Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Media/Society, Seventh Edition!

Media/Society: Technology, Industries, Content, and Users helps students understand the relationship between media and society and gets them to think critically about recent media developments. Authors David Croteau, William Hoynes, and new co-author Clayton Childress take an interdisciplinary approach with a sociological focus to answer questions like How do people use the media in their everyday lives? and How has the evolution of technology affected the media and how we use them? The Seventh Edition incorporates the latest scholarship and data that address enduring media topics, as well as new concerns raised by the role of digital platforms, the impact of misinformation online, and the role of media during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
