9780333972472: Introducing Cultural and Media Studies: A Semiotic Approach

This second edition of the popular introductory textbook Introducing Cultural and Media Studies, has been thoroughly revised and updated for a new generation of students taking introductory courses in cultural studies and cultural analysis at a tertiary level. Clear, applied and very easy to follow, it provides a solid grounding in the key terms and theories necessary for the study of popular culture and media texts. Without underestimating the complexity of the social, this text encourages a critical and inventive attitude to cultural theory and, through its practical step-by-step approach, is very confidence-building. References and resources have been revised to include world wide web addresses, and examples are tailored to appeal to a broad international readership.

About the Author:

TONY THWAITES teaches and writes on cultural studies and literary studies at the University of Queensland. His most recent book is a study of James Joyce, Joycean Temporalities: Debts, Promises and Countersignatures (University Press of Florida, 2001).

LLOYD DAVIS is Reader in English at the University of Queensland. He is the author of a number of essays and books on literary studies. He is also one of the co-authors of Structures and Strategies: An Introduction to Academic Writing (Palgrave, 1996).

WARWICK MULES teaches and reads in cultural studies and critical theory at Central Queensland University. He has numerous publications in the area of visuality and culture.

Review:

'Focusing on visually mediated culture and linguistic discourses, and revealing all as sites of power / knowledge, interpellation and so on, this book will surely seize the imagination of new undergraduates. It will prove helpful to teachers, too, not least because it includes comprehensive exercises and further activities within each chapter. It could therefore constitute a complete course resource.' - Times Higher Education Supplement
