Media Magazine: Issue 59

I managed to miss updating the blog when Media Magazine: Issue 59 was published back in February. I have no excuse other than I’ve been working on a couple of pretty large writing projects that have kept me very very busy (see previous post).

So, better late than never – the ever brilliant Media Magazine contains diverse articles on topics such as the context of a post-truth world, The Bake Off and Barbie!

Full contents list below.

Writing Text Books

Sadly, the blog has been pretty quiet this year. This is not because there haven’t been loads of media issues and debates that have been worth talking about – quite the opposite. What with Trump and the Bake Off; Brangelina being no-more and Pepsi’s PR faux pas; the post-truth world, the rising confidence and belligerence in the tabloid press and the near hysterical approaches to tragic events in broadcast and social media, there’s been a lot to keep any student of the media and culture occupied in the past year. There are loads of blog-posts I’d like to have posted but I’ve been occupied with a pretty big project – co-writing a text book.

AQA A Level Media Studies books

The AS/Year 1 Media Studies book will soon be ‘on the shelves’ (or on Amazon) and Elspeth (Stevenson) and I are currently working on the A Level/Year 2 book which should be published later next academic year.  Once this second book is complete, I’ll get back to posting more blog entries. I’ve continued updating the topic resources and have tried to keep Facebook and Twitter as up to date as I can – there are loads of links there to be going on with!!

Media Magazine: Issue 58

Issue 58 of Media Magazine is full of wonderful things – from The Witch to Stranger Things with Brexit, music streaming and sports media providing a real insight into some of the key media issues and debates. I took a brief look at the way technology has driven media developments that have bough about real social change. How powerful is the media? Very!
