Abstract

The articles in this special section strengthen our understanding of the relationship between media, collective action, and participation in social change by exposing how knowledge about it is produced. They add to a body of literature that has scrutinized the social organization of public communication — through broadcasting media, the press, or social media — in the attempt to explain why some visions for social change enter into our collective consciousness while others fall short of the mark.
