We're extremely pleased to announce that our (Michael Hoechsmann, Gina Thésée & Paul R. Carr) book


Education for Democracy 2.0: Changing Frames of Media Literacy (2021),


has been awarded a 2022 Society of Professors of Education Outstanding Book Award

and

and 2022 Critic's Choice Book Award from the American Educational Studies Association (AESA)





DESCRIPTION

This diverse and global collection of scholars, educators, and activists presents a panorama of perspectives on media education and democracy in a digital age. Drawing upon projects in both the formal and non-formal education spheres, the authors contribute towards conceptualizing, developing, cultivating, building and elaborating a more respectful, robust and critically-engaged democracy. Given the challenges our world faces, it may seem that small projects, programs and initiatives offer just a salve to broader social and political dynamics but these are the types of contestatory spaces, openings and initiatives that enable participatory democracy. This book provides a space for experimentation and dialogue, and a platform for projects and initiatives that challenge or supplement the learning offered by traditional forms of education. The Foreword is written by Divina Frau-Meigs (Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris) and the Postscript by Roberto Apirici and David García Marín (UNED, Madrid).
