About this product
- DescriptionThroughout history, invations in media have had a profound impact on protest and dissent. But while these recent developments in social media have been the subject of intense scholarly attention, there has been little consideration of the wider historical role of media techlogies in protest. Drawing on the work of key theorists such as Walter Benjamin and Raymond Williams, Crisis and Critique provides a historical analysis of media practices within the context of major ecomic crises. Through richly detailed case studies of the movements which emerged during three different ecomic crises - the unemployed workers' movement of the Great Depression, the rent strike movement of the early 1970s and the Occupy Wall Street protests which followed the recession of 2007 - Kaun provides an in-depth analysis of the cultural, ecomic and social consequences of media techlogies, and their role in shaping and facilitating resistance to capitalism.
