Internationalizing "international communication" by Tsan-Kuo Chang( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International communication as a field of inquiry is not very "internationalized." It has been taken as conceptual extension or empirical application of U.S. communication. Worse yet, much of the non-west has been socialized to adopt truncated versions of Pax Americana's notion of international communication. At stake is the "subject position" of academic and cultural inquirers: Who get to ask what kind of questions? It is important to note that the quest to establish universally valid "laws" of human society with little regard for cultural values and variations seems to be running out of steam. Many lines of intellectual development are reckoning with the important dimensions of empathetic understanding and subjective consciousness. In Internationalizing "International Communication" Lee and others argue that we must reject both America-writ-large views of the world and self-defeating mirror images that reject anything American or western on the grounds of cultural incompatibility or even cultural superiority
Communication and citizenship : journalism and the public sphere in the new media age by Peter Dahlgren( Book )

37 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Communication and Citizenship addresses a question increasingly at the center of academic and journalistic deabte: to what extent are the media able to help citizens in modern societies learn more about the world, debate their responses to it, and reach informed decisions about what courses of action to take? Can the media play a role in the formation of a "public sphere" when public service broadcasting is under attack, and the popular press plays to"the market" with a steady stream of celebrity gossip and sensationalized reporting? Contributors to the volume each concentrate on one aspect of the role and future of the public sphere in the United States and Europe, both East and West. Topics discussed include American politics and television news, feminist perspectives on the public sphere, the Polish media after Stalinism, and the popular press and television in the U. K." -- Half t.p

New communication technologies : a challenge for press freedom by Colin Sparks( Book )

10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume enlarges upon questions concerning censorship and self-censorship and provides case studies as well as theoretical reflection on the relationship between new technology and media freedom. The seven essays included in this collection deal with two central contemporary problems of the mass media--freedom and democracy. The papers are: "Exit the Censor, Enter the Regulator" (Leonard R. Sussman); "Impact of New Information and Communication Technologies on Information Diversity in North America and Western Europe" (Nicholas Garnham); "The Impact of Electronic Mass Media in Sweden" (Charly Hulten); "Video-Cassette Recorders in Ghana: Impact on Press Freedom in Sub-Saharan Africa" (S.T. Kwame Boafo); "New Communication Technologies and Information Freedom in Latin America" (Rafael Roncagliolo); "New Communication Technologies and Press Freedom: A Chilean Case Study" (Fernando Reyes Matta); and "The Media as Fourth Estate: A Survey of Journalism Educators' Views" (Colin Sparks and Slavko Splichal). The first three papers are concerned with the larger picture and the larger media; the second three are concerned with the "marginal" rather than the dominant media; and the final paper deals with some of the problems of the media and democracy in terms of their staff and resources.
