Value is seldom discussed in its own right, though it is of utmost importance to our relations with media texts and cultural objects, as we constantly make judgements of various kinds with respect to them. Bolin focuses on how value is produced in contemporary media and cultural production, particularly through social relations. Discussing changes over the past two decades, Bolin emphasises the rise of digital media and the opportunities that these afford for media's production and consumption.
