[eccr] RIPE@2003 Book

Thu Sep 04 16:35:40 GMT 2003

FYI, Nico

>Broadcasting & Convergence: New Articulations of the Public Service Remit
>Gregory Ferrell Lowe & Taisto Hujanen (eds.)
>RIPE@2003, published by NORDICOM
>ISBN 91-89471-18-0
>     Description of Contents:
>Will broadcasting survive convergence, and should it survive? If yes, why 
>and in what form? These questions were fundamental to the RIPE@2002 
>conference in Finland and lay the groundwork for this book, representing 
>two years of fruitful collaboration between media scholars and 
>practitioners with a keen focus on the future of public service media. The 
>contents help set the stage for the RIPE@2004 conference being organised 
>in Denmark by Danmarks Radio and the University of Aarhus.
>The essential idea behind Re-visionary Interpretations of the Public 
>Enterprise [RIPE] is a recognition that conceptual justification for 
>public service broadcasting no longer resonates. The authors in this 
>volume explore various dimensions about what is different to any 
>compelling degree about the public service approach that convincingly 
>justifies its remit today, and about what contemporary ingredients could 
>fruitfully reframe its conceptual and operational designs.
>This book is relevant to discourse and policy about a quality of public 
>life interdependent with social processes that continue to respect and 
>also defend values that nourish media pluralism, cultural diversity, 
>political democracy and social tolerance.  The book begins with the 
>large-scale society and policy framework, moving next to the institutional 
>framework and organizational practices, and concludes with consideration 
>of reception and application.  The authors represent the Trans-Atlantic 
>nature of the RIPE initiative.
