About the Journal of Civic Media

The objective of the Journal of Civic Media (JCM) is to provide a forum for scholars, practitioners, students and the general public to read about and discuss the complex landscape of civic media. In pursuing this objective, a combination of scholarly discussion, practical civic application and relevant news in the field of civic media will be considered for publication.

JCM is a publication of Engagement Lab at Emerson College in Boston. The journal is coordinated and edited by graduate students in the Civic Media: Art and Practice master’s degree program. Columns are reviewed and published in alignment with a twice-yearly, themed editorial schedule.
