Understanding Community Media: New Book

I’ve never been that good at selling myself, but if I can’t promote myself on my own blog then I figure I need to just give up now!

Here are details of  new peer reviewed book called ‘Understanding Community Media’ edited by Kevin Howley.  I wrote chapter 16, titled ‘Positioning Education Within Community Media’.

As they say, it is available in all good book shops.  Enjoy!

This text reveals the value and significance of community media in an
era of global communication.  Bringing together an international team of
scholars and practitioners, it introduces students to the emerging field
of community media studies.  Throughout, contributors explore a wide
range of media institutions, forms and practices—community radio,
participatory video, street newspapers, Independent Media Centers
(IMCs), and community informatics—from around the world.  Over thirty
original essays consider the particular and distinctive ways local
populations make use of various technologies for purposes of community
communication.  The collection provides an incisive and timely analysis
of the relationship between media and society, technology and culture,
and communication and community.
