About this Book

Cultural Diversity and Global Media explores the relationship between the media and multiculturalism.

  • Summarises and critically discusses current approaches to multiculturalism and the media from a global perspecive
  • Explores both the theoretical debates and empirical findings on multiculturalism and the media
  • Assumes the new perspective of mediation of cultural diversity, which critically combines elements of previous theories in order to gain a better understanding of the relationship between the media and cultural diversity
  • Explores media 'moments' of production, representation and consumption, while incorporating arguments on their shifting roles and boundaries
  • Examines separately the role of the internet, which is linked to many changes in patterns of media production, representation and to increased possibilities for diasporic and transnational communication
  • Contains pedagogical features that enable readers to understand and critically engage with the material, and draws upon and reviews an extensive bibliography, providing a useful reference tool.
