Re-engaging the intersections of media, politics and cities

Rodgers, Scott; Barnett, Clive and Cochrane, Allan (2009). Re-engaging the intersections of media, politics and cities. International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, 33(1) pp. 231–232.



Within contemporary social theory and social science, urban and media studies are seen as zones of speciality, with distinctive theoretical traditions and substantive concerns. This introduction situates the four short essays making up this Debates and Developments section in relation to a recent interdisciplinary workshop held in June 2008 at The Open University in Milton Keynes, UK, where participants were encouraged to experiment with and rework the longstanding conceptual differences and disciplinary policing so often setting apart media and urban studies. The essays showcased here focus on the theoretical approaches urban scholars might bring to bear on studies of how cities and media come together around matters of politics.
