Reading television by John Fiske( Book )

92 editions published between 1978 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 1,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How is it that television has come to play such an important role in our culture? What does TV tell us, and how do we make sense of its content? How does what's on telly relate to the culture of the people watching it? What is it that we find so satisfying in the format of TV crime shows, or in quiz or sports programmes, that we enjoy watching them again and again? Reading Television addresses these questions, providing a sympathetic but systematic method of analysis from which critical readings of television can be made."

Uses of television by John Hartley( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does television function within society? Why have both its programmes and its audiences been so widely denigrated? Taking inspiration from Richard Hoggarts classic study The Uses of Literacy, John Hartleys new book is a lucid defence of the place of television in our lives, and of the usefulness of television studies. Hartley re-conceptualizes television as a transmodern medium, capable of reuniting government, education and media, and of creating a new kind of cultural teaching which facilitates communication across social and geographical boundaries. He provides a historical framework for the development of both television and television studies, his focus ranging from an analysis of the early documentary Housing Problems, to the much-overlooked cultural impact of the refrigerator

"Television. Love it or hate it, watching it is still the most popular pastime ever. It reflects and shapes our knowledge of contemporary life across the economic, political, social, and cultural spectrum, and yet TV is still among the most criticized phenomena of modern life." "This book, written by one of television's experts, invites us to explore television's most controversial coverage and fascinating aspects: TV citizenship, live TV, "plebiscitary" shows, reality TV, synchronized sports, and TV's own history. At a time of unprecedented change in technologies and business plans, Hartley explores television's evolving place and transforming role in our knowledge-based society."--BOOK JACKET

Popular reality : journalism, modernity, popular culture by John Hartley( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular Reality is a major new study of journalism in modernity. For the first time, journalism is treated as a textual system, a "mediasphere" without which modernity's twin energies - the pursuit of freedom and comfort - could not have enjoyed their social and global reach. John Hartley provides a wealth of theoretical analysis and historical detail to reconceptualize the significance of modern journalism from the point of view of its greatest creation - popular readerships. Popular Reality traces the vital but virtual links between journalism, politics, and popular culture, showing how liberty, fraternity and equality are unthinkable without suburbia, sexualization and kissing. The book also provides a much-needed critique of academic and professional discourses on popular journalism, and provides new bridges between contemporary journalism and contemporary theory. Written with brilliance and wit, and richly illustrated from the pages and images of popular media new and old, Popular Reality presents an original, coherent and challenging vision of the postmodern public sphere that will set a new agenda for cultural studies and journalism schools alike. -- from back cover

This is the first systematic analysis of the challenge of the creative industries in a world where innovation and risk are requirements for both economic and cultural enterprise, where knowledge and ideas drive wealth creation and social modernization, and where globalization and new technologies are the material of everyday life and experience." "Thirty essays and new contextualizing chapters by leading international scholars cover several domains, including, multimedia, publishing, TV production, urban development, and games. Each of the six sections is edited by a specialist, making this a useful, engaging, and thought-provoking collection of the very best scholarship on modern creative culture."--Jacket
Digital futures for cultural and media studies by John Hartley( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his new work, Digital Futures for Cultural and Media Studies, a pioneer in the field turns his eye to the digital future, and how its transformation will also transform how it is studied. This thought-provoking analysis sets out to reorient and rethink media and cultural studies, to grapple with the mutual productivity that the digital future will continue to facilitate, while investigating some examples to see which way they are pointing, including popular journalism, the public domain, media citizenship, messaging, and the role of 'creative destruction' in the renewal of complex systems. The tools may change, Hartley argues, but media and popular culture will always engage with questions of meaning, identity, power, humankind in the context of technology, and global interaction among our dispersed and diverse species

At the heart of this book lies a reappraisal of humanities research and its use in understanding the conditions of a consumer-led society.

Media evolution has made possible the realism of the modern age-journalism -the novel and science- not to mention mass entertainment on a global scale.--[book cover]
