About this book

This book is an anthology of work by critical media scholars, media makers, and activists who are committed to advancing social justice. Topics addressed include but are not limited to international media activist projects such as the Right to Communication movement and its corollaries; the importance of listening and enacting policies that advance democratic media; regional and local media justice projects; explorations of the challenges the era of participatory media pose to public media; youth and minority media projects and activism; ethical dilemmas posed by attempts to democratize access to media tools; the continued marginalization of feminist perspectives in international policy venues; software freedom and intellectual property rights; video activism in both historical and contemporary contexts; internet strategies for defending dissenting voices; and five accounts by prominent scholar/activists of their lifelong struggles for media justice.

Reviews

"Media justice is one of the most important issues on the contemporary agenda. It drew the attention of researchers only slowly, but is now a field of intellectual excitement as well as practical significance - and this book is the best available guide to the emerging field." - Craig Calhoun, President, Social Science Research Council"This books restores a forgotten agenda - media and social justice - and does so with new research, insight, and verve." - Professor James Curran, Director, Goldsmiths Leverhulme Media Research Centre

"In our changing media environment, Media and Social Justice arrives at just the right time. Sue Curry Jansen, Jefferson Pooley, and Lora Taub-Pervizpour have crafted a wonderfully rich collection that confronts vital questions for critical media scholars and media activists alike. The essays offer genuinely fresh insights about media justice and they affirm the value of collaborative work along the scholar-activist border. Taken together, these essays are a powerful reminder of the enduring significance of media for social justice movements. If you care about media and democracy, this is a book you will want to read and talk about." - William Hoynes, Professor of Sociology and Media Studies, Vassar College"In this important book, seasoned scholars and veteran media activists join together to give us what Raymond Williams called resources of hope - rich lessons in why and how we must reclaim the communications system in behalf of the more encompassing project to attain social justice." - Dan Schiller, Professor,University of Illinois and author of How To Think about Information"This book looks at the intersections between social justice and critical media studies and activism, and (re)frames media activism as a social justice issue.The editors have also assembled a number of well-known scholars, as well as key on-the-ground activists to contribute to the book. The book will appeal to media and communication scholars, activists, students, and professors." - Laura Stein, Associate Professor, University of Texas at Austin
