Reading television by John Fiske( )

87 editions published between 1978 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reading television pushes the boundaries of television studies beyond the insights offered by sociology and psychology, into those offered by cultural studies and textual analysis. Using the tools and techniques in this book, it is possible for everyone who has access to a television set to produce illuminating studies not only of the programmes themselves, but also of the culture which produces them.

Uses of television by John Hartley( )

29 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 2,712 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

YouTube : online video and participatory culture by Jean Burgess( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"YouTube is one of the most well-known and widely discussed sites of participatory media in the contemporary online environment, and it is the first genuinely mass-popular platform for user-created video. In this timely and comprehensive introduction to how YouTube is being used and why it matters, Burgess and Green discuss the ways that it relates to wider transformations in culture, society and the economy. The book critically examines the public debates surrounding the site, demonstrating how it is central to struggles for authority and control in the new media environment. Drawing on a range of theoretical sources and empirical research, the authors discuss how YouTube is being used by the media industries, by audiences and amateur producers, and by particular communities of interest, and the ways in which these uses challenge existing ideas about cultural 'production' and 'consumption'. Rich with both concrete examples and featuring specially commissioned chapters by Henry Jenkins and John Hartley, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in the contemporary and future implications of online media. It will be particularly valuable for students and scholars in media, communication and cultural studies."--Book cover

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."--Jacket
Digital futures for cultural and media studies by John Hartley( Book )

22 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 597 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

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

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 344 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

23 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the heart of this book lies a reappraisal of humanities research and its use in understanding the conditions of a consumer-led society. Online social networks and participatory media are often still ignored by professionals, denounced in the press and banned in schools. 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]
