About this book

This book reinvigorates the space between scholarly texts on self-representation, voice and agency and practical field-guides to community media and digital storytelling. It offers reflection on the ethical praxis of co-creative media, and an indispensable suite of digitally savvy representation strategies, pertinent to modern people everywhere.

About the authors

Sonja Vivienne lectures in Digital Media at Flinders University of South Australia, Australia. Her research focuses on digitally mediated self-representation, online activism and storytelling among networked publics. She has a background in media production, working with marginalised communities towards social change.

Reviews

“Vivienne’s book highlights how, through self-representation, digital storytelling can be used to achieve social change (activism) especially in marginalized communities. For digital media researchers, it would be important to adopt same methodology for other marginalized communities outside of Australia and see what results it would bring. This book is an important addition to literature in the studies of digital activism.” (Job Mwaura, Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly, Vol. 96 (2), 2019)

“Book is a brilliant example of grounded research that is thoroughly infused with theoretical insight and practical engagement. … it is full of stories in which workshop participants confront and contest religious claims their families, their communities, and broader ‘imagined’ publics are making. By offering compelling descriptions of ways to engage such meaning-making that invite people into dialogue across various divides, this book embodies transformative adult learning and offers a rich collection of pragmatic advice for nurturing such learning.” (Mary E. Hess, Wabash Center, wabash.edu, September, 2016)
