Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


In this paper we analyse data from interviews with five African- Australian media producers. Migrant media production is seldom studied yet has serious implications. We focus on three key themes present in the interview data: participants motivations for producing media, the audiences that they target, and the cross-cultural connections created between African and non-African Australians. The research findings highlight the importance of African-Australian media for self-representation, as well as its potential to create positive links between African- Australians and the broader Australian society
