China turned on : television, reform, and resistance by James Lull( )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years following the Cultural Revolution saw the arrival of television as part of China's effort to 'modernize' and open up to the West. Endorsed by the Deng Xiaoping regime as a 'bridge' between government and the people, television became at once the official mouthpiece of the Communist Party and the most popular form of entertainment for Chinese people living in the cities. But the authorities failed to realize the unmatched cultural power of television to inspire resistance to official ideologies, expectations, and lifestyles. The presence of television in the homes of the urban Chinese strikingly broadened the cultural and political awareness of its audience and provoked the people to imagine better ways of living as individuals, families, and as a nation. Originally published in 1991, set within the framework of China's political and economic environment in the modernization period, this insightful analysis is based on ethnographic data collected in China before and after the Tiananmen Square disaster. From interviews with leading Chinese television executives and nearly one hundred families in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Xian, the author outlays how Chinese television fosters opposition to the government through the work routines of media professionals, television imagery, and the role of critical, active audience members
Popular music and communication( Book )

34 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and Turkish and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young people all over the world know how powerfully music communicates. Yet popular music was neglected as an area of scholarly inquiry in communication and media studies until late in the last decade. The appearance of the first edition of James Lull's edited collection of essays Popular Music and Communication was a pioneering effort that helped introduce and legitimize the serious study of popular music and its relation to social and cultural interaction. Now the editor has assembled an expanded second edition of Popular Music and Communication. Core essays from the first edition by scholars such as Simon Frith and Larry Grossberg have been thoroughly revised and updated. Fascinating new articles appear on subjects such as the communicative potential of modern music recording technologies, popular music and social dance, the visual pleasure of music video, how musicians themselves articulate their communicative intention, disruption caused by popular music in the political upheavals of Eastern Europe and the cultural roles of popular music among Vietnamese immigrants in the United States

Media scandals : morality and desire in the popular culture marketplace by James Lull( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When personal desire goes beyond moral boundaries in the lives of public figures, a media scandal may not be far behind. But media today can make anyone with the right story a subject for scandal. The media routinely invades privacy in search of a scandal, turning secrets into narratives that ignite widespread attention. The media scandal has become a cornerstone of contemporary journalism, and a controversial trend in media performance overall. This is the first volume to evaluate scandal as a mass-mediated, globalized phenomenon. Top scholars examine how institutions and personalities ranging from politics, religion and big business to TV talkshows, sports, and popular music, become converted into scandalous commodities that drive tabloids, trash TV and "respectable" media too. By exploring how scandals fuel mass media and popular culture, this timely book will stimulate much discussion about this fascinating subject. -- Publisher description

The language of life : how communication drives human evolution by James Lull( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Communication in its most basic form -- the sending of signals and exchange of messages within and between organisms -- is the heart of evolution. From the earliest life-forms to Homo sapiens, the great chain of communication drives the evolutionary process and is the indispensable component of human culture. That is the central message of The Language of Life. In this unique perspective on both the biological evolution of life and the human development of culture, James Lull and Eduardo Neiva explore the totality of communication processes that create and sustain biological equilibrium and social stability. The authors, two international authorities on communication and culture, argue that this ubiquitous connectivity is the elemental unity of life. Introducing a new subdiscipline -- evolutionary communication -- the authors analyze the core domains of life -- sheer survival, sex, culture, morality, religion, and technological change -- as communications phenomena. What emerges from their analysis is a brilliant interpretation of life interconnected through communication from the basic molecular level to the most sophisticated manifestations of culture. Challenging the boundaries of conventional approaches to cultural analysis, The Language of Life presents an original and engaging view of evolution and an encouraging prognosis for our collective future."--Publisher's description
Public speaking : the evolving art by Stephanie J Coopman( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public speaking : the evolving art is the first book and integrated technology package to meet the expectations of today's students while both preserving and offering innovative variations on the well-respected traditions of public speaking instruction. Throughout the text, readers benefit from the examples of four peer mentors, real people who have successfully completed the public speaking course, via short video segments designed to bring concepts and strategies to life. Public speaking : the evolving art uniquely addresses the way we live in today's increasingly digital, media-saturated society "from the abundance of information and communication options available to us, to our multi-tasking behaviour and non-linear, visual orientation" with a friendly, conversational style that draws on popular culture and current events to introduce students to the ever-changing environment of public speaking."--Publisher description

In famiglia, davanti alla TV by James Lull( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in Italian and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La centralità del lavoro James Lull risiede nella capacità di indagare le audience mediali nella loro dimensione sociale: l'attenzione è posta cioè non tanto su come i media influenzano il pubblico, ma piuttosto su come il pubblico utilizza i contenuti mediali nella vita quotidiana. La comparsa in Italia di questa raccolta, punto di riferimento per tutti coloro che sono interessati all'analisi dell'audience come soggetto comunicativo, rappresenta una tappa fondamentale nella giovane tradizione italiana di ricerca sui media e sulla comunicazione in generale, nonché un importante tassello nella conoscenza di paradigmi di ricerca ormai ineludibili.
