Zizek and the Media provides a systematic and approachable introduction to the main concepts and themes of Zizek's work, and their particular implications for the study of the media. The book:
- Describes the radical nature of Zizek's media politics
- Uses Zizekian insights to expose the profound intellectual limitations of conventional approaches to the media
- Explores the psychoanalytical and philosophical roots of Zizek's work
- Provides the reader with Zizekian tools to uncover the hidden ideologies of everyday media content;
Explains the ultimate seriousness that underlies his numerous jokes.
As likely to discuss Homer's Springfield as Ithaca, Zizek is shown to be the ideal guide for today's mediascape.
