Overview


An introductory text that provides an overview of the "mediasphere," Media and Journalism: New Approaches to Theory and Practice, Second Edition, demonstrates how understanding media can inform a student's knowledge of journalism--and how understanding journalism can inform a student's knowledge of media.

Drawing on current theories of the media, authors Jason Bainbridge, Nicola Goc, and Liz Tynan integrate media theory with journalistic practice, providing students with practical instruction in how to write journalistic pieces.

This book is divided into six parts, with the focus becoming progressively broader--from journalism and news writing, to the contexts in which they operate, to the larger mediasphere, to the media industries themselves, and finally to the contexts in which these industries function. This organization encourages students to follow the flow of information and ideas from news production through to dissemination and negotiation, revealing how important journalism and media studies are to each other.

FEATURES

* Offers a blend of contemporary and classic case studies (e.g., Iraqi blogging and the War of the Worlds radio broadcast), providing students with a wide range of perspectives

* "Tools" sections at the end of each Part provide students with practical insights into interviewing, writing feature articles and media releases, and textual analysis, also highlighting key points

* Key terms: Mediasphere--thousands of texts connected to each other in subtle and obvious ways
