Article: Cultural Diversity and Global Media, The Mediation of Difference, the book written by Eugenia Siapera

“Cultural Diversity and Global Media”, written by Eugenia Siapera, explores the relationship between  the media and multiculturalism.

The interesting book offers an specific perspective and also it does: -Summarises and critically discusses current approaches to multiculturalism and the media from a global perspective -Explores both the theoretical debates and empirical findings on multiculturalism and the media. -Explores media production, representation, and consumption, incorporating arguments on their shifting roles and boundaries -Examines separately the role of the internet, which is linked to many changes in patterns of media production, representation, and to increased possibilities for diasporic and transnational communication -Contains pedagogical features to help understanding and engagement with the material, and draws upon an extensive bibliography Eugenia Siapera is lecturer in Media and Communications at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. She is the editor (with Lincoln Dahlberg) of Radical Democracy and the Internet (2007) and (with Joss Hands) At the Interface (2004).
