Participatory Politics and Citizen Journalism in a Networked Africa : A Connected Continent (Hardcover)
About this item
Perspectives on Participatory Politics and Citizen Journalism in a Networked Africa investigates the role of citizen journalism in railroading social and political changes in sub-Saharan Africa. Case studies are drawn from research conducted by leading scholars from the fields of media studies, journalism, anthropology and history, uniquely probing the real impact of technologies in driving social and political changes in Africa. Multidisciplinary and comparative perspectives are paraded by scholars keen to expose existing differences in the way different communities are not only socially and politically embracing technology in the English-speaking, Lusophone and Francophone Africa but also how they predict the future of the continuously-changing world of journalism.
