Media and Participation in Post-Migrant Societies

Media and Participation in Post‐Migrant Societies

Edited by Tanja Thomas, Merle-Marie Kruse, and Miriam Stehling

In contemporary media cultures, media are part of the most important sites where collective representations and narrations of a post‐migrant civic culture are (re‐)negotiated. At the same time, they offer powerful resources and instruments for civic participation and collaboration. Media and Participation in Post‐Migrant Societies addresses an important shortcoming in the research on participation in media cultures by introducing a special focus on post-migrant conditions to the discussion – both as conceptual refinements and as empirical studies. The contributions of this book provide diverse analyses of the conditions, possibilities, but also constraints for participation and the role of media communication in the reshaping of civic culture in post‐migrant societies.
