Children today are growing up in a world of global media. Many have also become global citizens, through their experience of migration and transnational networks. Global Children, Global Media provides a comprehensive critical review of research and debate in the overlapping fields of media, globalization, migration and childhood. It also presents empirical research, using innovative visual methods, in which children's voices are featured prominently and directly. By representing these issues from the perspective of children, the book casts new light on established academic debates about cultural identity, diaspora and transnationalism, and addresses questions about social cohesion, belonging and citizenship that are of considerable concern in contemporary public and political debate. Global Children, Global Media, now available in paperback, will provide insights both for scholars and researchers, and for educators and media practitioners who work directly with children and young people in this field.

Editorial Reviews

"What makes this book stand out from the crowd of other studies on media use is that it explores and analyses the experiences of immigrant children and presents these in a coherent form for the first time. The book's great strength is that it brings new evidence into familiar, and all too often abstract, discussions about culture and identity." - European Journal of Communication
