Question
This paper proposes a model for developing new literacies of citizenship in the digital society. Using Bauman’s metaphor, we contrast the 'solid' culture of the 19th and 20th centuries to the ‘liquid’ information culture of the 21st century in which Web 2.0 plays a fundamental role and affects many aspects of our culture. We first review the main features of Web 2.0 through six major dimensions: as a universal library, global market, as a giant hypertext jigsaw puzzle, a public space for social communities, a territory for multimedia and audiovisual expression, and as a space for multiple virtual interactive
environments. In the second part, we propose an integrated theoretical model of literacy for the citizen. This model is based on two pillars: the areas or dimensions of literacy, and the competences (instrumental, cognitive-intellectual, sociocommunicative,
emotional and axiological) to be developed in citizens. Finally we contend that the new literacies amount to a civic right and a necessary condition for social development and a more democratic society in the 21st century.
Question
Predatory, open-access publishers are those that unprofessionally exploit the author-pays model of open-access publishing (Gold OA) for their own profit. Typically, these publishers spam professional email lists, broadly soliciting article submissions for the clear purpose of gaining additional income. Operating essentially as vanity presses, these publishers typically have a low article acceptance threshold, with a false-front or non-existent peer review process. Unlike professional publishing operations, whether subscription-based or ethically-sound open access, these predatory publishers add little value to scholarship, pay little attention to digital preservation, and operate using fly-by-night, unsustainable business models.

Trends School Integration Polls
Frankenberg, Erica and Rebecca, Jacobsen (2011). Trends School Integration Polls. Public Opin. Q. 75(4): 788-811 doi:10.1093/poq/nfr016.
Abstract:
Dating back to the mid-1950s, questions regarding school integration have become a staple of public opinion polls. As the United States transitions to an era where virtually all integration efforts must be voluntarily adopted by school boards, public support for integration is more important than ever. To understand the public's shifting view on this topic, we review poll questions in three broad areas: public support for school racial integration, public preferences for an ideal school composition, and beliefs about the outcomes of school integration. Additionally, we consider the public's opinion relative to Supreme Court cases. The variety of question types, formats, and nature of the topic make interpreting the public's views challenging, but some generalizations are possible: widespread support for the ideal of integration is consistent, but more ambiguity emerges about the specifics of accomplishing desegregation.

Question
NEW MEDIA? RE-IMAGINING TECHNOLOGY, CULTURE AND THE SOCIAL explores the enduring fascination with the idea of novelty through a new media lens.
The brand names in the discourse are familiar: Twitter, Facebook, Google, Digg, Tumblr, MySpace, to name a few. But these buzzwords reveal more than their commercial application. Critical analyses of these tools reveal ongoing dialogue and tensions between technology, culture and society. As these vectors – with ever-shifting contours, contested meanings and competing claims – overlap, they raise important questions about what can be claimed by ‘new media’ and why and how this term maintains currency and power within the social realm.
Articles in this issue include:
• Introduction: New media? Re-imagining technology, culture and the social
Zeena Feldman (City University London)
• Designing scripts and performing Kurdishness in diaspora: the online-offline nexus

Question
The Uses and Abuses of Framing Research: Rens Vliegenthart and Liesbet van Zoonen in the European Journal of Communication
‘Framing’ is without any doubt one of the buzz-words in current mass communication research. It is, however, questionable whether it is also a useful concept that helps us understand how news media work. In'Power to the Frame: Bringing Sociology Back to Frame Analysis'in the June 2011 issue of the European Journal of Communication, Rens Vliegenthart and Liesbet van Zoonen critically assess the uses and – as they argue – abuses of ‘framing’ in communication research. They claim that most research at present is notably individualist and voluntarist in its orientation and assumes that both individual journalists and individual audience members are relatively autonomous in their news production and consumption. Their conclusion is clear: the incorporation of a theory of power and the usage of multilevel methods that are sensitive to the social contexts of production and reception of news are imperative for frame and framing research to become useful again in media and communication research.
The article is provocative and implicitly dismisses a whole range of current research, especially that based on content analysis of newspapers, as fairly irrelevant. Their arguments call for response and discussion, about both the merits and dilemma’s of frame and framing research, for instance;
Is it really necessary to distinguish between ‘frame’ and ‘framing’?
Are there good examples of multilevel framing research that contradict the arguments of the authors?
Is it possible to combine social psychological research about framing effects with a theory of power?
Are the authors ‘sociologically biased’?

