Additional Book Details

Digital media have radically altered understandings of racism, so that an issue that has too often been assumed to belong to the past has been thrust into contemporary mainstream debates, news and popular culture. In light of the importance of traditional communications and social media to such events as Brexit in the UK and the Trump Presidency in the US, it is imperative for students of media and public discourse to examine the role played by the media in the generation, circulation and contestation of racist ideas. In Racism and Media, Gavan Titley:

Explains why racism is such a complex and contested concept
Provides a set of theoretical and analytical tools with which to interrogate how media dynamics and processes impact on racism and anti-racism
Demonstrates methods’ application through a wide range of case studies, taking in examples from the UK, US, and several European countries
Examines the rise and impact of online and social media racism
Analyses questions of freedom of speech and hate speech in relation to racism and media

This book is an essential companion for students of media, communications, sociology and cultural studies.
