Civic Media Project
The Engagement Lab at Emerson College has a project called The Civic Media Project (CMP) which is a collection of short case studies. These case studies are published by scholars and practitioners all over the world. They range from the descriptive to the analytical, from the single tool to the national program, from the enthusiastic to the critical. Each of the case studies collected in this project reflects the practices associated with the intentional effort of one or many individuals to benefit or disrupt a community or institution outside of one's intimate and professional spheres.
