Product Description


"Hartley remains one of the most fearless and original thinkers incontemporary cultural studies."
- Henry Jenkins, University of Southern California

“As so often in the past, John Hartley provides a shrewdand honest guide to the cultural and societal implications of thetechnological and social turbulence we are facing.”
- Larry Gross, University of Southern California

 “If, as the proverb suggests, we fish onlycontemplate water when removed from it, then in this important bookHartley proves himself to be a flying fish – a wonderfulanalyst of his cultural environment in its entirety, yet alwaysstill aware of the coral and culture that lies beneath. The bookoverflows with smart observations about the state of the media andof media and cultural studies as an academic field, and should beread by all who swim in these waters.”
- Jonathan Gray, University of Wisconsin

“Reading John Hartley's 'Understanding News' (1982) as astudent inspired me to do research. 'Digital Futures' rekindlesthat original excitement."
- Mark Deuze, Indiana University

"Hartley roars across disciplines to connect the digital dotsbetween cultural studies, creative industries, journalism,television and much else. This is truly ambitious scholarship whichdeserves the widest audience."
- Ian Hargreaves, Cardiff University

From the Back Cover

In his new work, Digital Futures for Cultural and MediaStudies, a pioneer in the field turns his eye to the digitalfuture, and how its transformation will also transform how it isstudied.

This thought-provoking analysis sets out to reorient and rethinkmedia and cultural studies, to grapple with the mutual productivitythat the digital future will continue to facilitate, whileinvestigating some examples to see which way they are pointing,including popular journalism, the public domain, media citizenship,messaging, and the role of ‘creative destruction’ inthe renewal of complex systems.

The tools may change, Hartley argues, but media and popularculture will always engage with questions of meaning, identity,power, humankind in the context of technology, and globalinteraction among our dispersed and diverse species.
