More About the Author

Dr Dan Laughey is a Senior Lecturer in Media Theory at Leeds Metropolitan Univeristy.

Dan's main interests centre on media theory, and more broadly, the long history of media thought. His current work is engaged in issues around so-called 'new digital media' (the inverted commas signal his doubts about the socio-political novelty of many twenty-first-century media developments, Web 2.0 included); untangling long-standing traditions of research and debate on media effects and influences; exploring the relationship between media and (psychic) mediums; and critically evaluating sports media, especially sports rights.

Previously, he has written extensively on the role of music media in young people's lives

Dan currently has many books published in the Media Theory area.

It's long but contains a range of theories and information. It is especially good to reference in the A2 coursework task.

An Introduction for First-Year Students 24 Jan. 2014
By Ulrich Gdhler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dan Laughey teaches media theory and media education at Leeds Metropolitan University. He is the author of another introduction “Key Themes in Media Studies” and did research on Pop Music. “Media Studies: Theories and Approaches” is an introduction probably targeted at first-year students. Laughey presents a couple of key question and perspectives on media in order to raise interest in the new discipline. Laughey assumes his readers do not come from a literary studies or humanities background. The book seems to fit quite well in a curriculum for students of marketing. The more philosophical aspects in the chapter on semiotics for example are not dealt with in depth.
Laughey presents ideas from authors as diverse as Marshall McLuhan, Walter Benjamin, Pierre Bourdieu, Jürgen Habermas, and Stuart Hall. Obviously Laughey can only scratch on the surface. “Media Studies” appear as the apolitical and uncritical version of Cultural Studies which has lost the relation with critical and social theory. The theories of critical thinkers such as Stuart Hall are presented with little political context.
This is the book you can turn to when you plan to invest not more than two days of study in learning about Media Theory.
