In his new work,Digital Futures for Cultural and Media Studies, a pioneer in the field turns his eye to the digital future, and how its transformation will also transform how it is studied.

This thought–provoking analysis sets out to reorient and rethink media and cultural studies, to grapple with the mutual productivity that the digital future will continue to facilitate, while investigating some examples to see which way they are pointing, including popular journalism, the public domain, media citizenship, messaging, and the role of ‘creative destruction’ in the renewal of complex systems.

The tools may change, Hartley argues, but media and popular culture will always engage with questions of meaning, identity, power, humankind in the context of technology, and global interaction among our dispersed and diverse species.
