About the Product

The one-volume encyclopedia will include around 250 essays on the varied experiences of social movement media across the planet over the 20th and 21st centuries. It will also contain thematic essays on selected issues such as human rights media, indigenous people’s media, and environmentalist media, and on key concepts widely used in the field—e.g. "alternative media", "citizens’ media", "community media", and "social movement media." The encyclopedia engages with all communication media: broadcasting, print, cinema, the Internet, popular song, street theatre, graffiti, dance. Some entries address social movement media of the extreme right. The entries in the encyclopedia are designed to be relatively short, providing clear, accessible, and current information on a topic.