The Radio Is Dead. Long Live the Radio!
EHU-UPV (Bilbao) Audiovisual Communication and Advertising Department by The International Conference “The Radio Is Dead. Long Live the Radio!” offers an exhaustive approach to the state of this audiovisual medium in the current context of world communications. During two days of meetings, debate and discussion, we will have the opportunity to analyze the new dynamics of interactive radio, the process of rediscovering the medium in relation to new technologies, production methods in this time of transformations, the adaptation of the new professionals, the reformulation of advertising or the new discourses of the radio understood as a communication alternative. A broad and heterogeneous reflection proceeding from the academic world on the radio, a communication medium that has taken up the challenge of “renovation or death” as a condition that must be met in order to resituate itself in the current universe of the mass media.

SCOPE: An Online Journal of Film and Television Studies is inviting academics and postgraduate students to submit reviews of recent film releases and television programmes (length between 2000 and 3500 words). Reviews can be of a single film or TV programme, or more than one title if a strong connection exists. Reviews of retrospective films or TV programmes will be considered but these should make clear why it is especially timely for these to be reviewed (for example, a new box-set, a retrospective etc).

This Tenth International Conference of ISTR marks the 20th anniversary of the formation of this global community of scholars and interested others dedicated to the creation, discussion, and advancement of knowledge pertaining to the Third Sector and its impact on human and planetary well-being and development internationally.
In this era of far-reaching changes in the way that societies are organized, the Third
Sector is playing a critical role and has significantly gained importance in many countries. Democratization and the role of civil society in social integration and participation are in the spotlight with recent mobilizations particularly in the Middle East and ongoing suppression of civil society under authoritarian regimes in parts of the world. New media, social networks and other technological innovations raise new opportunities and challenges for organizing collective action and the diversity of civil society. Marketization and its impact on the Third Sector is attracting renewed research interest as welfare budgets are cut and the role of nonprofits is called into question in difficult fiscal times in many nations. A second type of marketization is also attracting attention particularly the growth of corporate social responsibility (CSR), the emergence of social enterprises and changing philanthropic paradigms. International research toward a better understanding of the implications of these changes continues to gather momentum.
ISTR’s Tenth International Conference in Sienna, Italy offers an excellent opportunity for further dialogue on these and other changes in an environment of rigor, reflexivity, authenticity and creativity. Siena encapsulates a mix of tradition and innovation that is woven from ancient webs of social engagement and enduring beliefs in justice through periods of peace and conflict. It provides an excellent setting to explore the role of third sector studies as an integrative science with short and long term objectives geared towards understanding and addressing societal concerns. Three exciting plenary sessions will canvas major theoretical and practice developments in the Third Sector and highlight the rich history and accomplishments of the host nation’s Third Sector.
Paper, poster, and panel proposals are invited in response to the overall conference
focus as they relate to the many, diverse and interconnected theme areas that are characteristic of much third sector research.

Philanthropy

Question
This year, ERIH has introduced "Comunicar" in his Journals Index.
The European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) is the only reference index created and developed by European researchers both for their own purposes and in order to present their ongoing research achievements systematically to the rest of the world. It is also a unique project because, in the context of a world dominated by publication in English, it highlights the vast range of world-class research published by humanities researchers in the European languages.

Question
Howard Gardner's work has been "decisive for the evolution of educational models by taking into account the innate potentialities of each individual."
Harvard University psychologist Howard Gardner has won Spain's Prince of Asturias award for social sciences in recognition of his studies of how human intellect expresses itself in different kinds of skills.
The prize was announced Wednesday by a foundation run by Spain's Crown Prince Felipe. It said the American's work has been "decisive for the evolution of educational models by taking into account the innate potentialities of each individual."
Eight Asturias prizes are awarded each year covering the arts, human rights, sciences and sports. This was the second. They each include a 50,000euro ($74,000) cash award and a sculpture by Joan Miro.
Last year the social sciences award went to the archaeological team that unearthed China's Terracotta Warriors of Xian in China.
