Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue
Editors: Ulla Carlsson, Sherri Hope Culver
Ir a reseña en español >
The UNITWIN Cooperation Programme on Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) is based on an initiative from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC). This Network was created in line with UNESCO’s mission and objectives, as well as the mandate of UNAOC, to serve as a catalyst and facilitator helping to give impetus to innovative projects aimed at reducing polarization among nations and cultures through mutual partnerships.
Edited by Kevin Howley
This collection of essays, the first book-length treatment of its kind, explicates the concept of “media interventions” defined as activities and projects that secure, exercise, challenge or acquire media power for tactical and strategic action.
Deliberation, the Media and Political Talk
Rousiley C. Maia
In recent years democratic theory has taken a deliberative turn and one central question that needs to be answered is how to connect face-to-face conversations and deliberations in particular forums to broader discussions in the larger society. Working within the cutting edges of deliberative theories, this book surveys the role of the mass media in the deliberative system and investigates, through a set of empirical cases, a range of key problems in the media arena: the interplay between arguing and strategic maneuvering; public demands for accountability; emotional appeal for deliberation; tensions between agonistic and diplomatic deliberation; and the public construction of general claims.
Mediation and Protest Movements
Edited by Bart Cammaerts, Alice Mattoni, and Patrick McCurdy
Over the past year, international and national media have been full of stories about protest movements and tumultuous social upheaval from Tunisia to California. But scholars have not yet fully addressed the connection between these movements and the media and communication channels through which their messages spread. Correcting that imbalance, Mediation and Protest Movements explores the nature of the relationship between protest movements, media representation, and communication strategies and tactics.
Producing the Internet: Critical Perspectives of Social Media
Tobias Olsson, editor
Should contemporary media culture be understood as a culture that offers unprecedented freedom for producing participators – so-called “produsers”? Or should it rather be understood as a culture in which various forms of user participation in fact are conditioned, or even manufactured, by organized, professional producers?
Beyond WikiLeaks: Implications for the Future of Communications, Journalism and Society
Edited by Benedetta Brevini, Arne Hintz and Patrick McCurdy
This book results from a project that started with two 'Special Sessions' at IAMCR Conference 2011 in Istanbul. A number of active IAMCR members have been involved in it. A book launch event at IAMCR 2013 in Dublin will celebrate the completion of this 2-year journey.
Speaking Up and Talking Back?
Media, Empowerment and Civic Engagement among East and Sothern African Youth
Edited by Thomas Tufte, Norbert Wildermuth, Anne Sofie Hansen-Skovmoes & Winnie Mitullah. Published by Nordicom.
Youth in particular engaged massively, visibly, loudly and dramatically around demands to be involved and included in their countries' development processes. This yearbook taps into the less visible and dramatic, but nevertheless highly dynamic and influential, process of media development and the enlargement of youth-driven, deliberative spaces which sub-Saharan Africa is currently experiencing.
Media Meets Climate: The Global Challenge for Journalism
Elisabeth Eide and Risto Kunelius, editors.
There is no way of not meeting climate change. It reframes our public debates, from shifting global power relations to political participation and individual lifestyle choices. It begs questions about our basic formulas for economics, science and democracy. It is a key theme in thinking about identities and the human condition, making us ask not only “who are we,” but also who the “we” in that question is. Climate change forces states, societies and people to look critically at the political, cultural and material ingredients of our world.
Ringtones of Opportunity: Policy, Technology and Access in Caribbean Communications
Editor: Hopeton S. Dunn
This multi-authored volume is one of the first books to present scholarly research on the liberating opportunities offered by information and communications technologies in the Caribbean and the global south. While acknowledging challenges of policy implementation and technology adaptation, the book nevertheless identifies a range of empowering development options in media literacy, e-fisheries, m-banking, mobile telephony, m-agriculture, tele-working, techno-driven environmental strategies and intellectual property reforms.
Bodies of Discourse. Sports Stars, Media, and the Global Public
Cornel Sandvoss, Michael Real and Alina Bernstein, editors.
This anthology investigates sports stardom in its global context across the spectrum of spectator sport: from the quest of Japanese star athletes to exorcise the cultural demons of postwar Japan, to the Mexican pitcher celebrating victory in the first major league baseball game played on Mexican soil; from the naturalization of a Croatian footballer in Israel, to the marginalization of Scottish women curlers at the Winter Olympics.
