Annotation
Understanding alternative media by Olga G Bailey( )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This clear and concise text offers a one-stop guide through the complex political, social and economic debates that surround alternative media and provides a fresh and insightful look at the renewed importance of this form of communication." "Combing diverse case studies from countries including the UK, North America and Brazil, the authors propose an original theoretical framework to help understand the subject. Looking at both 'old' and 'new' media, the book argues for the importance of an alternative media and suggests a political agenda as a way of broadening its scope." "Understanding Alternative Media is valuable reading for students in media, journalism and communications studies, researchers, academics, and journalists."--Jacket
Towards a sustainable information society : deconstructing WSIS by Nico Carpentier( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Information Society is one of the recurrent imaginaries to describe present-day structures, discourses and practices. Within its meaning is enshrined the promise of a better world, sometimes naively assuming a technological deus ex machina, in other cases hoping for the creation of policy tools that will overcome a diversity of societal divides. With the two-phased World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), the United Nations attempted to stimulate the development of such tools. Simultaneously, the WSIS is a large-scale experiment in multistakeholderism. The objective was to create a
Media and participation : a site of ideological-democratic struggle by Nico Carpentier( )

23 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Participation has become fashionable again, but at the same time it has always played a crucial role in our contemporary societies, and it has been omnipresent in a surprisingly large number of societal fields. In the case of the media sphere, the present-day media conjuncture is now considered to be the most participatory ever, but media participation has had a long and intense history. To deal with these paradoxes, this book looks at participation as a structurally unstable concept and as the object of a political-ideological struggle that makes it oscillate between minimalist and maximalist versions"--Page 4 of cover

23 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To increase our understanding of the pervasiveness and destructiveness of the institution of war, we need to mobilize all possible frameworks of knowledge.

Communication and discourse theory : collected works of the Brussels Discourse Theory Group by Leen Van Brussel( )

17 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume gathers the work of the Brussels Discourse Theory Group, a group of critical media and communication scholars who deploy discourse theory as a theoretical backbone and any analytical research perspective. Drawing on a variety of case studies, ranging from the politics of reality TV to the representation of populism, the book highlights both the radically contingent nature and the hegemonic workings of media and communication practices. The book shows the value and applicability of discourse-theoretical analysis (DTA) within the field of media and communication studies
Audience transformations : shifting audience positions in late modernity by Nico Carpentier( )

29 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 21st century there are novel configurations of user practices and technological capabilities that are altering the way we understand and trust media organizations and representations, how we participate in society, and how we construct our social relations. This book embeds these transformations in asocietal, cultural, technological, economic and historical context, avoiding a naive privileging of technology as the main societal driving force, but also avoiding themedia-centric reduction of society to the audiences that are situated within
The social construction of death : interdisciplinary perspectives by Leen Van Brussel( )

21 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thanatological research in the social sciences and the humanities acknowledges that death is culturally and socially embedded. The idea of the social construction of death has been taken on board, albeit slowly, by the social and cultural study of death, but explicit reflections on the underlying ontologies and epistemologies of this paradigm remain scarce. This edited volume aims to strengthen the paradigmatic reflections about the social construction of death in thanatology and contribute to a theoretical reinforcement of the field. It also puts death and dying more explicitly on the agenda of social constructionist and social constructivist research in general, arguing that the study of death is important for these approaches. The thirteen contributions gathered in this volume, written by well-established scholars from a variety of disciplines (including sociology, anthropology, media and cultural studies, and political sciences), theorise the social construction of death and dying, and deploy it to analyse a wide variety of meaning-making practices in societal fields such as ethics, politics, media, medicine and family --
Cyprus and its conflicts : representations, materialities and cultures( )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mediterranean island of Cyprus is the site of enduring political, military, and economic conflict. This interdisciplinary collection takes Cyprus as a geographical, cultural and political point of reference for understanding how conflict is mediated, represented, reconstructed, experienced, and transformed. Through methodologically diverse case studies of a wide range of topics--including public art, urban spaces, and print, broadcast and digital media--it assembles an impressively multifaceted perspective, one that provides broad insights into the complex interplay of culture, conflict, and identity"--Back cover
Trans-reality television : the transgression of reality, genre, politics, and audience by Sofie van Bauwel( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""This collection offers an energetic and illuminating range of explorations into what is involved in thinking about generic shifts and generic contexts. It does so in a period characterized both by radical transformations in the recipes and modes for mediating reality and by provocative questions about just what kind of datum points for representation 'reality' provides. The writings here will provide an excellent encouragement toward further debate."--John Corner. University of Leeds" "In Trans-Reality Television: The Transgression of Reality, Genre. Politics, and Audience, the contributors examine the phenomenon of reality television as a tool to reflect on societal and mediated transformations and transgressions. While some delve deep into the theoretical issues, others approach the topic at hand through empirical studies of specific reality television formats and programs. The chapters in this volume are divided into four sections, all of which deal with how we see the fluid social at work in reality television through the trans-real, trans-politics, trans-genre, and trans-audience. Stressing the concept of the trans-real, the first section explores the complex construction of reality in reality television. The second section, which deals with the concept of trans-politics, offers a diversity of perspectives on the articulation and rearticulation of politics and the political. The chapters comprising the third section analyze how the modern conceptualizations of genre and format are transcended. Finally, the last section articulates the concept of trans-audience, using case studies of particular audiences and a study of reality television celebrities. Trans-Reality Television concludes by returning to the sense and nonsense of the use of 'post' concepts."--Jacket
Discourse theory and cultural analysis : media, arts and literature( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book's main objective is to expand discourse theory into the realm of the cultural, by focusing on specific discursive machines and mechanisms in the fields of the media and the arts and literature. The themes vary from war to gaming culture, from new realist poetry to Mario Toral's mural painting, and from literary history to Mexican cinema. The greater number of chapters in this volume deals with a variety of media, including television, newspapers, film, ads, press communiques, online forums and videogames. Content-wise these chapters are primarily discourse-theoretical analyses of a wide range of conflicts and their representations. Although the application of discourse theory is virtually non-existent within the realm of Literary and Art Studies, a substantial number of chapters introduce key discourse-theoretical notions as antagonism and agonism, hegemony, and indeterminacy into these fields."--Jacket
Iconoclastic controversies : a photographic inquiry into antagonistic nationalism by Nico Carpentier( )

