The Gender and Media Reader is an essential text for those interested 
in gender and media studies, its main topics, debates, and 
theoretical approaches. The primary objective of this collection is 
to expand readers' knowledge of how gender operates within media 
culture through engagement with foundational writings as well as more 
contemporary research in this field. Taking a multiperspectival 
approach that considers gender broadly and examines media texts 
alongside their production and consumption, The Gender and Media 
Reader enables readers' critical thinking about how gender is 
constructed, contested, and subverted in different sites within media 
culture. Along with the main introduction, individual section 
introductions facilitate readers' understanding of the development of 
gender and media studies by contextualizing the various topics, 
debates, and theoretical approaches that have shaped it, as well as 
by highlighting current trends.

Mary Celeste Kearney is Associate Professor of Radio-Television-Film
