The Researching and Teaching Communication Series contains the books published within the framework of the ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School. A significant part of intellectual work of the ECREA Summer Schools is included in these books, which take a liminal position in the field of academic books, oscillating between conference proceedings and edited volumes, and containing chapters about work in progress and completed research. They remain reviewed books, but the review process is aimed at improvement and inclusion (without giving up on quality), and less at merciless critique and selection.

Series editors: Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt and Nico Carpentier.

Alternatives on media content, journalism, and regulation. The grassroots discussion panels at the 2007 ICA Conference. (2007) Edited by Seeta Peña Gangadharan, Benjamin De Cleen and Nico Carpentier

The 2007 ICA Conference on "Creating Communication: Content, Control, and Critique" did not just feature academic reflections. In three so-called grassroots discussion panels, alternative voices from outside academia also animated the conference theme. These panels produced fascinating dialogues between academia and the people that actually organize, realize, and live the participatory and bottom-up processes that we academics so eagerly analyze. The practitioners' contributions from these panels are available as an ebook entitled "Alternatives on media content, journalism, and regulation." This book brings together the stories of how civil society intervenes (sometimes successfully, sometimes less successfully) in the creation of alternative content, in the organization of alternative journalism, and in the attempts to influence the regulation that impacts upon the communicative processes.

The pdf version of the book can be downloaded (for free) from the book series website at (http://www.researchingcommunication.eu/).

Alternatively, you can visit the website we have built on the basis of all the ebook contributions. The URL of that website is: http://homepages.vub.ac.be/~ncarpent/grass/grassindex.html.
