This book, part of the BEA Electronic Media Research Series, brings together top scholars researching media literacy and lays out the current state of the field in areas such as propaganda, news, participatory culture, representation, education, social/environmental justice, and civic engagement.
The field of media literacy continues to undergo changes and challenges as audiences are reconceptualized and reconfigured, media industries are transformed and replaced, and the production of media texts is available to anyone with a smartphone. The book provides an overview of these. It offers readers specific examples and recommendations to help others as they develop their own teaching and research agendas.
Media Literacy in a Disruptive Media Environment book will be of great interest to scholars and graduate students studying media literacy through the lens of broadcasting, communication studies, media and cultural studies, film, and digital media studies.

In 2008, the Broadcast Education Association initiated a new program promotion original research. The result was the creation of the BEA Research Symposium and publications. The purpose of the BEA Symposium is as a catalyst for future research. It honors leading scholars of the discipline and features their work along with new and upcoming scholarship. The Electronic Media Research Series was established in 2010. Along with the BEA Research Symposium Series, this series provides keystone research texts for those researching with the discipline. It will bring the reader up to-date relative to the topics and it reflect the current work within the field as well as providing a comprehensive bibliography and index, facilitating further research.
