My First Published Work – IJOC

Yesterday, my first piece of work was published in the International Journal of Communication. It was a book review of Bella Mody’s, Geopolitics of Representation in Foreign News: Explaining Darfur

Currently, it’s the latest book review in IJOC’s Vol 5 of 2011, which you can view at the link above.

The read was very manageable for those interested in communications and media studies. It’s definitely geared towards the academic community because of the use of empirical data from an indexing of seven different country’s media sources: The New York Times, The Washington Post, Le Monde, the Guardian (UK), the People’s Daily, and Al-Ahram. She also examines four online media organizations: BBC.co.uk, English.AlJazeera.net, Mail & Guardian Online, and China Daily

I think it will be a critical book for any students doing media studies going forward, and gives excellent analysis of media firms in the Global South. The amount of data that were included in the appendixes were immense, giving anyone a good first resource for further research.
