RE.FRAMING ACTIVISM is an interdisciplinary, multimedia blog that brings together academic research, media practice and current news about mediated activism. We are interested in representing a broad range of activism including local, queer, grassroots, global and NGO forms. The blog aims to reach an international audience of academics, researchers, activists and others interested in these topics.
The launch editors of RE.FRAMING ACTIVISM, from December 2012, were Rachel Tavernor and Marina Fuser. Since October 2014 the editorial collective is being led by Eleftheria Lekakis, Lecturer in Media and Communication in the School of Media, Film and Music at the University of Sussex. RE.FRAMING ACTIVISM also benefits from the expertise of an international editorial advisory board given to its publisher REFRAME. We welcome contributions from academic researchers, activists, writers and media practitioners interested in contributing to RE.FRAMING ACTIVISM. We particularly invite contributions between 500 – 1000 words (or embeddable work in audio/visual formats).
