A Critique of/in the media:

the aim for metacritical approaches

Keywords: Media critique, communication, metacritique

Abstract

Diverging perspectives on the current reflection concerning different critical stances have led to the concept of metacritique. This study discusses the possibility of establishing a way of media culture critic by means of metacritique, focusing on the peculiar difficulty to determine a consensual definition to this concept, due to its multiplicity and variability. This paper also presents how different fields of knowledge (sociology in special) can apply the concept of metacritique in relation to media studies. This article suggests that media metacritique is a notion that could foster media practices analysis, and demonstrates how this concept is relevant considering recent television series and movies.
