Product description

Review

Praise for the first edition:

"Gauntlett’s optimism is infectious, the subject matter engaging, and, as a result, the book is difficult to put aside. It is a thoroughly pleasurable introduction to the ties between self-identities and representations of gender in media." - Anne E. Lincoln in Journal of Consumer Culture (2003)

"Brings the theory of popular culture to the widest possible audience ... Delightful and provocative." - Charlie Peverett of HERO (2002)

"The value of Gauntlett's work is his engagement with feminism and issues of masculinity in ways which...appeal to students." - Nic Groombridge, St Mary's University College

A really accessible book which explores basic concepts and explains core theorists in a straightforward way, great for study of magazines and any media. Sometimes it is tricky to understand that what is considered 'masculine' or 'feminine' is shaped by outside, powerful forces- like pop videos or celebrity game shows. Our ideas about gender are socially constructed - and this influences our own identity of self, encouraging us to conform, usually through shopping. Empowering for any student of the media to 'get' that idea. Read it! It's also got Gauntlett's theory org website to back it up.

SUPER useful for A level media studies essay on representation of women. Oh my god it's so full of good quality stuff to quote about women etc, also really interesting to read anyway. My bibliography is basically a shrine to David Gauntlett, Laura Mulvey and Richard Dyer.

I read „Media, Gender and Identity" during my research about men's magazines. I found it extremely helpful as it offers ideas that I haven't found in any other books. Gauntlett is very open-minded in his approach to this and other topics. Instead of damning phenomenon like the upcoming of Loaded, FHM and Co. he tries to positively explain their influence on society. This is overall the most modern book I have read about the influence of media on gender and identity as it takes in consideration pop music, films and magazines and in my opinion paints a realistic image of the world of young people today.
I can only advise anyone to read this book who is interested in how media influences society. It is written in a very well understandable language that even I - not a native English speaker- could well follow and is even fun to read - something you can unfortunately not say about many theory books for university.

Format: Paperback
David Gauntlett's Media, Gender and Identity is a fascinating and refreshing take on a subject one would imagine to be exhaustively explored by other academics. He is strides ahead of many of the other writers in this field as he combines an accessible overview of the key topics and concepts, whilst maintaining an enjoyable and illuminating read throughout.

Gender studies often tend to suffer from a bone dry and dense style of writing but Gauntlett consistently maintains humour and clarity.

This book is perfect for students looking for an accessible introduction or for those interested in the topic but looking for a pleasant read.
