Culture, Media, Theory, Practice
Edited by: Ben Dorfman
The questions of cultural and media theory and analysis are always self-reflective. That is to say that, if we accept the relatively common sense assertion that theory and analysis are the central tasks of culture and media studies, one is never exempted from the questions of what one is attempting to do and why. The book deals with the questions: What does it mean to theorize culture? What does it mean to practice cultural analysis? What does it mean to theorize media? What does it mean to practice media analysis? The Purpose of these questions is to connect research with Culture and Media Studies with global discourses in the field and provide a view of researchers reflecting on their own methods that will be of use for students and researchers of culture media alike.
