The new book highlights key issues in Global South communication and culture. It brings together a selection of 22 scholars from the two regions, to provide critical explorations of media and people in their diverse interactions with culture, communication and technology. Published by Palgrave Macmillan in January 2021, the volume is jointly edited by Hopeton Dunn, Dumisani Moyo, William Lesitaokana and Shanade Barnabas.
With change and reform at its core, this new book traverses the domains of digital media and traditional culture, music as resistance, reforms to communication theory, resisting colonial and imperial legacies, advocating journalistic renewal, and exploring new corporate and cultural strategies, among others. It covers print journalism, broadcast radio and television, digital media, popular music, and video games–in a range of national and cultural contexts.
The book also pays particular attention to the role of media and technology in the experiences of disadvantaged or under-represented groups, including women and indigenous communities.
