I am going through the final edits on the McMaster Journal of Communication (MJC), Vol 7 (2010), on the theme of “Access, Participation and Democratization in the New Media Landscape”.
This year’s Editor-in-Chief is Ms. Christine Larabie, who completed her MA in Communication and New Media, writing a brilliant thesis on net neutrality under my supervision. She has done a splendid job in putting together a great issue of MJC.
The issue will officially launch on the MJC website on March 31, but I thought I would give everyone a preview of the table of contents:
- “Introduction.” Christine Larabie, Editor-in-Chief (McMaster University)
- “Video Games as Change Agents – The Case of Homeless: It’s No Game.” T.J. Lavender (Simon Fraser University)
- “Houses that Cry: Online Civic Participation in Post-Communist Romania.” Laura Visan (York University)
- “Participatory Culture and Power in Online Spaces.” Christine Larabie (McMaster University)
- “A Burmese Case Study: Far From Inherent – Democracy and the Internet.” Jaspreet Sandhu (McMaster University)
- “Forever Blowing Bubbles: Deflating Web 2.0.” Evan Lewis (University of Western Ontario)
I hope you all check it out when we publish on March 31. It’s a great collection of insightful pieces.
