Editorial Reviews

Review

«Through a meshing of public and private worlds, from writing Fanfiction to the improvisation of everyday life events, the work presented in this volume displays a range, and seemingly indefatigable examples of engaging youth in meaningful dis-course about the world around them. The performances use the lan-guages of joy, anger, frustration, vulnerability, and hope to confront stereotypes about people marginalized in American society.» (Yolanda Sealey- Ruiz - Teachers College, Columbia University)
«In Arts, Media, and Justice: Multimodal Explorations with Youth, Vasudevan, DeJaynes, and their contributors in effect take as their project to teach us to see more clearly, making visible youthful populations that customarily reside for most people either in the institutional shadows of group homes, the court system, and detention centers, or in the stark light shone by media to feed a societal fascination with youthful deviance.» (Glynda Hull - University of California, Berkeley)

Dr. Glynda Hull elegantly summarizes the book in the forward by saying, "In Arts, Media, and Justice: Multimodal Explorations of Youth, Vasudaven, DeJaynes, and their contributors in effect take as their project to teach us how to see more clearly, making visible youthful populations that customarily reside for most people either in the institutional shadows of groups homes, the court system, and detention centers, or in the stark light shone by media to feed a societal fascination with youthful deviance" (ix).

This book has so many generative layers for a multitude of audiences. As a student, I was privileged to read the narratives of the youth and facilitators, which illuminated the voices of young people that we rarely hear. As a scholar, I am able to see how my colleagues have enacted a project of passion that encourages me to reconsider the ways in which I see youth and media. Furthermore, these scholars have taken seriously the work that the youth have done and written about it in an honest and compassionate way, which is a blueprint for any researcher working with youth. As an educator, I am impressed and inspired by the ways the facilitators have taken their pedagogical practices seriously in their work, despite the fact they are not in traditional school settings. As an activist, I see this book as a call to action to provide these sorts of spaces and opportunities for youth to interact with media.
