Community media in conflict

Clemencia Rodriguez, communications scholar and activist, has just posted a welcome email to the new listserv communitymediainconflict-l. She writes:

I have created this list for those of us doing research on, or working with, or supporting community media in areas of armed conflict. The idea is to begin consolidating a community among us, an inclusive community of practitioners, media producers, academics, people at NGOs, at international organizations, etc.

She also includes a link to an inspiring recent article by Diana Coryat, co-founder of New York based Global Action Project (G.A.P.). In Challenging the Silences and Omissions of Dominant Media: Youth-led Media Collectives in Colombia, Coryat describes two exemplary youth-led media projects, exploring how they use media to engage in discursive struggle, how they challenge dominant narratives about their communities, and how they do this under difficult conditions (conflict, violence, poverty).
