About Contraflows

A space for sharing of information, debates and discussion about journalism and media outside of the dominant global spheres of media production. The blog title derives from the assumption that in the era of global media, information and cultural flows take place not only from the global centres of the US and Europe to the peripheries, but rather in complex and unpredictable patterns across the globe. This blog wants to highlight some of these counterflows, but will also comment on media developments elsewhere that have a bearing on the South, especially Africa.
