Political Video Mashups as Allegories of Citizen Empowerment

Here’s a quick pointer to an article I co-wrote with Richard Edwards for the journal, First Monday, “Political Video Mashups as Allegories of Citizen Empowerment.“  The article focuses on three modes of political mashup: advocacy, protest, and commentary through three videos that commented on the 2008 election, Vote Different, Imagine This, and Godfather IV, and was itself born through a conversation that began online soon after Vote Different appeared in 2007 when Richard and I wrote articles for In Media Res and Flow, respectively.  It’s the first time I’ve co-written a peer-reviewed article, and I think it turned out well (and was definitely fun to write).
