This collection of innovative essays sets the agenda for a revitalized debate on the hybrid communicative practices that constitute the (post)modern media landscape and which cross the boundaries between fact and fiction, information and entertainment, public knowledge and popular culture.

In this challenging and provocative collection, the contributors rethink key issues - the meaning of the public interest, the quality of media performance and (de)regulation. In the process they raise topics rarely addressed in normative media theories, for example, the ethics of sports reporting, the moral reasoning in popular culture and the required professional standards for infotainment genres such as reality television and gossip journalism.

À propos de l'auteur (1997)

Joke Hermes is a Lecturer in Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam.

Hi, I am professor of Communication and Media Studies at Loughborough University, and Erasmus University Rotterdam. I was trained as a politcal scientist, but wrote my PhD in 1991 about the media (and the women's movement). Ever since I have written about gender and (new) media, politics and popular culture. I live in Amsterdam with my husband and two sons. At present I am totally into Danish (crime) drama and making cards.
