Liebe KollegInnen,

anbei ein Call for Papers für einen Sammelband zu Community Medien. 

Interessant dabei die Planung in konzise aufeinander aufbauenden
Kapiteln mit durchaus praxisrelevanten Inhalten:
 - Finanzierung (woher? inhaltliche Einflüsse?)
 - Publikum (wer nutzt Community Medien?)
 - Macher (wer macht CM? Warum?)
 - Organisation (welche Strukturen funktionieren am besten? Woher weiss
man das?)
 - Vertrieb (Einflüsse neuer Technik etc)

Sollten sich nicht auch in der FoMe-Liste Autoren finden lassen? Der
Stand des Wissens sollte gut abgebildet werden, damit man sich das Werk
später kaufen kann :-)

Beste Grüsse

Friederike Gräper

>"Notions of Community An edited collection of community media debates"
>  Edited by Janey Gordon, University of Bedfordshire, UK
>  Call For Chapters
>Community media in all its guises has come to have an importance and 
>significance for communities globally in many differing 
>circumstances.  It has variously developed as a public sphere, 
>uncensored by authoritarian or hegemonic view-points; it has aided 
>economic and social development: it has provided an outlet for 
>cultural products of minority, under-represented or repressed groups 
>of people; it has given practical information, self-esteem and 
>self-worth to those without other media forms at their disposal.
>  This edited collection gets beyond descriptions of the values and 
> processes and is deliberately looking for argument and structured 
> debate around the issues of this vibrant sector of the media.
>The book seeks to examine the recent debates and dilemmas that have 
>emerged with in this sector.  It provides a critical overview of the 
>major issues facing community media and discusses some of the 
>dilemmas that concern community media practitioners and their 
>audiences. It seeks to unpick the relationships between such matters 
>such as funding and content; producers or editors and their 
>audiences; community media and commercial and national media and the 
>over arching ethics of this sector with the regulatory authorities guidelines.
>This book is an edited collection for students studying mainstream 
>and alternative media and also practitioners involved in the 
>community media sector. It has an international perspective and 
>covers the traditional formats of radio, TV and print as well as 
>newer technologies and forms.
>Peter Lang Books, Oxford, UK have strongly indicated that they are 
>interested in publishing this collection.
>The editor is seeking abstracts for chapters in the following areas,
>    * Funding: Where does funding for community media come 
> from?  Does it define content? What is the relationship with 
> funding providers?
>    * Content: Is community media truly providing a public sphere of 
> discourse? To what extent does it risk further marginalizing 
> minority cultures?
>    * Audiences:  How is a 'community' defined? Who is accessing 
> community media? How does community media engage with its audiences?
>    * Practitioners: Who are community media practitioners? What do 
> they get out of their participation in community media? How do 
> practitioners know they are 'successful' by their own definitions?
>    * Organisation: How does community media ensure that it is 
> acting for those it seeks to represent? What forms of 
> organisational structures best promote the ideals of community 
> media? How does the ethos of community media relate to authorities 
> and regulatory bodies? What is the relationship between community 
> media and mainstream media providers?
>    * Dissemination: Is community media being marginalized by new 
> technology? How is community media using and engaging with newer 
> forms of dissemination such as webcasts, ezines, pods, blogs, SMS, 
> MMS and digital transmission systems? This list is not exhaustive 
> and discourse concerning cutting-edge community media dissemination 
> systems is encouraged.
>These areas do not constitute a comprehensive list and proposals on 
>other related themes will be considered. Selection will lay emphasis 
>on papers that are accessible, clearly written, and enhance the 
>debates and illustrate the dilemmas surrounding the community media sector.
>  Submission deadline for abstracts is: 1st June 2007, with the 
> final chapters being completed by 30th September 2007.
>Abstracts of 200 words and  biographical details of 50 words should 
>be submitted to Janey Gordon,
