Description

A classic review of 'media effects' research, "Moving Experiences" is now revised and updated to include new chapters on David Gauntlett's creative approaches to understanding media influences. Television, movies and new media have been blamed for every kind of social problem and antisocial act, and countless studies have set out to quantify their harmful effects. Gauntlett argues that much of this blame is misplaced, and that the methodology used to justify it is deeply flawed. Screen media is a central part of modern social life, and an important influence upon how we see the world. But its 'effects' will necessarily be complex and indirect, whilst many of the ill effects attributed to screen media are really the result of more serious social problems.This second edition includes two all-new chapters on the creative research methods which Gauntlett has been developing in recent years, which offer an alternative way of exploring media influences. This book contains a revised version of the original research review, as well as the article 'Ten Things Wrong with the "Media Effects" Model,' which has become much-cited in media studies textbooks.
