Synopsis

Incisive analyses of mass media - including such forms as talk shows, MTV, the Internet, soap operas, television sitcoms, dramatic series, pornography, and advertising - enable this provocative new edition of Gender, Race and Class in Media to engage students in critical mass media scholarship.



Issues of power related to gender, race, and class are integrated into a wide range of articles examining the economic and cultural implications of mass media as institutions, including the political economy of media production, textual analysis, and media consumption. Throughout, Gender, Race and Class in Media examines the mass media as economic and cultural institutions that shape our social identities, especially in regard to gender, race, and class.



A comprehensive introductory section outlines the book's integrated approach to media studies, which incorporates three distinct but related areas of investigation: the political economy of production, textual analysis, and audience response. All new and classic readings in this Fourth Edition have been edited for maximum accessibility. Together with new section introductions by Dines and Humez, the readings provide a comprehensive critical introduction to media studies.
