June - July 2017                                                                  

Hello, and welcome to our June - July newsletter for 2017!

Winter is drawing upon us here, and we hope you’re all keeping warm, (or kicking back, and cooling off if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere), with this latest edition of news from the CfCSC.

We start with an exciting news on the publication of the Centre’s world first collaborative report on rural communication services by the FAO. Researchers from five universities, The University of Queensland, the University of Guelph, Reading University, Wageningen University and University of the Philippines Los Baños, studied 19 cases that documented the processes and outcomes of communication mechanisms in rural development initiatives, across Africa, the Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean.

In Student Spotlight, we talk to some of the University of Queensland’s Communication for Social Change Master’s students about their Participatory Needs and Opportunities Assessment Project. They share some of the biggest challenges, most memorable highlights and most important lessons of the experience.

For anyone who missed it, we’re also discussing Dr Scott Downman and Mr. Richard Murray’s enlightening School of Communication and Arts seminar, about hyperlocal journalism and digital disruption. This seminar, with its focus on the real-world, hyperlocal project, Change Makers, was well worth a look in, and we recommend keeping an eye out for Dr Downman and Mr Murray’s new book for an even more in depth analysis of this subject.

We’re also proud to share the latest book in our CSC Palgrave series, Journalism for Social Change in Asia by Dr Scott Downman and Dr Kasun Ubayasiri. This fascinating book will be both useful and powerful for journalists, academics and activists alike.  

To stay up to date with CSC related jobs, conferences and events, check out the June - July Opportunities page.

If you are also searching for an updated literature on CSC, see the recent comprehensive media development publications (July 2016 – June 2017) put together by Christoph Dietz, CAMECO, Aachen, Germany.  

We appreciate all feedback about the newsletter and input on what you would like to see in the future. Please contact to get in touch or share your thoughts.
