How should we understand media in Africa on its own terms? 
"Handbook in African Media Research", edited by Bruce Mutsvairo, tries to tell us just that, as it attempts to fill the gap in empirical scholarship of media and communication research in Africa, from an Africanist perspective. The collection draws on expert knowledge of key media and communication scholars in Africa and the diaspora, offering a counter-narrative to existing Western and Eurocentric discourses of knowledge-production. 

As a decolonial turn takes centre stage across Africa, the book rethinks media and communication research in a post-colonial setting and provides empirical evidence as to why some of the methods conceptualised in Europe will not work in Africa.

The result is a thorough appraisal of the current threats, challenges and opportunities facing the discipline on the continent.

In the panel: 

Bruce Mutsvairo, Associate Professor at University of Technology Sydney's School of Communication, Editor of Handbook in African Media Research

Kristin Skare Orgeret, Professor at the Department of Journalism and Media Studies at OsloMet

Helge Rønning, Professor at the Institute for media and communications at the University of Oslo 

Moderator for the evening is Hilde Arntsen, Associate Professor at the Department of International Studies and Interpreting at OsloMet
