Rethinking Media Literacy

Rethinking Media Literacy

Who creates the cultural landscape we experience? When we watch the evening news, are we receiving unrevised information straight from the day's headlines or is it positioned in such a way as to 'manufacture consent, ' as Chomsky put it? These are just two of the fascinating questions posed by the authors of this collection as they develop a new form of media literacy that encourages students to become critical readers of the media that attempts to shape their experience. This is an intriguing and wide-ranging critique that makes the perfect text for a variety of courses including curriculum studies, critical pedagogy, media studies, cultural studies and political science
