International Blogging: Identity, Politics and Networked Publics

International Blogging: Identity, Politics and Networked Publics

This book is part of an increasing effort in media studies to address the parochialism of contemporary scholarship by considering media practices and products developed throughout the world. The aim of International Blogging is to broaden consideration of blogging, a now major worldwide new-media practice, by emphasizing the significance of context. Contributions by scholars from nine countries that testify to the complex set of factors that shape national and language-based blogospheres were included. The book’s case studies focus on blogs that originate outside the United States since a large body of work on American blogging already exists.
