The book: MEDIA and THE CITY

New Media on The Internet
With the majority of the world's population now living in cities, questions about the cultural and political trajectories of urban societies are increasingly urgent. Media and the City explores the global city as the site where these questions become most prominent. As a space of intense communication and difference, the global city forces us to think about the challenges of living in close proximity to each other. Do we really see, hear and understand our neighbours? This engaging book examines the contradictory realities of cosmopolitanization as these emerge in four interfaces: consumption, identity, community and action. Each interface is analysed through a set of juxtapositions to reveal the global city as a site of antagonisms, empathies and co-existing particularities.
Myria Georgiou's fascinating new vision of the mediated and cosmopolitan city explores humanity’s biggest project yet by investigating its role in consumption, identity, community and civic action.
John Hartley, Curtin University
This is an elegantly written book about ideas of cosmopolitanism, urbanity and the media. I think, this book will be essential reading for students and experts in media and communications studies and for people, who wants to learn and perfect their English.
