Communications and Cultural Analysis: A Religious View

Synopsis

Contrasting values from the wider culture create dilemmas for those trying to follow a religious life, posits the author, in this new exploration of the way electronic communications--especially film and television--shape our world of meaning. Warren focuses on the actual process by which versions of reality are produced, drawing on Raymond William's idea of "signification," and illustrates how Paulo Freire's theory of cultural agency is put into practice when individuals decide to exercise some judgement and control over the kinds of cultural material they will accept or resist.
