New Book: Media and Participation. A site of ideological-democratic struggle

Short Description
Participation has become fashionable again, but at the same time it has 
always played a crucial role in our contemporary societies, and it has 
been omnipresent in a surprisingly large number of societal fields. In 
the case of the media sphere, the present-day media conjuncture is now 
considered to be the most participatory ever, but media participation 
has had a long and intense history. To deal with these paradoxes, this 
book looks at participation as a structurally unstable concept and as 
the object of a political-ideological struggle that makes it oscillate 
between minimalist and maximalist versions. This struggle is analysed in 
theoretical reflections in five fields (democracy, arts, development, 
spatial planning and media) and in eight different cases of media 
practice. Among the case studies are the first interactive film, 
reality-tv and audience discussion programmes, community radio stations, 
an alternative radio exchange database and a series of vlogs and online 
video films. These case studies also show participation's close 
connection to power, identity, organization, technology and quality.
