9780745639253: Media Work

The media are home to an eclectic bunch of people. This book is about who they are, what they do, and what their work means to them. Based on interviews with media professionals in the United States, New Zealand, South Africa, and The Netherlands, and drawing from both scholarly and professional literatures in a wide variety of disciplines, it offers an account of what it is like to work in the media today.

Media professionals face tough choices. Boundaries are drawn and erased: between commerce and creativity, between individualism and teamwork, between security and independence. Digital media supercharge these dilemmas, as industries merge and media converge, as audiences become co-creators of content online.

The media industries are the pioneers of the digital age. This book is a critical primer on how media workers manage to survive, and is essential reading for anyone considering a career in the media, or who wishes to understand how the media are made.

Review:

"Media Work is an intricate, theoretically informed and invaluable portrait of what it is like to work professionally in today's media [...] It succeeds both as a college text and an exercise in theory" --New Media & Society

"[T]his book makes an important contribution to literature on media and on media work, and to our understanding of media and its place in contemporary society." --International Journal of Media Management

This lively and readable account demonstrates that the study of new media through the lens of labor [...] is an important and vibrant area of interdisciplinary scholarship." --The Information Society

"The book is highly recommended for students [...] The text is both easy reading and deep, with good bibliographical choices, so educators will find it inspiring, too." --Ecquid Novi
