Special UDC issue of The Political Economy of Communication

Of all the things I have participated in during my academic career I am most proud of the 2015 UDC Conference in Toronto. Alongside my comrades Nicole Cohen and Gretchen King, we put together a fantastic conference highlighting the circuits of struggle. Subsequent to this, I have had the honor of working alongside Jessica Lapp as the special guest editor of the IAMCR journal The Political Economy of Communication. It is now a pleasure to announce the publication of a special issue based on some of the proceedings from the 2015 UDC Conference. The authors include Harry Cleaver, Nick Dyer-Witheford, John Sullivan, Ian Davis, and Patrick MacInnis—as well as an editorial by yours truly and Jessica Lapp. See the special issue here: http://www.polecom.org/index.php/polecom
