User’s guide to the site
Media and Politics in a Globalizing World is meant as an invitation to explore a topic or problem raised in the book in an independent empirical study. This website is designed to help you on your way, by providing suggestions for further reading, ideas about and links to primary source material, and new examples or ‘portkeys’ that have turned up since the book was published. Many accounts of media and politics focus on a single country, often the US or UK. But the nature of the media-politics relationship differs in different settings. The challenge is to see general patterns but also learn from culture-specific nuances. By researching a topic covered in the book in the context of a different country or culture, you can make a scholarly contribution. You can also help develop the Media and Politics in a Globalizing World project by sharing examples from your own country or the media you use. Get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
