If we take the late 1960s as a starting point an explicitly defined 
‘critical political economy of communications’ is fifty years old. How 
salient today are the core concerns that shaped this tradition? What are 
the emergent themes in contemporary critical media studies? Jonathan 
Hardy will discuss his book-length review of critical political 
economists’ work (Hardy, Jonathan. Critical Political Economy of Media: 
An Introduction. London: Routledge.), and reflect on what their 
approaches can offer for contemporary investigations into the problems 
of the media.

Dr Jonathan Hardy is Reader in Media Studies at the University of East 
London and teaches political economy of media at Goldsmiths College, 
London. He is the author of Critical Political Economy of Media: An 
Introduction (Routledge, forthcoming; Cross-Media Promotion (Peter Lang, 
2010), Western Media Systems (Routledge, 2008) and writes on media, 
marketing communications, regulation and policy. He is Secretary of the 
Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom, a UK media reform group.
