9780335218134: Key Themes in Media Theory (UK Higher Education OUP Humanities & Social Sciences Media, Film & Cultural Studies)

"Key Themes in Media Theory is wonderfully wide-ranging and deservedly destined to become a key text for students of Media Studies."
Professor John Storey, University of Sunderland, UK

"The very best text books are not just summaries of complex ideas for a student audience or an introduction to a critical canon; the very best add something to the canon they reflect upon, and Dan Laughey’s Key Themes in Media Theory is one such book. [It] is not a means to an end, as many such books can be. Rather it is a motivational primer, and one that should send both students and teachers heading to the library to read the theorists presented here again, for the first time."
Richard Berger, Art, Design, Media; The Higher Education Academy, UK

  • What is media theory?
  • How do media affect our actions, opinions and beliefs?
  • In what ways do media serve powerful political and economic interests?
  • Is media consumerism unhealthy or is it empowering?
Key Themes in Media Theory provides a thorough and critical introduction to the key theories of media studies. It is unique in bringing together different schools of media theory into a single, comprehensive text, examining in depth the ideas of key media theorists such as Lasswell, McLuhan, Hall, Williams, Barthes, Adorno, Baudrillard and Bourdieu.

Using up-to-date case studies the book embraces media in their everyday cultural forms – music, internet, film, television, radio, newspapers and magazines – to enable a clearer view of the ‘big picture’ of media theory.

In ten succinct chapters Dan Laughey discusses a broad range of themes, issues and perspectives that inform our contemporary understanding of media production and consumption. These include:

  • Behaviourism and media effects
  • Feminist media theory
  • Postmodernity and information society
  • Political economy
  • Media consumerism
With images and diagrams to illustrate chapter themes, examples that apply media theory to media practice, recommended reading at the end of every chapter, and a useful glossary of key terms, this book is the definitive guide to understanding media theory.
