Engaging the Civil Dead: Citizens' Media and Prisoners' Radio
MetadataShow full item record
If community media is at the forefront of new models of citizen participation, then what better way to test this claim than by examining how community radio facilitates those groups most segregated from the general public? Prisoners, by their very nature, are by far one of society's most excluded populations. In this paper I draw on international examples of prisoners' radio and, more specifically on an Australian case study (4ZzZ, Brisbane's Locked In), to investigate the practical implementation of citizens' media theory.
