In this lecture, Graeme Turner will discuss the core arguments made in his new book, Re-Inventing the Media. The scale of the changes to the production, distribution and consumption of the media, he suggests, has been of such a dimension that they amount to nothing less than a re-invention of the media. However, much of the focus of contemporary media studies has tended to be restricted to arguments about globalisation, and about the impact of technological change. In this lecture, Graeme Turner argues that there is more to it than that, and that media studies needs to take a broader account of what the contemporary media have become, how they are structured, and how they are used in their varying contexts around the globe.
