This is a request a first posting on the ECREA mailing list to advise of the publication of a new edition of a journal.
**REFRAMING MEDIA AND CULTURAL STUDIES IN THE AGE OF GLOBAL CRISIS**
The journal WESTMINSTER PAPERS IN COMMUNICATION AND CULTURE is thrilled to announce the publication of a special first new AUDIO commentary issue on the topic of reshaping media and cultural studies.
Dr Tarik Sabry describes: ‘In an age of ongoing economic and political crisis, military conflict displacing millions of people and systems of governance and democracy in question, a reassessment of the questions posed by the disciplines of media and cultural studies is called for. Traditional paradigms for conceptualising the media are further challenged by shifts in the media environment resulting from the growth of digital and mobile media. This is a defining moment for the field and a time for reflection and re-evaluation.’
