"A unique, rich, and timely contribution to the growing literature in communication and media studies, directed at strengthening the voice and visibility of scholars from the Global South." - Professor Tawana Kupe, Vice Chancellor, University of Pretoria, South Africa "An intellectually stimulating and varied collection that re-imagines and analyses digital innovation, culture and media practices in Africa and the Caribbean." - Professor Rupert Lewis, Emeritus Professor of Political Thought, University of the West Indies, Jamaica This book advances alternative approaches to understanding media, culture and technology in two vibrant regions of the Global South. Bringing together scholars from Africa and the Caribbean, it traverses the domains of communication theory, digital technology strategy, media practice reforms, and corporate and cultural renewal. The first section tackles research and technology with new conceptual thinking from the South. The book then looks at emerging approaches to community digital networks, online diaspora entertainment, and video gaming strategies. The volume then explores reforms in policy and professional practice, including in broadcast television, online newspapers, media philanthropy, and business news reporting. Its final section examines the role of village-based folk media, the power of popular music in political opposition, and new approaches to overcoming neo-colonial propaganda and external corporate hegemony. This book therefore engages critically with the central issues of how we communicate, produce, entertain, and build communities in 21st-century Africa and the Caribbean. Hopeton S.
