5 Communication Technology and Human Development: Recent Experiences in the Indian Social Sector

Avik Ghosh

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0761934383 / 9780761934387, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The role communication can play in facilitating social change and furthering the goals of development programmes is now widely acknowledged. However, what is not so well appreciated is that the application of communication technologies in social development programmes is a complex task which requires a professional approach. Based on more than 30 years of the author`s personal experience, this book provides an understanding of the practical issues that arise in the planning and implementation of communication programmes to bring about behaviour change in the Indian context. The first section of the book provides a historical background to the evolving nature of the application of communication technology in development. Case studies of innovative applications of communication technology, both in India and abroad, are described to assist a holistic understanding of the evolution of the role of development communiation. In Section II, the author presents recent and major initiatives in the design and implementation of communication strategies in three important social sectors—literacy, population issues and rural development (including poverty alleviation). In the concluding chapter, Avik Ghosh draws attention to various critical issues and concerns in the context of India`s development. He argues that the importance of communication in facilitating social change and the need to involve local communities in such initiatives is not sufficiently appreciated by policy-makers.

7 Communication, Culture and Confrontation

Bernard Bel, Jan Brouwer, Biswajit Das, Vibosh Parthasarathi, and Guy Poitevin (eds)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 8132102274 / 9788132102274, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The third and final volume in the series on Communication Processes, Communication, Culture and Confrontation is a bold attempt at breaking conceptual and methodological impasses which stifle communication studies. Departing from established frameworks and dated technological metaphors such as ‘transmission? the present volume explores and analyses different forms of communication media in relation to the cultural configurations and contending forces that permeate them. Positioned at the interface of culture and communication studies, the discourse in the book engages with multiple voices, bringing together academic scholars and grassroot social animators. Exploring seven different popular cultural forms, such as rituals, songs, narratives, calendar art, pamphlets, and so on, through 18 case studies, it goes on to suggest a complex model of communication. In this framework, cultures cannot be viewed as items exchanged in the hegemonic space of global communication. Cultural configurations display themselves as ‘evolutive?forms of social communication that weave human beings into collectives and bind these collectives with one another—all permeated with the power parameter. Cultures ‘perform?viable collectives when they come to be apprehended in a field of contending forces: a milieu of exchange, encounter, confrontation and possibly conflict. This volume will be invaluable for students of communication, culture studies, sociology and journalism. Printed Pages: 504. 029604
