The Birmingham School of Media played host to the launch of a new text book aimed at students studying on media courses that has been edited, and mainly written, by two key Interactive Cultures staff. Paul Long and Tim Wall, along with contributions from Vian Bakir (University of Glamorgan), Andrew McStay (University of the Arts), Oliver Carter, Faye Davies, and Andrew Dubber (who are also based at BCU) have developed the book over the last few years based upon their approaches to teaching first year studies.

Media Studies: Texts, Production and Context is published by Longman.

Here’s what the authors and publisher had to say at the launch.
