New Book: International Media Development: Historical Perspectives and New Frontiers

A Book co-edited by Nicholas Benequista, Susan Abbot, Paul Rothman and Winston Mano, published by Peter Lang

This new collection, co-edited by Nicholas Benequista, Susan Abbot, Paul Rothman, and Winston Mano is the first of its kind on the topic of media development. It brings together luminary thinkers in the field―both researchers and practitioners―to reflect on how advocacy groups, researchers, the international community and others can work to ensure that media can continue to serve as a force of democracy and development. But that mission faces considerable challenges. Media development paradigms are still too frequently associated with Western prejudices, or out of touch with the digital age. As we move past Western blueprints and into an uncertain digital future, what does media development mean? If we are to act meaningfully to shape the future of our increasingly mediated societies, we must answer this question.
