This book explores the critical concepts in identity theories... In recent years, identity construction, maintenance and questioning in and through the varios media have been the focus of key debates in media and cultural studies. This book explores the critical concepts in identity theories and the media, discusses "ethnic" and "national" identities constructed through newspaper, photographs, television, film and the digital media, and presents challenging issues on current debates in identity politics and marginality from global, local and personal perspectives. "Mediated Identites" provides a highly readable and "multi-culti" view to the media, cultural and film studies. The book aims to offer a comprehensive and innovative journey through the identities in times and spaces of the media.
