Communication, Culture and Community
The book is organized into three sections. Part One questions whether civic engagement is a disappearing trait in a society that increasingly seems to focus on the individual. Part Two explores the foundations of communication, culture, and community. Part Three details practices and policies of civic engagement.
Opening with a call for re-engagement, the text then moves on to address topics such as high quality civic education, building social capital, the role of citizenship in students’ daily lives, cultural approaches to communication, and theoretical and pedagogical perspectives on global citizenship.
Communication, Culture and Community can be used in courses on communication, education, and political science.
