Abstract

In this Postscript to the research making up the Routledge Companion to Media and Class, David Morley notes the importance of the volume’s aim to approach the topic by analyzing specific examples and particularities situated across varied contexts, arguing that carefully grounded analysis offers more to any adequate understanding of developments in contemporary media and cultural processes that can be achieved through any kind of abstracted speculation. Morley finds the interdisciplinary spread of the work helps guard against tendencies towards media-centrism by considering media in broader contexts, which helps to more properly understand their significance. He discusses a wide variety of the chapters in relation to earlier works, and notes how the collection overall is nicely able to frame technological development and media use in a variety of different institutional, geographical and cultural settings—complex dynamics where matters of race and ethnicity, class and gender and religion intersect and are lived out.
