This book explores current debates about media, power and change from a wide variety of critical approaches and traditions. Sharing a common set of concerns which are mobilised to defend core societal values – including social justice, equality, fairness, care for the other and humanity – authors raise questions about how the omnipresent media can contribute to the materialisation of these core values, and how it can sometimes work against them. Addressing issues such as rethinking social change, mediatisation and regulation, the authors demonstrate how the role of the critical media and communication scholar merits and requires (self-)reflection. Critical voices matter, but they also face structural limitations.
