Media Agoras: democracy, diversity, and communication is a collection of essays presenting some of the most up-to-date perspectives on the study of the role media play in the construction of a more inclusive and respectful society. From theoretical debates on the role played by media in fostering participatory practices in the public sphere to more empirically based analyses of the media policy, production, content, and reception in relation to democratic possibilities and diversity, this book presents a critical overview of such crucial debates in contemporary European societies.
