November 12, 2009

Journal Radio & Audio Media.gifNovember 12, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — Kevin Howley, associate professor of communication at DePauw University, has a book review published in the current edition (volume 16, issue 2) of the Journal of Radio & Audio Media. Dr. Howley analyzes Rosemary Day's books Community Radio in Ireland: Participation and Multiflows of Communication and Bicycle Highway: Celebrating Community Radio in Ireland.

Howley writes, "In an era when Internet radio and social networking sites such as YouTube and Facebook appear to challenge the rationale of community media, Day's emphasis on community building and development, collective action and participatory communication highlights the relevance of community radio -- and other forms of community media -- to the ongoing struggle for communicative democracy locally, nationally and globally."
