he International Encyclopedia of Gender, Media, and Communication comprises 260 entries by an international team of both established and emerging scholars in the field.
This innovative resource explores how gender is represented in media, who produces the content, and the ways in which audiences receive and understand media messages. The contributors offer original insights on diverse aspects of gender in film, television, visual media, social and digital media and more.
Three alphabetically-organized volumes explore contexts and issues, production, fiction and non-fiction representation, and audience consumption. Each entry provides an overview of the topic, a list of additional readings, and cross-references to related entries in the encyclopedia. Sub-topics are thematically organized, covering a wide range of issues, genres, and media formats. Comprehensive and up-to-date, the encyclopedia places gender at the centre of both historical and contemporary debates in the broad field of media and communication.
