Greening media studies – An interview with Richard Maxwell and Toby Miller
Author(s): Kooijman, Jaap
Not often does reading an academic book make you feel uncomfortable, pushing you out of your comfort zone as a scholar and consumer. GREENING THE MEDIA (New York: Oxford University Press, 2012) by Richard Maxwell and Toby Miller is such a book – an ‘inconvenient truth’ that forces one to realise that our media consumption comes at a price. Backed by revealing data Maxwell and Miller show how our media culture of flat-screen televisions, iPads, and smartphones has a destructive impact on the ecology, the global energy supply, and the working conditions of laborers in low-wage countries.
