Managing Media Work by Mark Deuze

This book explores the ways media industries function, how media professionals manage their careers, how media industries engage with creativity and innovation, and how to make sense of this in ways to empower aspiring professionals (as well as those who want to research media management and production). While students who want to enter a media industry may understand the impact the industry has on audiences and politics (as these are the dominant areas of mass communications research and courses offered), these students generally are not empowered to understand how and why the industry works as it does, nor how contemporary worldwide societal shifts and trends - such as globalization, digitalization, convergence, and individualization - affect the everyday managerial and creative practices in the industry. Mark Deuze addresses and answers these issues and needs.


This rich, varied, informative and bang-up-to-date collection will be a terrific resource for students, teachers and researchers. The editor has done a great job in bringing together a set of leading figures who wouldn't normally be found in the same pages. -- David Hesmondhalgh Managing Media Work is a bold and original volume that shows how talent, passion, and personality play out in the media business, shaping not only individual careers but also the fate of entire corporations. With authors from business schools, communications, and cultural studies, it will appeal to anyone hoping to enter the creative industries, and to everyone who studies them. -- Eric Klinenberg For years, media scholars have all but ignored those who manage and work in the cultural industries. This collection takes a major step toward overcoming this shortcoming by bringing together an impressive and diverse group of international scholars to expand what we know about the creative industries. Deuze has done us a great service by putting together this touchstone volume. -- Catherine McKercher & Vincent Mosco
