from Turkey. Kosnick draws on interviews with producers, her own participation in production work, and analysis of programs...

Compact Cinematics: The Moving Image in the Age of Bit-Sized Media

Pepita Hesselberth

Compact Cinematics: The Moving Image in the Age of Bit-Sized Media by Pepita HesselberthCompact Cinematics challenges the dominant understanding of cinema to focus on the various compact, short, miniature, pocket-sized forms of cinematics that have existed from even before its standardization in theatrical form, and in recent years have multiplied and proliferated, taking up an increasingly important part of our everyday multimedia environment.

Short films or micro-narratives, cinematic pieces or units re-assembled into image archives and looping themes, challenge the concepts that have traditionally been used to understand cinematic experience, like linear causality, sequentiality,...

Photography and Doubt

Sabine T. Kriebel

Photography and Doubt by Sabine T. Kriebel

Recent decades have seen photography's privileged relationship to the real come under question. Spurred by the postmodern critique of photography in the 1980s and the rise of digital technologies soon thereafter, scholars have been asking who and what built this understanding of the medium in the first place.

Photography and Doubt reflects on this interest in photography's referential power by discussing it in rigorously historical terms. How was the understanding of photographic realism cultivated in the first place? What do cases of staged and manipulated photography reveal about that realism's...

The Camera-Eye Metaphor in Cinema

Christian Quendler

The Camera-Eye Metaphor in Cinema by Christian QuendlerThis book explores the cultural, intellectual, and artistic fascination with camera-eye metaphors in film culture of the twentieth century. By studying the very metaphor that cinema lives by, it provides a rich and insightful map of our understanding of cinema and film styles and shows how cinema shapes our understanding of the arts and media. As current new media technologies are attempting to shift the identity of cinema and moving imagery, it is hard to overstate the importance of this metaphor for our understanding of the modalities of vision. In what guises does the "camera eye" continue...

Light Touches: Cultural Practices of Illumination, 1800-1900

Alice Barnaby

Light Touches: Cultural Practices of Illumination, 1800-1900 by Alice Barnaby

Light Touches: Cultural Practices of Illumination, 1800-1900 explores how urban lives in the nineteenth century were increasingly touched by innovations in the technologies and aesthetics of illumination. Dramatic changes in qualities of light - and darkness -?became acutely palpable to the human sensorium; using, seeing, feeling, and being in light were now matters of intense personal and cultural concern. Light gave meaningful vitality to the period's material culture, and light itself became something to be perceptually consumed.

Over the course of six chapters Alice Barnaby traces how light...

LGBTQs, Media and Culture in Europe

Alexander Dhoest

LGBTQs, Media and Culture in Europe by Alexander DhoestMedia matter, particularly to social minorities like lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people. Rather than one homogenised idea of the 'global gay', what we find today is a range of historically and culturally specific expressions of gender and sexuality, which are reflected and explored across an ever increasing range of media outlets. This collection zooms in on a number of facets of this kaleidoscope, each chapter discussing the intersection of a particular European context and a particular medium with its affordances and limitations. While traditional mass media form the starting...

Routlege Handbook of Media, Conflict and Security

Piers Robinson

Routlege Handbook of Media, Conflict and Security by Piers Robinson

This Handbook links the growing body of media and conflict research with the field of security studies.

The academic sub-field of media and conflict has developed and expanded greatly over the past two decades. Operating across a diverse range of academic disciplines, academics are studying the impact the media has on governments pursuing war, responses to humanitarian crises and violent political struggles, and the role of the media as a facilitator of, and a threat to, both peace building and conflict prevention. This handbook seeks to consolidate existing knowledge by linking the body of conflict...

Everyday Media Culture in Africa: Audiences and Users

Wendy Willems

Everyday Media Culture in Africa: Audiences and Users by Wendy WillemsAfrican audiences and users are rapidly gaining in importance and increasingly targeted by global media companies, social media platforms and mobile phone operators. This is the first edited volume that addresses the everyday lived experiences of Africans in their interaction with different kinds of media: old and new, state and private, elite and popular, global and national, material and virtual. So far, the bulk of academic research on media and communication in Africa has studied media through the lens of media-state relations, thereby adopting liberal democracy as the normative ideal and...

Television for Women: New Directions

Rachel Moseley

Television for Women: New Directions by Rachel Moseley

Television for Women brings together emerging and established scholars to reconsider the question of 'television for women'. In the context of the 2000s, when the potential meanings of both terms have expanded and changed so significantly, in what ways might the concept of programming, addressed explicitly to a group identified by gender, still matter?

?

The essays in this collection take the existing scholarship in this field in significant new directions. They expand its reach in terms of territory (looking beyond, for example, the paradigmatic Anglo-American axis) and also historical span....
