This book offers a critical road map for understanding and researching “social innovation media”—initiatives that look for new solutions to seemingly intractable social problems by combining creativity, media technologies, and engaged collectives in their design and implementation. Presenting a number of case studies, including campaigns dealing with young people, Indigenous peoples, human rights, and environmental issues, the book takes a close look at the guiding principles, assumptions, goals, practices, and outcomes of these experiments, revealing the challenges they face, the components of their innovation, and the cultural economy within which they operate.
Review Quotes
Critical Studies in Media Communication
"Provides a unique resource to a growing population of creative and intellectual non-profit innovators, and in the process shines a light on a handful of successful programs exemplifying the field. . . . Successfully bridges multiple areas of literature to comprise an insightful applied survey to SIM. Not only do the authors provide socio-economic context alongside thick descriptions of successes in the field of Social Innovation Media, the authors skillfully integrate both contemporary and canonical social theory throughout each chapter to underscore the relevance of these applied practices to an academic audience."
