About this book

This book offers a fresh set of innovative and creative contributions related to the role of communication in processes of change. Given the current fast pace of social-economic, political and technological change across the globe, and the central role of communication in this, there is a growing need to reconceptualize how we approach communication and change that provides entry points to help us expand and enrich our scholarly and practical work. This collection presents 14 concepts from a multi-disciplinary collection of internationally leading and emerging scholars, from 13 countries on 5 continents. They come together around three meta-topics: citizenship and justice, critiques of development, and renewing thought (from and for the margins). The short chapter format ensures that authors get straight to the nub of their ideas, providing readers — students, scholars and practitioners alike — with accessible, engaging and innovative ways to think critically about communication and social change, in new ways.

Reviews

“This is a much-needed, state-of-the-art book about key concepts in communication for social change. With contributions from a diverse, global group of scholars, the book makes a compelling case for why matters of voice and social justice need to be central to the way we approach the intersection between communication and social change.” (Silvio Waisbord, Professor of Media and Public Affairs, The George Washington University, USA)

“This book is precisely what the field of C4D needs. A wide-ranging set of novel ‘concepts to think with’ to enable students, practitioners and scholars to better understand the rapidly changing role of communication within social change.” (Martin Scott, Senior Lecturer in Media and International Development, University of East Anglia, UK)
