If we take the late 1960s as a starting point an explicitly defined âcritical political economy of communicationsâ is fifty years old. How salient today are the core concerns that shaped this tradition? What are the emergent themes in contemporary critical media studies? Jonathan Hardy will discuss his book-length review of critical political economistsâ work (Hardy, Jonathan. Critical Political Economy of Media: An Introduction. London: Routledge.), and reflect on what their approaches can offer for contemporary investigations into the problems of the media.
