New book announcement:

Media and Participation in Post-Migrant Societies
Edited by Tanja Thomas, Merle-Marie Kruse and Miriam Stehling
Rowman & Littlefield International, 2019


In contemporary media cultures, media are part of the most important sites where collective representations and narrations of a post‐migrant civic culture are (re‐)negotiated. At the same time, they offer powerful resources and instruments for civic participation and collaboration. Media and Participation in Post‐Migrant Societies addresses an important shortcoming in the research on participation in media cultures by introducing a special focus on post-migrant conditions to the discussion – both as conceptual refinements and as empirical studies. The contributions of this book provide diverse analyses of the conditions, possibilities, but also constraints for participation and the role of media communication in the reshaping of civic culture in post‐migrant societies.

"This edited volume is a welcomed contribution to the multidisciplinary crossing of media and migration studies as it explores two recently introduced terms – conviviality and post-migrant societies – from media studies perspectives. This book offers an exciting starting point to examine different local, national and diasporic contexts through the notion of post-migration, a discussion that has started in Germany." -- Karina Horsti, Academy of Finland Research Fellow, Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy, University of Jyväskylä
