Contribution by Andrea Grisold to new book - The Media and Inequality
Prof. Grisold contributes together with co-author Hendrik Theine Chapter 12 "Debating Inequality: The Case of Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century" in the new published book The Media and Inequality (Routledge, 2023) edited by Steve Schifferes and Sophie Knowles.
This book brings together a vast range of pre-eminent experts, academics, and practitioners to interrogate the role of media in representing economic inequality. It explores and deconstructs the concept of economic inequality by examining the different dimensions of inequality and how it has evolved historically; how it has been represented and portrayed in the media; and how, in turn, those representations have informed the public’s knowledge of and attitudes towards poverty, class and welfare, and political discourse.
