New Media and Development Communication: Fall 2008

"New Media and Development Communications" is a course created and led by Professor Anne Nelson in 2007 at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). This website represents the second year of the class, from the fall of 2008. Twenty-five students from many different countries researched the impact of new media -- both positive and negative -- in the developing world. They brought an extraordinary range of languages and professional experiences to their research (see below). Their web pages represent their individual perspectives, and not necessarily those of the instructor or Columbia University.

This site builds on the work of last year's class, which can be viewed at: http://www.columbia.edu/itc/sipa/nelson/newmediadev/home.html.
