Beschreibungen

This edited collection offers the latest research into the reproduction of ‘hegemonic’ discourse and the ways in which the description and evaluation of social groups affects their ability to exercise cultural and political autonomy. The book examines the representations of a number of communities and social groups, both within their ‘micro-contexts’, and with reference to the economic, political, social, cultural and technological ‘macro-contexts’ in which they are embedded. The analysis highlights the connections between discourse, power, dominance and social inequality, focusing on patriarchal, capitalist and postcolonial representations and power imbalances. Based on a combination of theoretical and empirical analyses, the collection offers an array of macro-social critiques based on the analysis and critical understanding of contemporary contexts and representations, and how they contribute to political, social, economic and cultural practices.

Innovation: includes coverage of a wide range of topical issues and their media representation, for example aging and homophobiaInternational focus: offers global perspectives, including analysis of media representation from New Orleans, Russia and the UkraineInterdisciplinarity: relates the concept of community to media, cultural and discourse research; making links that may not otherwise have been apparent
“The annual MeCCSA conference is a showcase for the very best in new research and thinking in media, communication and cultural studies in UK universities.  This top class selection from the 2016 conference is a rich and stimulating set of papers, from new work on ‘populism’ to work on gender, colonialism, representations of violence and of ‘ordinary people’. The range and quality of this important collection are a tribute to the continuing vitality and innovation of the field.” (Peter Golding, Emeritus Professor, Northumbria University, UK)
