The Routledge Companion to Media and Activism has just been published, and features four CAMRI researchers. Edited by Graham Meikle, its 42 original chapters include contributions by Christian Fuchs, Anastasia Kavada and Miriyam Aouragh. The book’s many expert contributors examine the tactics and strategies of protest movements, and how activists use media to organize themselves and each other. They investigate the dilemmas of media coverage and the creation of alternative media spaces and platforms. And they emphasize the importance of creativity and art in social change. With case studies and contributors from six continents, the collection is organized around themes that address past, present and future developments in this vital and exciting area.
‘This insightful and extraordinarily wide-ranging collection offers an essential insight into both media and activism across the spectrum of political views. It draws on some of the best younger researchers and writers and puts their work into conversation with some of the best-established voices that have been analyzing movements and media for the last 30 years.’ Professor Tim Jordan, University of Sussex
