Toward an intersectional political economy of alternative media resources - Sandra Jeppesen

13. Juni 2018 von 12:00 bis 14:00 Uhr im ZeMKI, Linzer Str. 4, Raum 60.070

Scholars have noted challenges in sustaining alternative media, domination of alternative media by middle-class white cis-males, and the importance of immaterial resources. Therefore the Media Action Research Group workshops and one-on-one interviews with media activists across Canada. Our findings reveal that: (1) some activists create media as a labour of love, while others are committed to equitable and fair compensation; (2) intersectional oppressions play a gatekeeping role in access to grants and paid positions; (3) activists are challenged by a lack of time, capacity, and skills; and (4) immaterial resources such as affective labour, relationship building, resource-sharing and skill-sharing are key to sustainable media projects. Engaging an intersectional political economy framework, we critically analyze alternative media resource practices, focusing on key contradictions, debates and best practices.
