Communications Research in Action

Scholar-Activist Collaborations for a Democratic Public Sphere

Edited by Philip M. Napoli and Minna Aslama

A Fordham University Press Publication

A synergy between academia and activism has long been a goal of both scholars and advocacy organizations in communications research. The essays in Communications Research in Action demonstrate, for the first time in one volume, how an effective partnership between the two can contribute to a more democratic public sphere by helping to break down the digital divide to allow greater access to critical technologies, democratizing the corporate ownership of the media industry, and offering myriad opportunities for varied articulation of individuals' ideas.
