Scandalous! The Mediated Construction of Political Scandals in Four Nordic Countries
S. Allern & E. Pollack (eds.)
The purpose of this book is to spotlight the way in which political scandals in four Nordic countries have been launched, directed, dramatized and interpreted through different genres of journalism – in an interactive tug-of-war between editors and various political actors.
News institutions help to build political careers – and to tear them down. A mediated scandalization process can make the path from power to powerlessness, from a top position to exclusion, very short.
Globalization and Media: Global Village of Babel
This book argues for the central role of media in understanding globalization. Indeed, the author convincingly shows that globalization could not have occurred without media. From earliest times, humans have used media to explore, settle, and globalize their world. In our day, media have made the world progressively 'smaller' as nations and cultures come into increasing contact. Decades ago Marshall McLuhan prophesied that media technology would transform the world into a 'global village.' Slowly, fitfully, his vision is being fulfilled.
Migration and New Media: Transnational Families and Polymedia
Mirca Madianou & Daniel Miller
How do parents and children care for each other when they are separated because of migration?

A migrant mother can now call and text her left-behind children several times a day, peruse social networking sites and leave the webcam for 12 hours achieving a sense of co-presence.
