Descriptions du produit

Seventy-five years after the infamous broadcast, does 'War of the Worlds' still matter? This book answers with a resounding 'yes'! Contributors revisit the broadcast event in order to reconsider its place as a milestone in media history, and to explore its role as a formative event for understanding citizens' media use in times of crisis. Uniquely focused on the continuities between radio's «new media moment and our contemporary era of social media, the collection takes 'War of the Worlds' as a starting point for investigating key issues in twenty-first-century communication, including: the problem of misrepresentation in mediated communication; the importance of social context for interpreting communication; and the dynamic role of listeners, viewers and users in talking back to media producers and institutions. By examining the «crisis» moment of the original broadcast in its international, academic, technological, industrial, and historical context, as well as the role of contemporary new media in ongoing «crisis events, this volume demonstrates the broad, historical link between new media and crisis over the course of a century.

Why a 1938 Broadcast Still Matters Today 15 novembre 2013
Par Donna L. Halper - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Every professor of media criticism or media history should get a copy of this new book. I am certainly glad I did, and I plan to adopt it for one of my media analysis courses. "War of the Worlds to Social Media" is a collection of essays from some of the best-known and most respected experts on the history of the mass media; its thesis is that the phenomenon that took place in 1938 when "War of the Worlds" was first broadcast on radio is still relevant to the study of today's modern media. The book provides a multitude of perspectives on the ability of a mass medium to influence the audience and change public perception of current events. Included in the book's 12 chapters are such topics as a historical look at the "War of the Worlds" hoax; the influence of Howard Stern through the lens of what he said on 9/11; how bloggers and Twitter covered breaking news stories in several countries; and how easy it is for contemporary radio or TV or social media to perpetrate a hoax on the audience. While the book is well-suited for academics, it is generally very readable-- anyone who is interested in the media's influence on the culture will find it a useful and thought-provoking volume, one that contributes to the exploration of the role of media in our lives. I commend the authors for showing that traditional media (like radio and TV) and modern media (like Twitter) continue to impact us both positively and negatively-- they can be excellent sources of accurate information, but in some cases, they can also misinform and mislead us. While this book is not the last word on the subject, nor should it be, it makes a compelling case for the importance of media analysis and a healthy skepticism for what we see, hear, and read.
