1.pngWalter Benjamin and the Media

Jaeho Kang

·         July 2014

·         196 pages

Walter Benjamin (1892-1940), one of the most original and perceptive thinkers of the twentieth century, offered a unique insight into the profound impact of the media on modern society. Jaeho Kang’s book offers a lucid introduction to Benjamin’s theory of the media and its continuing relevance today.

The book provides a systematic and close reading of Benjamin’s critical and provocative writings on the intersection between media - from print to electronic - and modern experience, with reference to the information industry, the urban spectacle, and theaesthetic politics. Bringing Benjamin’s thought into a critical constellation withcontemporary media theorists such as Marshall McLuhan and Jean Baudrillard, the bookhelps students understand the implications of Benjamin’s work for media studies todayand how they can apply his distinctive ideas to contemporary media culture.

Kang’s book leads to a fresh appreciation of Benjamin’s work and new insight into criticaltheoretical approaches to media. The book will be of particular interest to students andresearchers not only in media and communication studies but also in cultural studies, filmstudies and social theory, who are seeking a readable overview of Benjamin’s rich yetcomplex writings.

2.pngHeidegger and the Media

David Gunkel, Paul A. Taylor

·         July 2014

·         160 pages

The most significant philosopher of Being, Martin Heidegger has nevertheless largely been ignored within communications studies. This book sets the record straight by demonstrating the profound implications of his unique philosophical project for our understanding of today’s mediascape. The full range of Heidegger’s writing from Being and Time to his later essays is drawn upon.

Topics covered include:

-an analysis of Heidegger's theory of language and its relevance to communicationsstudies

-a critical interpretation of mass media and digital culture that draws upon Heidegger'skey concept of Dasein

-a discussion of mediated being and its objectifying tendencies

-an assessment of Heidegger's legacy for future developments in media theory

Clear explanations and accessible commentary are used to guide the reader through thework of a thinker whose notorious reputation belies the highly topical nature of his keyinsights.

In a world full of digital networks and new social media, but little critical insight,Heidegger and the Media shows how a true understanding of the media requiresfamiliarity with Heidegger’s unique brand of thinking.

David Gunkel is professor of communication at Northern Illinois University. He is the managing editor of the International Journal of Zizek Studies.

Paul A. Taylor is associate professor in the Institute of Communication Studies at the University of Leeds.His previous publications include Zizek and the Media (Polity, 2011).

3.pngVirilio and the Media

John Armitage

·         June 2012

·         160 pages

In books such as The Aesthetics of Disappearance , War and Cinema , The Lost Dimension , and The Vision Machine , Paul Virilio has fundamentally changed how we think about contemporary media culture. Virilio’s examinations of the connections between perception, logistics, the city, and new media technologies comprise some of the most powerful texts within his hypermodern philosophy.

Virilio and the Media presents an introduction to Virilio’s important media related ideas, from polar inertia and the accident to the landscape of events, cities of panic, and theinstrumental image loop of television. John Armitage positions Virilio’s essential mediatexts in their theoretical contexts whilst outlining their substantial influence on recentcultural thinking. Consequently, Armitage renders Virilio’s media texts accessible, priminghis readers to create individual critical evaluations of Virilio’s writings. The book closeswith an annotated and user-friendly Guide to Further Reading and a non-technicalGlossary of Virilio’s significant concepts.

Virilio’s texts on the media are vital for everyone concerned with contemporary mediaculture, and Virilio and the Media offers a comprehensive and up to date introduction tothe ever expanding range of his critical media and cultural works.

 

John Armitage is professor of media at Northumbria University

4.pngCastells and the Media

Philip N. Howard

·         July 2011

·         160 pages

One of the most prolific and respected scholars today, Manuel Castells has given us a new language for understanding the impact of information and communication technologies on social life.

Politicians can no longer run for office without a digital media strategy, new communication technologies are a fundamental infrastructure for the economy, and the internet has become an invaluable tool for cultural production and consumption. Yet as more of our political, economic, and cultural interaction occurs over digital media, theability to create and manipulate both content and networks becomes real power.

Castells and the Media introduces a great thinker, presents original theories about thenetwork society, and encourages readers to use these theories to help them understandthe importance of digital media and social networks in their own lives.

5.pngKittler and the Media

Geoffrey Winthrop-Young

·         January 2011

·         200 pages

With books such as and Discourse Networks Gramophone, Film, Typewriter and the collection Literature, Media, Information Systems , Friedrich Kittler has established himself as one of the world's most influential media theorists. He is also one of the most controversial and misunderstood.

Kittler and the Medi a offers students of media theory an introduction to Kittler's basic ideas. Following an introduction that situates Kittler's work against the tumultuousbackground of German 20th-century history (from the Second World War and the culturalupheaval of the late 1960s to reunification), the book provides succinct summaries ofKittler's early discourse-analytical work inspired by French post-structuralism, his media-related theorising and his most recent writings on cultural techniques and the notationsystems of Ancient Greece.

This clear and engaging overview of a fascinating theorist will be welcomed by studentsand scholars alike of media, communication and cultural studies.

6.pngZizek and the Media

Paul A. Taylor

·         December 2010

·         192 pages

·         Slavoj Zizek reaches the parts of the media that other theorists cannot. With sources ranging from Thomas Aquinas to Quentin Tarantino and Desperate Housewives to Dostoyevsky, Zizek mixes high theory with low culture more engagingly than any other thinker alive today. His prolific output includes such media friendly content as a TV series (The Pervert's Guide to Cinema) a documentary movie (Zizek!) and a wealth of YouTube clips. A celebrity academic, he walks the media talk.

·         Zizek and the Media provides a systematic and approachable introduction to the mainconcepts and themes of Zizek's work, and their particular implications for the study ofthe media. The book:

·           Describes the radical nature of Zizek's media politics

·           Uses Zizekian insights to expose the profound intellectual limitations of conventional approaches to the media

·           Explores the psychoanalytical and philosophical roots of Zizek's work

·           Provides the reader with Zizekian tools to uncover the hidden ideologies of everyday media content;

·         Explains the ultimate seriousness that underlies his numerous jokes.

·         As likely to discuss Homer's Springfield as Ithaca, Zizek is shown to be the ideal guide fortoday's mediascape.
