Book Description: What are the challenges that face a new campus for a university, particularly in an area - such as East London - which is in need of regeneration and investment? Can a university become integrated into the community, and at the same time contribute to the regeneration of that community, both by helping individuals and the community as a whole? If so, what can it do and how? The authors consider these questions in relation to the new campus of the University of East London which is situated in Docklands. The essays in this book consider how the university should adapt itself to these changing needs and expectations. They argue that there can no longer be a single model of what a university should be. Non-traditional universities need to redefine their roles and find new ways of meeting local needs. This will include: new relationships between teachers and students;more involvement in the regeneration of the local economy, including in the cultural industries; more involvement in training, including a role in lifelong learning, access courses, and other intermediate forms of education; new partnership with other agencies - local industry, the local state and voluntary agencies.

Book Description: Never before has the future been so systematically envisioned, aggressively analyzed, and grandly theorized as in the present rush to cyberspace and digitalization. In the mid-twentieth century, questions about media technologies and society first emerged as scholarly hand-wringing about the deleterious sweep of electronic media and information technologies in mass culture. Now, questions about new technologies and their social and cultural impact are no longer limited to intellectual soothsayers in the academy but are pervasive parts of day-to-day discourses in newspapers, magazines, television, and film. Electronic Media and Technoculture anchors contemporary discussion of the digital future within a critical tradition about the media arts, society, and culture. The collection examines a range of phenomena, from boutique cyber-practices to the growing ubiquity of e-commerce and the internet. The essays chart a critical field in media studies, providing a historical perspective on theories of new media. The contributors place discussions of producing technologies in dialogue with consuming technologies, new media in relation to old media, and argue that digital media should not be restricted to the constraining public discourses of either the computer, broadcast, motion-picture, or internet industries. The collection charts a range of theoretical positions to assist readers interested in new media and to enable them to weather the cycles of hardware obsolescence and theoretical volatility that characterize the present rush toward digital technologies. Contributors include Ien Ang, John Caldwell, Cynthia Cockburn, Helen Cunningham, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Guillermo G=mez-Pe±a, Arthur Kroker, Bill Nichols, Andrew Ross, Ellen Seiter, Vivian Sobchack, AllucquFre Rosanne Stone, Ravi Sundaram, Michael A. Weinstein, Raymond Williams, and Brian Winston. John Thornton Caldwell is chair of the film and television department at the University of California at Los Angeles. He is a filmmaker and media artist and author of Televisuality: Style, Crisis, and Authority in American Television (also from Rutgers University Press).

Book Description: The much-vaunted (by all political parties) ideal of lifelong learning requires that all children make a positive, successful and enthusiastic start in life. Despite universal provision of schooling, this requirement is often not met. This scholarly and ambitious book argues that schools must be prepared to engage the community actively, while undertaking dramatic self-appraisal and renewal. It outlines the decisions that need to be taken now, if the ideal of lifelong learning is not to be lost.
