"Journalism has always overlapped with activism, and certainly does so today. In Journalism as Activism, Adrienne Russell focuses on this overlap and shows how small groups of progressives around causes like Occupy Wall Street are trying to connect activism, technology, and journalism to develop new forms of media aimed not at covering the world, but at changing it."
Rasmus Kleis Nielsen, University of Oxford
"Journalists have traditionally been cast as storytellers, but emerging technologies embed them into stories in ways that radicalize the affective nature of their involvement with events in the making. In Journalism as Activism, Adrienne Russell reconsiders the place of journalists in developing stories, and challenges the traditional dogma of objectivity, thus helping us reimagine the meaning of journalism in contemporary and future societies. Compellingly presented, elegantly written, and deeply original, this is a credo for enlightenment through journalism."
