    What makes this book so valuable besides, of course, the plethora of trans media strategies a term coined by the author is Costanza Chock s position as scholar, media maker, and activist This is not an individual watching from the periphery or simply analyzing large data sets to make broad reaching declarations about what is or is not an effective protest action Rather, Costanza Chock has spent years working in the academy, as well as producing their own media, and most importantly working a What makes this book so valuable besides, of course, the plethora of trans media strategies a term coined by the author is Costanza Chock s position as scholar, media maker, and activist This is not an individual watching from the periphery or simply analyzing large data sets to make broad reaching declarations about what is or is not an effective protest action Rather, Costanza Chock has spent years working in the academy, as well as producing their own media, and most importantly working as an activist It s their first person perspective that results in a thorough and meaningful understanding of the struggles that activist media makers encounter, while their years of scholarly experience allows them to frame those struggles in broader contexts The writing itself is extremely accessible while never feeling like it forgoes complexity for that readability I strongly recommend this book for any media maker seeking to work closely with activists and certainly vice versa

    Decent book that centers upon immigrants rights organizing and use of digital media Offers some core concepts about social movement s relationship to the use of technology Not much new offered in terms of ideas e.g digital literacy, not fetishizing technology, digital divide, etc , but an important text in offering a centralized focus on immigrant rights social movements connected to Los Angeles Reads a bit stilted at times like the translation from dissertation to book not completely made Decent book that centers upon immigrants rights organizing and use of digital media Offers some core concepts about social movement s relationship to the use of technology Not much new offered in terms of ideas e.g digital literacy, not fetishizing technology, digital divide, etc , but an important text in offering a centralized focus on immigrant rights social movements connected to Los Angeles Reads a bit stilted at times like the translation from dissertation to book not completely made, but overall a solid work
