Book Information

   

Title: Talking Politics in Broadcast Media
Subtitle: Cross-cultural perspectives on political interviewing, journalism and accountability
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/dapsac.42
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 42
Description:

This book is a collection of studies on political interaction in a variety of
broadcast, namely news and current affairs programs, political interviews,
audience participation programs and radio phone-ins. Following a growing
scholarly interest in political discourses, dialogic forms of news production and
media talk in general, a number of internationally acclaimed scholars investigate
the discursive and interactional practices that give rise to the arena of public
politics in contemporary society. Chapters span an array of cultural contexts, as
diverse as Sweden, Greece, Belgium (Flanders), the U.K., Spain, Israel, the
U.S.A., Australia and China. Authors combine an interest in discourse analysis
and conversation analysis with different disciplinary orientations, such as
linguistics, media and cultural studies, sociology, political science, and social
psychology. The book uncovers current trends in media and political discourse,
and will be of interest to both students and scholars of media discourse and
politics.
