This book rethinks the public, public communication and public action in a globalising and mediated world. Web-based interactions, community empowerment initiatives, participation experiments, transnational struggles and new ways of understanding and occupying public space offer a range of promising speculations about the renewal of publics and publicness. Rethinking the public develops novel theoretical perspectives for investigating the formation of publics, focusing on four overlapping processes: claiming publics; personalizing publics; mediating publics; and, becoming public. These four themes are key to rethinking how publics are brought into being and how to develop research agendas into their formation. Using fascinating case studies, the book offers a rich set of methodological resources on which other researchers can draw and foregrounds the need to interrogate the boundaries between theory, research and politics. It is ideal reading for higher level undergraduate and masters programmes in politics, geography, public policy, sociology, social policy, public administration and cultural studies, and will also be relevant to academics across a similar range of disciplines as well as students on research masters and other methods courses.
