The study of media, texts and culture(s) and especially the analysis of
interdependent relationships between them has become a major concern in
various academic fields, such as intercultural communication, contrastive
textology, comparative cultural studies, historical and intercultural
pragmatics. Starting from the observation that in contrastive studies of mass
media communication not only the theoretical status of “culture” often remains
unclear but also the interdependent relation between the theoretical
conceptualization of “culture” and the methodological approach of text
analysis, this volume brings together linguistic mass media studies with
intercultural, diachronic, intermedia and interlingual perspectives. Apart
from offering new empirical insights into the field, this volume’s aim is to
advance and to broaden the methodological and theoretical discussions
involved. Comparing such diverse formats and genres like newspapers, TV news
shows, TV commercials, radio phone-ins, obituaries, fanzines and film
subtitles, the contributions of this volume illustrate the complexity of the
growing field of contrastive media analysis.
