Today I finally got my copy of this exciting new book, Keywords in Remix Studies, edited by Eduardo Navas, Owen Gallagher, and xtine burrough and published by Routledge. One of the keywords chapters, "Participatory Politics" (ignore the fact that's actually two words, please), was written by Professor Henry Jenkins and I based on a brainstorming discussion in the Civic Paths research group with members Samantha Close, Yomna Elsayed, Michelle Forelle, Rogelio Lopez, and Emilia Yang (and subsequent "hotspot" blog post), which generated the examples Henry and I used to discuss the concept.

Writing with Henry was, it goes without saying, an incredible experience, and I'm really proud of the chapter it resulted in. If you're interested in reading the chapter, you can download a scanned copy here or on my CV page.
