Participatory Media & Thai Politics: Roles of YouTube and Blogs

With Thailand’s elections coming up in a few days, I thought it was worth mentioning that I’ve got a couple of book chapters (co-authored with Bangkok University’s Treepon Kirdnark) on the intersections of participatory media and Thai politics coming out later this year.

“Digitizing Discontent: YouTube and Thailand’s Red Shirt Uprising” will appear in Ralph Berenger’s edited volume, Social Media Go to War: Rage, Rebellion and Revolution in the Age of Twitter.   

“The Blogosphere in the ‘Land of Smiles’: Citizen Media and Political Conflict in Thailand” will be part of Tatyana Dumova and Richard Fiordo’s  Blogging in the Global Society: Cultural, Political and Geographical Aspects.

With all the attention on the Middle East, it’s worth considering how other parts of the world are using networked communication forms amidst political turmoil.
