Summary "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 debates. Global Children, Global Media 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."--BOOK JACKET.
