Overview

Geographies of Media and Communication systematically analyzes the relationship between geography and communication and shows how geographical approaches open up familiar and unfamiliar aspects of communication for analysis and discussion.

  • Introduces media and communication from a geographical viewpoint
  • Guides students through familiar themes of the study of communication towards more profound insights
  • Explores issues such as 'Deaf Geographies', 'The Time-Space of Communication', and 'The Map as an Immutable Mobile'
  • Organizes themes within a four-part structure: media in spaces, spaces in media, media in places, and places in media
  • Re-interprets the cultural turn in geography as in fact the sensitization of geographers to a wide range of theories about communication

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In presenting a ‘humbler concept, a process rather than an object’ (p. 9) Adams’ book not only seems certain to be widely read beyond an undergraduate audience, but may be more likely to develop genuinely shared connections across such a broad spectrum of scholarship.” (Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie, 1 January 2013)
