Media and Development

New Media on The Internet
From charitable donations and delivering public health messages to promoting democratic participation and state accountability, the media can play an important role in development. It can also be used as a mechanism of control and supervision or to disseminate hate speech and propaganda.

How then should we respond to the growing importance of the media? The first step is to acquire an informed and critical understanding of the multiple roles that the media can have in development. This book provides concise and original introductions to the study and practice of communication for development, media development and media representations of development. Also it highlights the increasing importance of the media, whilst at the same time emphasizing the varieties, complexities and contingencies of its role in social change.

The broad and interdisciplinary focus of this book will make it attractive to anyone with an interest in media, communication, development, politics and social change.

Mind and media

Connect-universum 2012
Author: Negri Marco

Annotation:

What experiences do we have of the relationship between mind and media? In the first part of these notes, I try to describe the relationships between mind and media (in particular certain essential points of connection or disconnection between a person’s mind and Twenty First Century media of mass communication). In the second part of the writing, I try to evaluate the relationship between mind and media — I try to observe the marriage or divorce between mind and media from a normative point of view: from a perspective based on some shared values, such as freedom, truth, health and friendship. I focus in the end on the importance of taking both interpreted facts and ethical judgments about the relationship between mind and media as something complex — something to be understood by being aware of the multifaceted nature of human beings and reality.
