This is the second of two bonus episodes in Season 4 of The J Word related to an award supported by Journalism Practice for early career scholars that is part of the annual Social Justice + Media Symposium (https://www.sjmsymposium.org).
This episode features one of the award’s honorable mentions and the award recipient. Felipe Navarro Nicolette at the National University of Córdoba, in Argentina, is one of the honorable mentions and discusses his work about community radio in Patagonia. Specifically, he shares how community members there are using alternative radio stations to access the human right of communication and the building of community.
Award recipient Tumi Mampane, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Communication and Media at the University of Johannesburg, the Chair in African Feminist Imagination at Nelson Mandela University, and a lecturer at the University of the Free State, discusses her research on Black feminist ethnography, some of which is forthcoming in the journal African Identities, that helps us understand the role of qualitative research in understanding the limitations of dominant media and news representations of place and people.
