0 Rezensionen

The Anthropology of News and Journalism is the first book to explore the role of news and journalism in contemporary culture from an anthropological perspective--as a form of cultural meaning-making in its creation, content, and dissemination. Anthropology's global, comparative perspective and ethnographic methods provide powerful insights for analyzing case studies from around the world. Essays by leading scholars explore communities of professional and nonprofessional journalists. They describe news-making processes ranging from the local to the global digital environment, as well as how news is disseminated and received in a variety of cultural settings.

Contributors are S. Elizabeth Bird, Amahl Bishara, Dominic C. Boyer, Dorle Drackl , Zeynep Devrim G rsel, Jennifer Hasty, Joseph C. Manzella, Kerry McCallum, Mark Pedelty, Mark Allen Peterson, Ursula Rao, Adrienne Russell, Christina Schwenkel, Jonathan Skinner, Debra Spitulnik, Maria D. Vesperi, Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, and Leon I. Yacher.
