9780761934288: Media and Mediation: Volume I (Communication Processes)

This volume is devoted to understanding the politics in, and of, communication. The contributors explore the political terrain on which various processes of communication unfold, as well as investigating the political configurations of communication processes. Through conceptual articulations, theoretical constructs and empirical data, the volume addresses such questions as: how fruitful is communication as a concept? What types of insights does it yield? and Do these insights emanate from academic engagements or from practices within society?

About the Author:

Bernard Bel is a research engineer currently working at Laboratoire Parole et Langage, Université de Provence, a speech research laboratory of the French National Centre for Scientific Research, Paris. Earlier, he was a member of the Groupe Intelligence Artificielle, Marseille II University. Between 1994 and 1998, he was deputed to Centre de Sciences Humaines (CSH), New Delhi, to carry on projects in musicology and sociocultural anthropology. He has published numerous articles on both subjects and is currently involved in social activism for an improvement of birth practices in French-speaking countries, both as the webmaster of the Naissance portal http://naissance.ws and the secretary of Alliance Francophone pour l’Accouchement Respecté http:/ /www.afar.info.



Jan Brouwer recently retired as Professor of Cultural Anthropology from the North-Eastern Hill University in Shillong. He is presently Professor of Anthropology at the University School of Design, University of Mysore and Honorary Director at the Centre for Advanced Research on Indigenous Knowledge Systems (CARIKS), Mysore. He has many published works to his credit and is currently working on the concept of autonomy and death as a social relation.



Biswajit Das is Associate Professor at the Department of Sociology, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. He has over two decades of teaching experience and specialized research in communication studies, during which he was also a visiting fellow at the Universities of Windsor, Canada and Hawaii, USA. His research has been supported by various foundations and institutions in India and abroad such as Indo-French Scholarship, Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute, the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies and the Charles Wallace Trust.



Vibodh Parthasarathi, an independent communication theorist and policy consultant based in New Delhi, maintains an interest in the political economy of communication and comparative media practice. His work has gained support from the Charles Wallace India Trust, Charles Leopold Mayer Foundation, Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation, India Foundation for the Arts, and the Netherlands Fellowship Programme. He has also taught at government and private universities in India, besides dabbling in documentaries. ‘Crosscurrents―A Fijian Travelogue’, his last documentary, explored the many faces of ‘reconciliation’ after the decade of coups in the tiny Pacific nation. His current research includes tracing the history of the music industry in twentieth century India.



Guy Poitevin (1934–2004) was born in Mayenne (France). After studying to become a priest and graduating in philosophy and theology, he taught for twelve years in a seminary in Western France. He settled in Pune in 1972 and later became a naturalized Indian citizen. Along with his wife Hema Rairkar, friends and associates, he set up the Village Community Development Association (VCDA, ttp://vcda.ws) in 1978 to support socio-cultural action in remote rural areas, and the Centre for Cooperative Research in Social Sciences (CCRSS, http://ccrss.ws) in 1980 for the purpose of carrying out theoretically related activities. Besides numerous articles, he has written several books in English and French, including translated works from Marathi.

Review:

Combining theoretical discussions with empirical case studies, this volume delineates the possibilities and potentials of excluded people seeking inclusion, as well as the complexities and contradictions inherent in the process.

(The Pakistan Development Review)

This book might of interest to students and scholars of media studies, history and sociology, and evolving concerns in cultural studies and public policy; also recommended for readers interested in development studies.

Book Description Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. This volume, the first in a three-book series titled Communication Processes, is devoted to understanding the politics in, and of, communication. It explores both the ground on which processes of communication unfold and the political configurations implied in communication processes. This two-pronged approach questions the preoccupation in Indian scholarship with the `deployment` of communication technology, and the `impact` of mass media, and suggests a repositioning of `communication` as an interdisciplinary domain of enquiry. Like in the ensuing volumes, the editors of this book juxtapose a pluralist universe of conceptual articulations, theoretical constructs and empirical validations. In addressing these questions, the contributors steer through, on the one hand, the modernization-inspired tradition of communication research in India—predominated by impact and reception studies—and, on the other, global trends that shaped the glut of fashionable writings—coincidental with and spurred by transnational television and the internet—during the 1990s. Printed Pages: 476. Bookseller Inventory # 028905
