Special Issue 3: “Mass Media, Knowledge, and Ethics”, edited by Patrick J. Reider

SERRC —  November 4, 2014 — 1 Comment

In this Special Issue, our multinational contributors share their perspective on epistemic claims and the moral implications of how one should present them via mass media.  Though the individual responses vary, they fall under two headings: 1) New Media and Social Justice, and 2) Mass Media, Popular Science, and Bad Reporting.

The PDFs of each article give specific page numbers. Shortlink: http://wp.me/p1Bfg0-1Kj
