Publisher's Synopsis

How do we combat post-truth in the news? Are social media influencers the journalists of today? What jobs will there be left in the media once AI takes over? This volume investigates the future of various media industries and technologies (journalism, TV, film, photography, radio, publishing, and social media) while exploring how media shape our future. Issues of truth, diversity, media reform, activism, and art take the discussion into a wider social context. The book celebrates the importance and vitality of media in the modern world-and of the academic discipline of media studies, which offers a rigorous study of media. The Future of Media is an experiment in collaborative modes of thinking and working. Coauthored by theorists and practitioners from one of the world's most established media departments, it offers a radical, creative, and critical "Goldsmiths take" on media industries and on world affairs. Through their timely, diverse, and often passionate analyses, along with the practice works featured on the companion website, the authors demonstrate both how to think about the media and how to produce relevant and challenging media. The book serves as an invitation to all media scholars, students, and industry practitioners to work together on trying to shape a better media future and a better world for us all.
