I will be presenting the work of Undercurrents in Liverpool on May 1st at this symposium.
Cyberspace, Alternative Media, and Activism Symposium
Date: 01 May 2013
This symposium will create a space for discussion and analysis of
alternative media output that is now found within the online realm. It
will specifically focus on new media forms open to dissenting voices,
politicized identities, and movements that are working for positive
social change but are marginalized or ignored by the mainstream media.
Bringing together academics and producers, this event will facilitate a
dialogue on how and why diverse resistant media are thriving within
Our keynote speaker for the event will be Professor Chris Atton, an
expert on new media and political communication, radical online
journalism, the media of social movements, fanzines, and community
media. He is author of 'Alternative Media, An Alternative Internet:
Radical Media, Politics, and Creativity', and 'Alternative Journalism'
(with James F. Hamilton).
