It's the Media Stupid!
  • Description

Brian Winston is one of the world’s leading authorities on documentary films, media ethics, media technologies and their histories - and freedom of expression issues. His books and films have won prestigious international prizes; in 1985, he was the recipient of a US National Emmy for an ‘outstanding individual achievement writing for an information series’. He has occupied major roles in the broadcast industry and academy in both the US and UK. As a teacher and writer of textbooks, he is admired by students and colleagues alike. In 2007, he was awarded the highest academic honour at his university being named The Lincoln Professor.

This festschrift brings together ten original essays by leading international academic colleagues to celebrate Brian Winston’s distinguished career - begun in 1963 and still continuing. They cover three of Brian’s specialist areas:

  • documentary,
  • free expression,
  • and politics and ethics of the media.

The contributors are (in order of appearance) Tom Waugh, Deane Williams, Kate Nash, Annette Hill, Clifford G. Christians, Julian Petley, Raphael Cohen-Almagor, Ivor Gaber, Martin Conboy and Pratap Rughani.

In his Preface, David Chiddick, former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, says: 'Brian helped turn shibboleths of traditional universities on their head' and describes him as 'a generous, inclusive, empowering and transformative' academic.
