Overview

Mapping Irish Media offers up-to-date research and analysis of the Irish media by Ireland's leading experts in the field. The book is specially intended as a much-needed textbook for the fast growing numbers of media studies students in Ireland, but it is highly readable and suitable for those with a general interest in the subject. The book focuses on a wide range of media including the more traditional broadcast and print media (newspapers, radio, and television and film), and also engages with newer media such as the internet and DVD, and newer media genres such as reality TV.

Although the book is traditionally structured in sections on production, texts and audiences, the editors' intention has been to raise issues which cross-cut these different aspects. The contributors present a range of theoretical approaches, provide comparisons with the media in other countries, and consider in particular the effect of globalisation and increasing consumer choice.

The subjects covered in detail in this book are: Irish television in a global context and as social history; reality TV, cultural values and identities; the political, economic, journalistic and professional context of Irish print and broadcast media; Irish language broadcasting; characteristics of Irish films, film policy, and the meaning of male marginalisation in recent films; the information society, and ICT (information and communications technologies) consumption in schools; representation of conflict in Ireland; the changing face of crime reporting; media representations of science; use of the media by Poles in Ireland; the audience as broadcaster in community radio.
