Media and Society explores the relationship between the media, their institutions and the world we live in, examining how they are connected and how society and the media affect each other.

The book analyses representations of the world found in films, television, advertisements, news and online to understand the impact of the media in the contemporary world. The sixth edition explores several themes throughout the text, including the contradictory nature of the media and the psychological concerns of the media, to provide clear explanations of complex theories and ideas.

New to this Edition:
  • New author, Sarah Casey brings experience in digital technologies and social media…
  • New chapter 17 on Digital Television and Interactive Narratives exploring emerging and evolving narrative forms including streamed television and interactive gaming.

  • New and updated case studies including:
  • Self-representation in photographs—‘selfies’
  • Television, algorithmic culture and surveillance
  • University and students – media, law and humour
  • Banksy – street art, anonymity and culture jamming
  • UnREAL and reality TV
  • Celebrity “activism”: celanthropy, the Half the Sky movement, and the need to be seen to “care”
  • Star-celebrity profile: George and Amal Clooney, and the transmission of culture values

Updated examples to encourage students to reflect further on the issues discussed in each chapter, including:
  • Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner at the Victoria’s Secret runway show.
  • Bruce Jenner coming out as transgender woman, Caitlyn Jenner.
  • Jonathan Thurston sharing a moment of parental intimacy with his daughter during the celebration of the NRL grand final win.
  • Kanye West and his Twitter appeal to Mark Zuckerberg to help him financially by investing a billion dollars in his novel business plans.
