Transformative Media

Transformative Media

By Sandra Jeppesen

In 1999, Seattle activists adopted cutting-edge live stream technology to cover the World Trade Organization protests and forever changed the global justice movement’s relationship to media.

Transformative Media traces subsequent developments in technopolitics, revealing the innovative digital efforts of activist groups such as #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo today.

Drawing on participatory research, Sandra Jeppesen examines how a broad array of anti-capitalist, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ people rely on alternative media and emerging technologies in their battle against overlapping systems of oppression.

Sandra Jeppesen is Professor of Media and Communications at Lakehead University Orillia, and a member of IAMCR.
