Critical Media Studies

Institutions, Politics, and Culture
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Andrew Calabrese, University of Colorado, Series Editor



This series covers a broad range of critical research and theory about media in the modern world. It includes work about the changing structures of the media, focusing particularly on work about the political and economic forces and social relations which shape and are shaped by media institutions, structural changes in policy formation and enforcement, technological transformations in the means of communication, and the relationships of all of these to public and private cultures worldwide. Historical research about the media and intellectual histories pertaining to media research and theory are particularly welcomed. Emphasizing the role of social and political theory for informing and shaping research about communications media, Critical Media Studies addresses the politics of media institutions at national, subnational, and transnational levels. The series also includes short, synthetic texts on key thinkers and concepts in critical media studies.
