Power Without Responsibility; Press, Broadcasting and the Internet in Britain
27 January, 12,30-2.00pm
If you’re studying A-level Media, then you may be reading James Curran and Jean Seaton’s seminal book on the UK media, Power Without Responsibility. The book has been translated into five languages and has influenced generations of media academics, students and wider readers.
Ranging from the 1830s to the present day, the book focuses on how market distortion and state sponsored public service, among other influences, have shaped the UK media and influenced the conduct of politics, entertainment and society more generally.
This workshop, hosted by the Goldsmiths Leverhulme Media Research Centre, will reflect on themes developed in the book from the perspective of different national contexts. It will explore the contribution of Power without Responsibility in our understanding of media in a variety of political and cultural settings.
