Memoirs of a Jamaican Media-Man takes us on an epic journey through the life of Carey Robinson, one of Jamaica's most accomplished media personalities. Robinson's career in journalism started at the old Gleaner office on Harbour Street, where he was employed as a reporter and sub-editor. JBC TV was introduced to Jamaica in 1963 and Robinson set up the JIS-TV section. During his tenure as head of JIS, he wrote and produced 'Time of Fury', the first film that was made in Jamaica by Jamaicans.

Phonographic Memories is the first book to perform a sustained analysis of the narrative and thematic influence of Caribbean popular music on the Caribbean novel. Tracing a region-wide attention to the deep connections between music and memory in the work of Lawrence Scott, Oscar Hijuelos, Colin Channer, Daniel Maximin, and Ramabai Espinet, Njelle Hamilton tunes in to each novel’s soundtrack while considering the broader listening cultures that sustain collective memory and situate Caribbean subjects in specific localities. These “musical fictions” depict Caribbean people turning to calypso, bolero, reggae, gwoka, and dub to record, retrieve, and replay personal and cultural memories. Offering a fresh perspective on musical nationalism and nostalgic memory in the era of globalization, Phonographic Memories affirms the continued importance of Caribbean music in providing contemporary novelists ethical narrative models for sounding marginalized memories and voices.

This volume examines the role and representation of ‘race’ and ethnicity in the media with particular emphasis on the United States. It highlights contemporary work that focuses on changing meanings of racial and ethnic identity as they are represented in the media; television and film, digital and print media are under examination. Through fourteen innovative and interdisciplinary case studies written by a team of internationally based contributors, the volume identifies ways in which ethnic, racial, and national identities have been produced, reproduced, stereotyped, and contested. It showcases new emerging theoretical approaches in the field, and pays particular attention to the role of race, ethnicity, and national identity, along with communal and transnational allegiances, in the making of identities in the media. The topics of the chapters range from immigrant newspapers and gangster cinema to ethnic stand-up comedy and the use of ‘race’ in advertising.

One of the most common misconceptions about the history of mass communication is that the media and religion have always been natural enemies. Contrary to that popular notion, religion has played a prominent role throughout the history of America's mass media. It was integral to the founding and development of the media during the formative stages, and much of the essential character of the media has religious underpinnings.
