Consuming Media: Communication, Shopping and Everyday Life
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMK).
2007 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Inspired by Walter Benjamin's classical Arcades Project, the authors explore the interface between communication, shopping and everyday life. Based on a six-year study by over a dozen scholars on a specific site, the book analyses the links between power, media and consumption in contemporary urban culture. Four main media circuits are examined - print media, media images, sound and motion, and hardware machines - to assess how media texts and technologies are selected, purchased and used. Exploring the relations between different media, cultural citizenship and power relations of public space, the book presents an ethnography of globalization and develops a new approach to understanding media consumption.
