REVIEW: A thoughtful approach to teaching media
Reinventing the Media, by Graeme Turner. London: Routledge. 2015. 158 pages. ISBN 978-1-138-02070-2
AS A member of a School of Communication Studies seeking to refresh its curricula, the publication of Graeme Turner’s book Re-Inventing the Media is very timely. According to the publishers, Turner ‘takes on the task of rethinking how media studies approaches the whole of the contemporary mediascape.’ This statement should not lead the reader to expect that Turner is arguing for a root and branch overturning of how we approach and teach the media. Instead. it can be argued that this is rather a sober ‘re-think’ that seeks to address both the elements of change and continuity in teaching communication or media studies today.
