Are There Any? Should There Be? How About These?

ARE THERE ANY? Many of us have our own canonic texts ? the
kind that won't

go away. We tell them that their time has passed, that it's
embarrassing

they're still around, but they turn up repeatedly on our reading
lists and

in our bibliographies. They inspire us, haunt us, argue with us --
but they

won't leave. Typically, we keep them to ourselves.

SHOULD THERE BE? Of course there should be, and there's no
reason to hide

them. Canons (and saints) should be shared, because they define
fields and

communities. These texts are not simply monuments, however. They
are alive

and breathing, standing the test of time by shedding old meanings
and

assuming new ones. The minimal care they need ? occasional
brushing off and

bulb-changing ? is well worth the trouble.


HOW ABOUT THESE? The field of media studies is now more than 50
years old,

and the contributors to this volume offer their own candidates for
canonization. Each of the thirteen essays in the book presents a
critical reading of one of these classics and debates its
candidacy. You are invited to disagree. The texts are summarized,
analysed and re-examined for their contemporary relevance. They are
grouped together in schools (Chicago, Columbia, Frankfurt, Toronto,
British Cultural Studies) to highlight the different perspectives
that characterize the field.


This book offers thirteen pairs of shoulders to stand on, the
better to see the field of media studies. It will serve as an
excellent teaching text for advanced students in communications and
media and cultural studies.
