[Commlist] New Book: ''Economic Inequality and News Media ...''

Wed Sep 23 10:14:37 GMT 2020

New Book:
*Grisold, Andrea and Paschal Preston (Eds.) 2020 'Economic Inequality and News Media: Discourse, Power, and Redistribution'.  Oxford University. Press.*

Despite the rediscovery of the inequality topic by economists and other social scientists in recent times, relatively little is known about how economic inequality is mediated to the wider public. That is precisely where this book steps in: it examines how mainstream news media discuss, respond to, and engage with such important trends. The book addresses significant ‘blind spots’ in the two disciplinary areas most related to this book—political economy and media/journalism studies. Firstly, key issues related to economic inequalities tend to be neglected in media and journalism studies field. Secondly, mainstream economics have paid relatively little attention to the evolving scope and role of mediated communication.
