A series of exchanges on participation in culture, media and politics

The International Journal of Communication (which is a free open access journal) is using its forum section to publish a series if exchanges on the topic of participation. The introductory exchange between Nick Couldry and Henry Jenkins introduces the idea and explains its focus. The idea is to focus on different sub-concepts relating to the overarching topic of participation. Following the introductory piece the current issue includes pieces on creativity and labour. Each exchange will be based around a dialogue between groups of academic researchers working in the field being discussed. It’s an interesting innovation that is likely to produce some revealing dialogues. As I understand it, there are four more pieces to be published in future issues of IJOC. These will participation in relation to politics, knowledge, education and platforms.
