Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) published “Development Communication in Directed Social Change — A Reappraisal of Theory & Practice”, edited by Srinivas R. Melkote.
Ørecomm co-director Thomas Tufte contributed to the book with a chapter on “Facing Violence and Conflict with Communication: Possibilities and limitations of storytelling and entertainment-education”.
In this book, the authors address one, some, or many of the following: documenting, studying, analyzing, constructing, and deconstructing the role and place of development communication scholarship and practice in directed social change. Importantly, this volume attempts to re-conceptualize and re-operationalize the real meaning and goal of development today and then proceeds to look at development communication scholarship and practice in terms of its fit and niche within a more appropriate goal of directed social change.
