Summary

Scholars have long recognized the media’s role in shaping and reflecting the way we see the world, ourselves, and others. In particular, they have understood that ‘the media’ plays a vital part in the policing and construction of gender. Moreover, as new types of media proliferate, and become increasingly important in our daily lives, addressing the sometimes difficult questions surrounding the relationship between gender and the media is more important than ever.

Now, this new four-volume collection from Routledge’s acclaimed Critical Concepts in Media and Cultural Studies series enables users readily to access and make sense of the essential texts of gender-and-media scholarship. The collection is organized into four parts. Volume I (‘Body Counts’) assembles research on women’s absence in a range of media from around the world. Volume II (‘Representing Gender’) gathers together crucial texts on gender representations and stereotypes in the media. Volume III (‘Gender and Media Uses’), meanwhile, brings together the best research which, rather than surveying what the media does to people, explores how they use, navigate, and contest it. The final volume (‘Occupational Status, Experience, and Ownership’) presents key research which seeks to examine where men and women are placed in media organizations, how they experience these positions, and what impact they might have on media content.

Fully indexed and with an introduction newly written by the editor, Gender and the Media is an indispensable reference resource for researchers and students.
