To speak of participation today raises a series of questions on how the presence and use of new media affect modes of social participation. From a variety of theoretical, empirical and methodological perspectives, the contributions in this volume explore participation in different social realms – from everyday life, interpersonal relationships, work and leisure activities to collective and political action. This collection demonstrates that participation is a localised notion, assuming a multitude of shapes under a variety of technological, political, socio-economic, linguistic and cultural conditions.

Review:

«An idea with a history, participation is now the watchword for the digital age. This timely book offers a set of genuinely original and conceptually powerful perspectives on the deep cultural and political dynamics of this much-discussed yet elusive phenomenon. Cosmopolitan in disposition, and adventurous in their thinking, the assembled authors offer us an indispensable critical account of participation, its lures and problems, as well as how to assess its rich possibilities. ‘Cultures of Participation’ is required reading for anyone keen to come to grips with this cardinal concept of contemporary technology and society.» (Gerard Goggin, Professor of Digital Communication, University of New South Wales, Sydney)
«The Internet is no longer a simple world of email and one-way web. This multinational, multicultural book provides meaty fare, showing how people actively use the diversifying Internet.» (Barry Wellman, S.D. Clark Professor of Sociology, University of Toronto)
