Tue Sep 20 04:49:02 GMT 2011

" My new edited book, /International Perspectives on Youth Media:
  Cultures of Production and Education/ is now in print and available
through Peter Lang publishers if you are interested.

Here is the description:

"This book documents and analyzes transnational research on youth media
production and distribution projects both in and out of school. With
comprehensive theoretical analyses, notes, and bibliographies, each
chapter includes a case study, illuminating the variety and diversity of
youth media projects around the world. Contributors span multiple
disciplines and regions, and their perspectives provide a rich and
comparative resource for readers.
The information gathered here is a valuable tool in assessing the
potential of youth media programs; the book intends to make positive
contributions to youth media practices, scholarship, policy, and
advocacy, and ultimately, to help young people around the world think,
feel, and act like powerful and expressive participants in their local
and global multi-mediated realities.
An accompanying website provides a comprehensive and up-to-date list of
programs, projects, research reports, and publications relating to youth
media - an important resource for scholars and students in the field."

The book contains 19 chapters of original research on projects in
Brazil, the Middle East, South Africa, India, Singapore, Australia,
Scandinavia, Canada, and 3 different regions of the United States.

Let me know what you think when you read the book!
