Contributor(s): Drotner, Kirsten [Editor] | Livingstone, Sonia [Editor].
Publisher: Los Angeles Sage Publications 2008Description: xxi, 537 p.ISBN: 9781412928328.Subject(s): Mass media and children | Mass media and youth | Mass media --Social aspectsDDC classification: 302.23083 Summary: This essential volume brings together the work of internationally-renowned researchers, each experts in their field, in order to capture the diversity of children and young people's media cultures around the world. Why are the media such a crucial part of children's daily lives? Are they becoming more important, more influential, and in what ways? Or does a historical perspective reveal how past media have long framed children's cultural horizons or, perhaps, how families - however constituted - have long shaped the ways children relate to media? In addressing such questions, the contributors present detailed empirical cases to uncover how children weave together diverse forms and technologies to create a rich symbolic tapestry which, in turn, shapes their social relationships. At the same time, many concerns - even public panics - arise regarding children's engagement with media, leading the contributors also to inquire into the risky or problematic aspects of today's highly mediated world.
