The Mediated Construction of Reality
In this lecture, Nick Couldry will present some of the core arguments discussed in his most recent book, The Mediated Construction of Reality (Polity Books, 2017), and elaborate on the implications these arguments have on social theory – especially in relation to stability/instability of social orders.
Nick Couldry, professor of media, communications and social theory at the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK, is one of the leading sociologists interested in media and communications, culture and power, and social theory. In his most recent book, The Mediated Construction of Reality (Polity Books, 2017), Nick Couldry and his co-author Andreas Hepp revisit the question of how social theory can understand the processes through which an everyday world is constructed in and through media.
