Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Geographies of Media and Communication systematically analyzes the relationship between geography and communication and shows how geographical approaches open up familiar and unfamiliar aspects of communication for analysis and discussion.

  • Introduces media and communication from a geographical viewpoint

  • Guides students through familiar themes of the study of communication towards more profound insights

  • Explores issues such as 'Deaf Geographies', 'The Time-Space of Communication', and 'The Map as an Immutable Mobile'

  • Organizes themes within a four-part structure: media in spaces, spaces in media, media in places, and places in media

  • Re-interprets the cultural turn in geography as in fact the sensitization of geographers to a wide range of theories about communication

Synopsis:

From the invention of the telegraph to the emergence of the Internet, communications technologies have transformed the ways that people and places relate to each other. Geographies of Media and Communication is the first textbook to treat all aspects of geography’s variegated encounter with communication.

Connecting geographical ideas with communication theories such as intertextuality, audience-centered theory, and semiotics, Paul C. Adams explores media representations of places, the spatial diffusion of communication technologies, and the power of communication technologies to transform places, and to dictate who does and does not belong in them.
