Prominenz In Den Medien from the Author: Thomas Schierl. Egal ob Print, Hörfunk oder TV, wir können der Permanenz von Prominenz kaum entkommen. In den vergangenen Jahren haben sich die Berichterstattung ĂŒber Prominenz und die Nachfrage nach Prominenten stark ausgeweitet. Trotz der steigenden Relevanz in den Massenmedien hat sich die Forschung diesem Untersuchungsgegenstand in nur geringem Maß angenommen. Der vorliegende Band widmet sich dem Thema aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven. Es wird ein genauerer Blick auf rechtliche, kulturelle, ökonomische wie publizistische Entwicklungen geworfen und das PhĂ€nomen der Prominenz aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln eingeordnet. Neben ĂŒberblicksartigen BeitrĂ€gen ĂŒber Angebot und Rezeption von Medienprominenz werden auch erste Analysen in ausgewĂ€hlten Teilbereichen (z.B. Sport, Musik) vorgestellt.

Transkulturelle Ffentlichkeitsakteure from the Author: Johanna Möller. Johanna Möller untersucht das kommunikative Handeln grenzĂŒberschreitend medial agierender deutscher und polnischer Eliteakteure. Gefragt wird nach Gestaltungspotenzialen in der öffentlichen politischen Kommunikation. Vorrangig auf Basis qualitativer Interviews rekonstruiert die Autorin aus der Perspektive dieser transkulturellen Öffentlichkeitsakteure Möglichkeiten, sich grenzĂŒberschreitend medial zu beteiligen und die verschiedenen Öffentlichkeiten zu prĂ€gen. So werden zum einen kommunikative Kompetenzen als Handwerkszeug öffentlich-kommunikativen Handelns und zum anderen Akteursmodi als Formen und Möglichkeiten öffentlichen Auftretens ermittelt. Solche Gestaltungspotenziale werden schließlich ĂŒber eine qualitative Medieninhaltsanalyse in charakteristische Diskurskontexte der deutsch-polnischen politischen Kommunikation eingeordnet.

Weltereignisse from the Author: Stefan Nacke. Der Band versammelt BeitrĂ€ge zu einem Thema, das in der Globalisierungsforschung in den letzten Jahren zunehmendes Interesse gefunden hat, zu dem aber noch Publikationen fehlen, die die theoretisch-vergleichende Auseinandersetzung mit dem Gegenstand vorantreiben. Hier anzuknĂŒpfen bietet sich insbesondere fĂŒr ein weltgesellschaftstheoretisches Forschungsinteresse an, dem an der Verbindung empirischer Globalisierungsforschung mit theoretischem Anspruch gelegen ist.

Celebrity Culture from the Author: Ellis Cashmore. In this fascinating and topical beginners guide, Ellis Cashmore explores the intriguing issue of celebrity culture: its origins, its meaning and its global influence. Covering such varied perspectives as fame addiction, the ‘celebrification’ of politics and celebrity fatigue, Cashmore analyzes the relationship celebrity has with commodification and the consumer society, and investigates the new media and the quest for self-perfection. Cashmore takes readers on a quest that visits the Hollywood film industry of the early twentieth century, the film set of Cleopatra in the 1970s, the dressing room of Madonna in the 1980s, the burial of Diana in the 1990s, and the Big Brother house of the early 2000s. Author of Beckham and Tyson, Cashmore collects research, theory, and case studies en route as he explores the intriguing issue of celebrity culture: its origins, its meaning, and its global influence. Including reviews of existing literature, and an outline of key contemporary topics, this absorbing book skilfully explains why we have become so captivated by the lives and loves of the celebrity and, in so doing, presents the clearest, most comprehensive, wide-ranging, and accessible account of celebrity culture to date.

Media Discourse Representation And Interaction from the Author: Mary Talbot. This lively and accessible study of media and discourse combines theoretical reflection with empirical engagement, and brings together insights from a range of disciplines. Within media and cultural studies, the study of media texts is dominated by an exclusive focus on representation. This book adds long overdue attention to social interaction. The book is divided into two sections. The first outlines key theoretical issues and concepts, including informalisation, genre hybridisation, positioning, dialogism and discourse. The second is a sustained interrogation of social interaction in and around media. Re-examining issues of representation and interaction, it critically assesses work on the para-social and broadcast sociability, then explores distinct sites of interaction: production communities, audience communities and 'interactivity' with audiences.

Routledge Handbook Of Public Communication Of Science And Technology from the Author: Massimiano Bucchi. Communicating science and technology is a high priority of many research and policy institutions, a concern of many other private and public bodies, and an established subject of training and education. Over the past few decades, the field has developed and expanded significantly, both in terms of professional practice and in terms of research and reflection. The Routledge Handbook of Public Communication of Science and Technology provides a state-of-the-art review of this fast-growing and increasingly important area, through an examination of the research on the main actors, issues, and arenas involved. In this brand-new revised edition, the book brings the reviews up-to-date and deepens the analysis. As well as substantial reworking of many chapters, it gives more attention to digital media and the global aspects of science communication, with the inclusion of four new chapters. Several new contributors are added to leading mass-communication scholars, sociologists, public-relations practitioners, science writers, and others featured herein. With key questions for further discussion highlighted in each chapter, the handbook is a student-friendly resource and its scope and expert contributors mean it is also ideal for both practitioners and professionals working in the field. Combining the perspectives of different disciplines and of different geographical and cultural contexts, this original text provides an interdisciplinary and global approach to the public communication of science and technology. It is a valuable resource for students, researchers, educators, and professionals in media and journalism, sociology, the history of science, and science and technology.

Africa In The American Imagination from the Author: Carol Magee. In the American world, the presence of African culture is sometimes fully embodied and sometimes leaves only a trace. Africa in the American Imagination: Popular Culture, Racialized Identities, and African Visual Culture explores this presence, examining Mattel’s world of Barbie, the 1996 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, and Disney World, each of which repackages African visual culture for consumers. Because these cultural icons permeate American life, they represent the broader U.S. culture and its relationship to African culture. This study integrates approaches from art history and visual culture studies with those from culture, race, and popular culture studies to analyze this interchange. Two major threads weave throughout. One analyzes how the presentation of African visual culture in these popular culture forms conceptualizes Africa for the American public. The other investigates the way the uses of African visual culture focuses America’s own self-awareness, particularly around black and white racialized identities. In exploring the multiple meanings that “Africa” has in American popular culture, Africa in the American Imagination argues that these cultural products embody multiple perspectives and speak to various sociopolitical contexts: the Cold War, Civil Rights, and contemporary eras of the United States; the apartheid and postapartheid eras of South Africa; the colonial and postcolonial eras of Ghana; and the European era of African colonization.
