The fact that the mass media constitute such a ubiquitous presence in contemporary life often leads to the assumption that medium or media emerged as a specific issue only with the advent of mass media. The question of medium is today almost totally subsumed within discussions of the mass media. In this context, it is always regarded as plural. Yet the issue of the medium became a central concern of modernist art almost a century and a half ago. This collection of essays seeks to reopen this long history of exploration and engagement and to scrutinize the role of the medium in areas as diverse as modernist, contemporary, and avant-garde art, photography, cinema, and architecture, as well as in the more familiar guises of electronic media including television and computer games.

"This lively collection brings music video studies up to date and expands its analytical horizons. One of the book's great strengths is the methodological clarity of the articles assembled here, making this a very useful collection for teaching purposes. Even more impressively, this book moves beyond MTV in several important directions. It charts the international circulation of music video, provides background on understudied historical ancestors of the video clip, and introduces readers to emerging genres of audiovisual expression. This volume will be the new standard work on music video."--Will Straw, author of Cyanide and Sin: Visualizing Crime in 50's America "Medium Cool reopens the long-dormant field of music video studies in sharp and insightful ways. With a keen eye on questions of history, aesthetics, and globalization, the essays collected here lay out a bold new map for how future scholars should approach the study of music video in the post-MTV age."--Gilbert B. Rodman, author of Elvis After Elvis: The Posthumous Career of a Living Legend "Roger Beebe and Jason Middleton's Medium Cool is a valuable and timely anthology that moves the scholarly discussion of music video beyond MTV, exploring the past, present, and future of the medium. It also introduces readers to important new voices in music and media studies."--Gayle F. Wald, author of Shout, Sister, Shout! The Untold Story of Rock-and-Roll Trailblazer Sister Rosetta Tharpe
