New edited volume – Diversity in Transcultural and International Communication

Carola Richter and Indira Dupuis together with Stefanie Averbeck-Lietz have just published a new edited volume entitled “Diversity in Transcultural and International Communication.” This volume contributes to diversity research within communication studies by taking into consideration the representation and implementation of social and cultural diversity in the public sphere, particularly in the mass media. In the first part, concepts of diversity are outlined with respect to a normative claim. In the second part, the focus lies on particular political decision-making and implementation of diversity measures in media regulation, public diplomacy and science. The last part presents several analyses regarding the construction of diversity in internationally traded TV programs. The book is available at the LIT publishing house (LIT Verlag).
