Journal of Co-operative Studies Vol 54 No 3 (No 163 Supplement) Late Winter 2021
Constructing the co-operative imaginary: Journalism’s past, present, and emerging contributions
To mark the 150th anniversary of Co-op News, this special issue focuses specifically on co-operative journalism and co-operatives in the media. It celebrates co-operative journalism's contribution to the co-operative movement, points to the general invisibility of co-operatives in mainstream media, and considers media co-operatives as an avenue to respond to and recover an ailing news sector. As such we include this special issue (a supplement to No. 163) as an addition to our usual three journal output per year.
