Product Description


Extensive, well-structured, and eloquently written, the second edition of Jane Stokes' How to Do Media and Cultural Studies is an indispensable introduction to the theories, practices, and methods of media and cultural analysis. Students wanting to attain an understanding of how to present their work and how they might come to know and do media and cultural studies must read this book.
John Armitage
Professor of Media, Northumbria University

This no nonsense, up-to-the-moment text cuts-to the-chase about how to conduct a research study. Jane Stokes effortlessly and expertly takes the reader by the hand and walks them through the principles, methods and practices of executing 'good' media and cultural studies. If any book can relieve anxieties about actually doing research this is it. Accessible, informed, incredibly useful.
Professor Simon Cottle
School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, Cardiff University

This is the best book available for students facing up to the challenge of writing a dissertation about media and communication. Jane Stokes introduces a wide range of methods for researching audiences, industries and texts, and guides the student through detailed discussion of well-chosen case studies and examples.
Graham Meikle
University of Stirling

She moved to Los Angeles in 1989 to study for a PhD in Communication Theory and Research at the Annenberg School of Communication, USC. Jane has made research methods a teaching specialism, blending American and European approaches to communication, media and cultural studies.

Format: Paperback
This is the book that students in media and cultural studies have been waiting for. It is the first book of its kind to answer all the key questions faced by students - at both undergraduate and graduate level - who are embarking on a dissertation or research in the field. The book is totally accessible and easy to understand, though it deals with quite complex subject matter. The examples are excellent and numerous and the author has a readable and enjoyable way with words. All the major research areas within media and cultural studies are included along with information about useful archives and web sites. Every student who is involved in research in these broad and popular fields will find the book invaluable.
