Here is a description of the book’s content:

How do we combat post-truth in the news? Are social media influencers 
the journalists of today? What is it like to live in a smart city? Does 
AI really change ‘everything’? /The Future of Media/investigates the 
future of media industries and technologies (journalism, TV, film, 
photography, radio, publishing, social media), while exploring how media 
shape our future – on a political, economic, cultural and individual 
level. Issues of diversity, media reform, labour, activism and art take 
the discussion into a wider social context. Through this, the book 
celebrates the importance and vitality of media in the modern world. 
/The Future of Media/ is also an experiment in collaborative modes of 
thinking and working. Co-authored by theorists and practitioners from 
one of the world’s most established media departments and their 
collaborators, it offers a radical, creative and critical take on media 
industries – and on world affairs.

An open-access version of the book can be downloaded from the GRO 
repository [click on the download button]:
