Product Description


‘Stig Hjarvard has through the last decade been a leading scholar in the emerging research on mediatization of culture and society. In this book he synthesizes his theory and makes his extensive work accessible in one English volume. He refines his institutional approach to changes in the media and in social and cultural areas that more and more take on media forms’Knut Lundby, Professor of Media and Communication, University of Oslo, Norway.

‘In this noteworthy book, Stig Hjarvard redirects theories about the power of media. Hjarvard reveals a complex and vital picture of how contemporary societies are transforming themselves under conditions of high modernity.’Gaye Tuchman, Professor of Sociology, University of Connecticut, USA.

‘Mediatization is one of the most inspired innovations in contemporary media studies, and Stig Hjarvard provides essential reading for the road ahead.’Mark Deuze, Associate Professor, Indiana University, USA.
