Series: Mediated Youth, Volume 12


This book documents and analyzes transnational research on youth media production and distribution projects both in and out of school. With comprehensive theoretical analyses, notes, and bibliographies, each chapter includes a case study, illuminating the variety and diversity of youth media projects around the world. Contributors span multiple disciplines and regions, and their perspectives provide a rich and comparative resource for readers.
The information gathered here is a valuable tool in assessing the potential of youth media programs; the book intends to make positive contributions to youth media practices, scholarship, policy, and advocacy, and ultimately, to help young people around the world think, feel, and act like powerful and expressive participants in their local and global multi-mediated realities.
An accompanying website provides a comprehensive and up-to-date list of programs, projects, research reports, and publications relating to youth media – an important resource for scholars and students in the field.
