Media for people in cities : a study of community media in the urban context by Unesco( Book )
14 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
Two propositions formed the basis for the study described in this report: (1) that the institutions of mass media and education have not adjusted to cope with the problems of newly formed cities or with urban disintegration in older industrialized cities, and (2) that marginal urban groups have a need for greater control over their lives and the use of community media is one way this basic need can be met. An introductory chapter provides a rationale for the study (a product of the urban community media project of Unesco), defines terms used in the study, summarizes the characteristics and functions of community media, suggests desirable criteria for community media, summarizes the internal limitations of community media projects and the external constraints on them, and concludes with a short essay on the historic context of urbanization. Nine case studies covering developments in Africa, the Arab World, Australia, Trinidad and Tobago, Europe, India, Japan, Latin America, North America, and the Philippines are then presented. The case studies cite examples of places where a more equitable distribution of power in urban communications has been achieved. A concluding statement and lists of proposals for related activities, future activities, and further research on this topic complete the report. (Rbw)

Community control of local radio by Peter M Lewis( Book )
4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
This study was designed to determine to what extent local communities control the local radio which serves them, by what formal mechanisms their control is secured, and the underlying assumptions and goals which govern the practice of the professionals who have charge of the facilities. Two British radio stations, bbc Radio Bristol and the Independent Local Radio (ilr) station--Thames Valley Broadcasting in Reading, are reviewed, as is stad Radio Amsterdam. Contexts in which each of the stations operate are provided, giving background information on their creation and leading into separate discussions of each station's profile, including start date, studio address, area served, frequency, staff, finances, hours of operation, programming and operations control. In each case the means and forms of local input are examined. An appendix gives a brief description of two Canadian radio stations, Radio Cinq, Montreal, and Vancouver Co-op Radio. (Rao)

Community media : field, theory, policy by Peter M Lewis( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"The submission consists of twenty-three outputs, spanning over three decades. These range from books and chapters to reports, journal articles and edited publications. The accompanying commentary aims to set the submitted work in context, demonstrate that it constitutes a coherent whole, and that it makes an independent and original contribution to knowledge and the advancement of the academic field of community media within the discipline of media studies. A number of overlapping contexts are summarised: the socio-historical setting in which the practice of electronic community media first emerged; the 'personal/professional' context in which reflection on practical experience led to developments in theory and policy analysis; the academic context of the development of British media studies where at first radio was marginalised and there was no discursive space for the notion of community media, then a later stage where a wider range of theoretical contexts brought community and alternative media into the academic frame. Three main sections discuss, respectively, the candidate's contribution to the identification and categorisation of community media, the application to it of theoretical perspectives, and the development of policy analysis. All three areas, it is argued, were part of a wider strategy aimed at bringing recognition to the field and which involved activities outside the scope of the submission (advocacy, interventions in mainstream media) but which are part of the context of the submitted work. For that reason an appendix (B) lists all the candidate's publications on the subject, while others list conference presentations and other relevant activities. In addition, the documentation includes a brief career summary and statements by co-authors." -- Abstract
Promoting social cohesion : the role of community media by Peter M Lewis( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This report was commissioned by the Group of Specialists on Media Diversity to identify the most important issues concerning the relationship between media and social cohesion; to summarise existing definitions of "third sector media" and classify the sector according to aspects such as ownership, structure, funding, content/programming, audience involvement and different platforms, including new media; to discuss the positive and negative effects of third sector media with regard to social cohesion; and to describe existing measures to support third sector media. The report draws on academic studies and reports from UNESCO, AMARC (the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters) and other NGOs and begins with a summary of some of the relevant theoretical concepts that relate to social cohesion, such as identity, community and citizenship." -- Executive summary, page 5
