About this book

Crisis in the Global Mediasphere examines the evolution of contemporary global crises as an effect of mediation and cultural change. The book argues that a crisis consciousness has emerged through the interaction of crisis conditions and a more expansive human desire for pleasure.

Reviews

"Jeff Lewis's exceptional study, Crisis in the Global Mediasphere: Desire, Displeasure and Cultural Transformation, engages broadly with the discourses constructing and constructed through the anxieties and desires that permeate contemporary society. Focusing on the (re)constructions of crisis and a (collective) crisis consciousness within a 'global mediasphere', Lewis touches on issues as diverse as the current financial turmoil, sexual desire and relationships, growing global inequalities, widespread ecological destruction, and continued warfare and terrorism." - Adam Brown, Cultural Studies Review