6 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book combines photography and written text to analyse the role of memorials and commemoration sites in the construction of antagonistic nationalism. Taking Cypriot memorializations as a case study, it shows how these memorials often support, but sometimes also undermine, the discursive-material assemblage of nationalism
The discursive-material knot : Cyprus in conflict and community media participation by Nico Carpentier( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The theoretical framework of the discursive-material knot consists out of a non-hierarchical ontology of the interactions of the discursive and the material, articulating the assemblages that are driven by this ontological setting as restless and contingent, sometimes incessantly changing shapes and sometimes being deeply sedimented. This book acknowledges the importance of discourse studies, in having produced a better understanding of the socio-political role of frameworks of intelligibility, and of materialism theory in highlighting the importance of the agentic role of materials. Still, the combination of the discursive and the material requires our attention in a much more fundamental way; that is where this book's first platform aims to provide a contribution. These ontological-theoretical reflections are not produced in a void, but they are put to work in this book, first in platform two, which consists of a discursive-material re-reading of three theoretical fields, dealing with practices that are all highly relevant in contemporary democracies: participation, community media and conflict (transformation). Finally, in the third platform, this book turns its attention to a particular social reality, analyzing the logic of the discursive-material knot in the particular context of the Cyprus Problem. This case study fills a gap by bringing community media and conflict transformation together, through the analysis of the role of the Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC), and its webradio MYCYradio, in contributing to the transformation of antagonism into agonism. Deploying a discursive-material analysis to study the participation and agonization (and their articulation) in CCMC/MYCYradio shows the complexity and richness of conflict transformation processes, in combination with the importance of organizations such as CCMC/MYCYradio for the betterment of society" -- Provided by publisher
Critical perspectives on media, power and change by Ilija Tomanić Trivundža( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores current debates about media, power and change from a wide variety of critical approaches and traditions. Sharing a common set of concerns which are mobilised to defend core societal values - including social justice, equality, fairness, care for the other and humanity - authors raise questions about how the omnipresent media can contribute to the materialisation of these core values, and how it can sometimes work against them. Addressing issues such as rethinking social change, mediatisation and regulation, the authors demonstrate how the role of the critical media and communication scholar merits and requires (self-)reflection. Critical voices matter, but they also face structural limitations
‘This in-between’: How families talk about death in relation to severe brain injury and disorders of consciousness by Leen Van Brussel( )

Introduction by Benjamin::0000-0002-6118-8444::600 De Cleen( )

1 edition published in 2019 in Undetermined and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction to the edited volume Communication and Discourse Theory aims to reflect on the interaction between discourse theory and the study of media and communication, as well as the Brussels Discourse Theory Group's contribution to it. The chapter starts with a summary of the main tenets of Laclau and Mouffe's discourse theory, and touches upon its methodological/analytical translation in discourse-theoretical analysis (DTA). The next main part of the chapter discusses how discourse theory has been put to use for the analysis of communication and media, distinguishing four thematic areas: (1) communication, rhetoric, and media strategies; (2) discourses in media organizations; (3) media identities, practices, and institutions; and (4) media and agonistic democracy. In the next part, two areas that are currently being developed in the group, and have thus far remained under-developed, are singled out theoretically as well as empirically, from a discourse-theoretical perspective. This includes the relation between the discursive and the material, and the relation between media, communication, and audiences. Finally, the chapter provides a short overview of the other chapters in this book
