Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This provocative new edition of Gender, Race, and Class in Media engages students with a comprehensive introduction to mass media studies. Editors Gail Dines and Jean M. Humez present new and classic readings that critically analyze some of the most pervasive and influential forms of media entertainment culture, including advertising, reality tv shows, sitcoms and dramatic series, pornography, fan and celebrity gossip websites, videogames and online social media and virtual reality enterprises. Issues of power related to gender, race, class and sexuality are integrated into a wide range of compelling articles examining the economic and cultural implications of mass media as institutions, such as the political economy of media production, textual analysis, and media consumption, including current questions raised by fan participation in production and distribution.
