Social Inequalities, Media, and Communication : Theory and Roots Hardback
Edited by Jan Servaes, Toks Oyedemi
Part of the Communication, Globalization, and Cultural Identity series
Social Inequalities, Media, and Communication: Theory and Roots provides a global analysis of the intersection of social inequalities, media, and communication.
This book contains chapter contributions written by scholars from around the world who engage in country- and region-specific case studies of social inequalities in media and communication.
The volume is a theoretical exploration of the classical, structuralist, culturalist, postmodernist, and postcolonial theoretical approaches to inequality and how these theoretical discourses provide critical understanding of social inequalities in relation to narratives shaped by media and communication experiences.
The contributors provide class and gender analyses of media and culture, engage theoretical discourses of inequalities and capitalism in relation to communication technologies, and explore the cyclical relationship of theory and praxis in studying inequalities, media, and communication.
