Theorising Media and Practice

Birgit Bräuchler (Redaktør) ; John Postill (Redaktør)

Although practice theory has been a mainstay of social theory for nearly three decades, so far it has had very limited impact on media studies. This book draws on the work of practice theorists such as Wittgenstein, Foucault, Bourdieu, Barth, and Shatzki and rethinks the study of media from the perspective of practice theory. Les mer

“This book is extremely thought provoking and makes an important contribution to current debates about the nature and scope of media ethnography. It includes the work of some of the most outstanding scholars working at the intersection of media studies and media ethnography, and many of the individual chapters make important contributions to the field.”  ·  Virginia Nightingale, University of Western Sydney

“This is a worthy, potentially important book, very likely to have a substantial influence in the growing interdisciplinary fields of media studies and media anthropology. It is a well conceived and timely contribution to a set of ongoing conceptual debates and is successful in both representing those debates and participating in them. It deserves to be widely read.”  ·  Eric W. Rothenbuhler, Texas A&M University
