The impact of new technologies on education, culture and politics
A Comparative Media Studies Panel on "participatory culture"


From the earliest days of Comparative Media Studies (CMS), there has been discussion about how new media shape learning and catalyze novel forms of expression and engagement. Over the years, as Henry Jenkins and the five panelists in this video attest, the CMS community has refined and broadened its study of the impact new technologies have on education, culture and politics.
