[Commlist] Call for Book Proposals: Protest, Media and Culture

Call for Book Proposals

Book Series: Protest, Media and Culture

Series Editors: Dr Ruth Sanz Sabido (Canterbury Christ Church University) and Professor Stuart Price (De Montfort University)

Publisher: Rowman and Littlefield

The book series 'Protest, Media and Culture' publishes edited collections and monographs dedicated to the study and analysis of an irrepressible phenomenon: the worldwide resurgence of social, cultural, political and economic discontent. The evidence for this development is found in the constant appearance of contentious activities, which emerge from a fundamental conflict between formal authority and those forces that, for a variety of reasons, attempt to censure, oppose, alter or even destroy the perceived iniquities of the 'dominant' social order. The series makes particular reference to the mediated character of protest and dissent, but also encompasses theoretical, organisational and practical issues, and includes both historical and contemporary examples.

The term 'Protest' identifies the visible act of collective resistance; 'Media' acts (variously) to suppress, amplify, or reconfigure this act; and 'Culture' designates the active interactional 'space' that allows the various meanings animated by protest to circulate. The Series Editors share an approach to Protest and Mediated Culture that emerged from their work in the interdisciplinary field of Media Discourse. Our call is for proposals that may touch upon, but which are not necessarily limited to, the following thematic headings:

- Protest, Media and Communication

- Gender and Protest

- Cultural Studies and Protest

- Protest and Post-colonial Studies

- Social Psychology and Public Dissent
