Abstract:

The study of media, texts and culture(s) and especially the analysis ofinterdependent relationships between them has become a major concern invarious academic fields, such as intercultural communication, contrastivetextology, comparative cultural studies, historical and interculturalpragmatics. Starting from the observation that in contrastive studies of massmedia communication not only the theoretical status of “culture” often remainsunclear but also the interdependent relation between the theoreticalconceptualization of “culture” and the methodological approach of textanalysis, this volume brings together linguistic mass media studies withintercultural, diachronic, intermedia and interlingual perspectives. Apartfrom offering new empirical insights into the field, this volume’s aim is toadvance and to broaden the methodological and theoretical discussionsinvolved. Comparing such diverse formats and genres like newspapers, TV newsshows, TV commercials, radio phone-ins, obituaries, fanzines and filmsubtitles, the contributions of this volume illustrate the complexity of thegrowing field of contrastive media analysis.
