Scholarly articles and books are no longer the primary focus for educational researchers, as they are increasingly encouraged to publish in traditional and new media – newspapers, television, radio, blogs and social media. How does this mediatised landscape impact on scholarly endeavours? What are the pitfalls and possibilities of public scholarship? Using empirical examples and analysis, as well as a range of theoretical and conceptual approaches, this book systematically investigates the transnational mediascapes in which educational researchers are now working and the influence this has on global educational policies and politics and the rise of anti-expert rhetoric.
