Bringing together an impressive group of established scholars from television studies, film studies, sound studies, games studies, and more, each of the 65 essays in the volume focuses on a critical concept, from “fan” to “industry,” and “celebrity” to “surveillance.” Keywords for Media Studies is an essential tool that introduces key terms, research traditions, debates, and their histories, and offers a sense of the new frontiers and questions emerging in the field of media studies.
“Written by many of the key scholars in media studies, this book is a wonderful introduction to the history, circulation, and meaning of concepts in the field. A useful, thorough, and compelling primer for anyone interested media criticism today.”
—Lynn Spigel, Northwestern University
"Ouellette and Gray’s lexicon of media terms frames complicated constructs in clear and succinct descriptions that tend to render obscure terms accessible to students studying media theory."
"[Keywords for Media Studies] is an excellent and comprehensive reference point for both media studies’ scholars and students."
—European Journal of Communication
