Re.framing Activism Call for contributors

On 1st December 2012, the REFRAME publishing platform at the School of Media, Film and Music, University of Sussex, will launch a new interdisciplinary, multimedia blog that brings together academic research, media practice and current news about mediated activism.

We are interested in representing a broad spectrum of research on and news about international mediated forms of activism including local, queer, grassroots, global and NGO forms.

We are currently looking for academic researchers in this field (at all stages in their career) to contribute regular or guest posts in these areas (say, of 500-1000 words, or embeddable work in audio/visual formats). The blog aims to reach an international audience of academics, researchers, activists and others interested in these topics.

If you are interested in contributing a post please contact us at: activism.US[at]gmail.com.

(I think this is a great initiative and I’m excited about being in the editorial team!)
