Media and Cultural Theory is an ideal guidebook for undergraduates studying a range of Media and Cultural Studies courses. Covering over thirty theorists, the book is organised into ten chapters, each focusing on a specific theoretical strand. Alongside more traditional forms like film, television and music, the book also makes reference to Facebook, YouTube and MySpace. For the visual learner, each chapter is accompanied by original illustrations that explore some of the more abstract theoretical concepts. Media and Cultural Theory is also useful for students embarking on independent research projects as it contains short synopses of key texts and bibliographical details for further reading.
