About this book

The book covers the trajectories and trends in social change communication, engaging the key theoretical debates on communication and social change. Attending to the concepts of communication and social change that emerge from and across the global margins, the book works toward offering theoretical and methodological lessons that de-center the dominant constructions of communication and social change. The chapters in the book delve into the interplays of academic-activist-community negotiations in communication for social change, and the ways in which these negotiations offer entry points into transformative communication processes of social change. Moreover, a number of chapters in the book attend to the ways in which Asian articulations of social change are situated at the intersections of culture, structure, and agency. Chapters in the book are extended versions of research presented at the conference on Communicating Social Change: Intersections of Theory and Praxis held at the National University of Singapore in 2016, organized under the umbrella of the Center for Culture-Centered Approach to Research and Evaluation (CARE).

About the authors

Mohan Jyoti Dutta is Dean’s Chair Professor and Director of the Center for Culture-Centered Approach to Research and Evaluation (CARE) at Massey University, and Adjunct Professor of Communication at Purdue University. Professor Dutta’s research works at the intersections of communication for social change and postcolonial/Subaltern Studies theories, voicing the erasure of subaltern voices through dominant discursive processes of knowledge production and working simultaneously through co-constructive processes toward fostering spaces for listening to subaltern voices that have hitherto been erased. 

Dazzelyn Baltazar Zapata is currently a lecturer at the Communications and New Media Department, National University of Singapore. Dazzelyn has worked on various social change research projects with the Center for Culture-Centered Approach to Research and Evaluation since 2014. Indigenous peoples, representation, development, health communication, and ICT use in marginalized settings are Dazzelyn’s research interests.
