Critical Perspectives on Citizen Media aims to define and advance understanding of citizen media, an emerging academic field located at the interface between different disciplines, including media studies, sociology, translation studies, performance studies, political science, visual studies and journalism studies. Titles in the series are focused on high-quality and original research, in the form of monographs and edited collections, made accessible for a wide range of readers. The series explores the relationship between citizen media and various cross-disciplinary themes, including but not restricted to, participation, immaterial work, witnessing, resistance and performance. The series editors also welcome proposals for reference works, textbooks and innovative digital outputs produced by citizen engagement groups on the ground.
