Dynamic, rapid, and radical changes are transforming the communication professions, provoking major implications for ethics. Traditional boundaries blur as media converge; relentless competitive pressures cause some forms of communication to atrophy and permit others to explode; and technological advances occur daily. In this volume, a new generation of scholars take a fresh look at the manner in which ethical issues manifest themselves in their areas of research and suggest new agendas for future research. This book addresses a wide range of questions from a variety of communication professions. Contributors tackle such issues as how to define a journalist in an era when anyone can disseminate information to a global audience; how to use "advergames," crowdsourcing, and facial recognition technology in advertising responsibly; and how to respond ethically in situations of public crisis communication, among many others. This volume will be critical reading for scholars and professionals in media, communication, and digital arts, as well as philosophy, government, public policy, business, and law.

The mainstream media’s usual agenda, with a few worthy exceptions, is limited to the issues that the propaganda system wants us to hear, giving the viewer a narrow and biased view of what’s going on in the world. Appalled by the duplicity and misinformation churned out by the corporate media, James Winter records example after example, from major newspapers and televison programs, of the use, misuse and abuse of information. Included is a scathing analysis of actions by the U.S. administration since 9/11, in a global agenda which stretches from Iraq and Afghanistan to Venezuela; a look at how the corporate media have demonized youthful protesters, portraying them as irrational and violent thugs; how they have fought the Kyoto Accord; and how they push pharmaceutical drugs, not just in ads but in news stories and programs, omitting the downside of so-called “modern medicine.” Understanding how media shape our thinking about social issues, Disney’s animated feature films—which inundate our children, promote hierarchy and are loaded with stereotypes, presenting negative images of women, visible minorities, gays and lesbians—are scrutinized. As are a number of video games from which children as young as 8 are learning violence, sexism and racism, through innocent-sounding games such as, “Grand Theft Auto”, “Waste the Wife” and “Kill All Haitians.” In their rave reviews of these films and games, the corporate media are oblivious to these damaging representations. If real power is exercised today not by governments, but by private interests, then the corporate media deserve our attention. James Winter is a professor of communication studies at the University of Windsor, in Ontario, Canada. He has taught media literacy to thousands of students, for the past quarter century. He is the founding editor of the Electronic Journal of Communication, and the muckraking alternative webzine, Flipside. His recent books include: MediaThink, and Democracy’s Oxygen: How Corporations Control the News.

The Literary Agenda is a series of short polemical monographs about the importance of literature and of reading in the wider world and about the state of literary education inside schools and universities. The category of 'the literary' has always been contentious. What is clear, however, is how increasingly it is dismissed or is unrecognised as a way of thinking or an arena for thought. It is sceptically challenged from within, for example, by the sometimes rival claims of cultural history, contextualized explanation, or media studies. It is shaken from without by even greater pressures: by economic exigency and the severe social attitudes that can follow from it; by technological change that may leave the traditional forms of serious human communication looking merely antiquated. For just these reasons this is the right time for renewal, to start reinvigorated work into the meaning and value of literary reading. Being Literate in the 21st Century wrestles with critical, timely questions for 21st-century society. How does literacy change the human brain? What does it mean to be a literate or a non-literate person in the present digital culture: for example, what will be lost in the present reading brain, and what will be gained with different mediums than print? What are the consequences of a digital reading brain for the literary mind and for writing itself ? Can knowledge about the reading brain and advances in technology offer new forms of literacy and new forms of knowledge to the peoples in remote regions of the world who would never otherwise become literate? By using both research from cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, child development, and education, and considering literary examples from world literature, Maryanne Wolf plots a course that seeks to preserve the deepest forms of reading from the past, while developing the cognitive skills necessary for this century's next generation.

It offers a broad view of how work pressures can compromise the performance and vitality of individuals and their organizations. The contributions to this volume not only confirm communication’s centrality to the problems work pressures pose, but also open an interdisciplinary conversation about how to learn from and, ultimately, manage them. Specific topics covered include the proliferation of communication technologies, organizational discourse, work overload, and generational differences in the workplace.
