Dear Colleagues
Issue no 124 of Media International Australia (MIA) is now available:
"Mapping Media", edited by Susan Ward and Albert Moran.
Theme editors, Susan Ward and Albert Moran, present seven diverse papers
that address the emerging and important topic of media, place and space.
Their authors canvass a range of countries (Hong Kong, Singapore, India,
China and Denmark, as well as Australia) and case studies (talkback,
formats, feature film, cinema multiplexes, locative media and community
newspapers). Their studies grapple with important dimensions of media's
constitution in global as well as local contexts, offer new
formulations, and convincingly indicate new directions for inquiry and
theory. I was particularly impressed by the detailed, careful
observation, and thoughtful, suggestive analyses that all the papers
offer-exemplary in their attention to tracing the contours of media
worlds in motion.
Abstracts and further details are available on the website:
