It was one of the nicest collaborations ever. It started by deleting an email with the call for papers by each of us since it did not sound relevant to our work. However, once we started discussing the topic, we came with a common ready framework for the book chapter that you can now read here.

The chapter A Competent Participant in the New Media Landscape: Promoting an Interdisciplinary Perspective was written in collaboration with Melodine Sommier, Anne Laajalahti and Panu Uotila. All of us has been working at that time in the Department of Communication, University of Jyväskylä (Melodine is now in the University of Rotterdam) and we are also alumni of the ECREA Doctoral Summer School. The book Politics, Civil Society and Participation: Media and Communications in a Transforming Environment (ed. by Kramp et al.), where our chapter is published, is the annual publication of this Summer School, but first time it included chapters by SuSo alumni.
