Media and the Information Society


Description

Examines claims that as a result of the expansion of media technologies and mediated social relationships we have witnessed the emergence of information societies. Investigates whether such societies are indicative of decisive changes in the organisation of political, economic and social life and in the conception of individual identity. Emphasis is thus upon interpreting this wider pattern of social relations and processes rather than upon the cultural expression of such changes in popular film, television and internet texts.
