SCJ Professors Publish New Book on Miami Spaces

Dr. Moses Shumow and Dr. Robert E. Gutsche, Jr. in the Department of Journalism + Media have published a new book on Miami spaces. The book also includes a Foreword by Dr. Juliet Pinto, Interim Executive Director of the School of Communication + Journalism.
News, Neoliberalism, and Miami’s Fragmented Urban Space uncovers and interrogates how news media – in an era of globalization and the rapid acceleration of free market ideologies – are both harnessed by and are complicit in the capture and re-appropriation of spatial consciousness throughout South Florida.
The two have, together and as individuals, presented this work at international conferences and in their courses.
