Call for Papers
Media education is at the cusp of major transition and the growth of
technologies has further accentuated the need for contextualizing our
inquiry in understanding the audience whose agential ability includes not
only interpreting text but modifying it through participatory designs.
Further to the individual’s participation, the relationship between
technology and society has become (and has remained) an interesting domain
to explore with the arrival of the Internet and mobile phones. The
conglomeration of the traditional and digital media now accounts for a
radical shift in media literacy and how we engage with it. Interestingly, in
the emerging media literacy driven by the Internet and mobile phones,
children and adults have become composers of content critically engaging
with the media to an extent that the state-civil society relationship has
changed that underlies horizontal communication. However, this optimistic
development resides only in the urban colonies and the rural populace in
India is still far away from the Internet and the information contained
therein. Even where access is privileged, the differential media ecology in
various institutions, government spaces and state apparatuses create a
differentiated user engagement with media and its text. It also sets the
ca(u)se for a contextualized approach of media use that has social,
political, cultural and moral underpinnings.
The key question that needs to be addressed therefore is determining the
direction in which we need to orientate media education. For one, the
pedagogy will require us to invest efforts in discussing the avant-garde
cultural forms engendered by the media that are not mainstream but socially
embedded in the lives of many. Everyone has a major stake in the political
and social process as the (new) media provides an opportunity to all to
engage in civic debates and collectively participate or inform the
decision-making bodies. The laissez faire approach promoted by the Internet
brings the postmodern subject to the fore establishing its moorings in a
fluid and a liberalized space for a profound articulation of the self and
identity. In this context, it would be ideal to explore the Internet in
areas of feminism, cultural geography, information architecture, queer
studies, media activism to name a few. Far more intriguing inquiries into
questions of access and transparency in technologised governance and the
veiled governmentality of institutions will provide insights into power
dynamics as opposed to the democratic potential of the Internet and the
mobile phones.
The subject of ‘subject’ and the culture of use of media began or rather
flourished during the visual regime of television. It therefore would be
ideal to explore how television and the Internet have panned out as medium
for production and consumption. There is obviously a distinct transition
from television-mediated images (text) to the Internet-driven (including
mobile phones) multimodal content comprising games, wikis, blogs, websites
etc. The newer presumptions are what does media education constitute as its
contents page has expanded with the arrival of the digital media. The
considerable popularity the media in general has gained following the
‘digitality’ of content requires us to reformulate strategies and dynamics
of media pedagogy in turn re-appraising media and its cultural products.
That having been said, behind these cultural products there is an underlying
agenda corporates push through stealthily or otherwise into the content. The
seminar will examine the political economy of technologies to gain insights
into media structures, ideologies, citizenship and democracy, governance and
articulation of power in technology mediated interactions.
*Suggested themes for panels, papers and other presentations include (but
are not limited to):*
Media Education for Empowerment
Political Economy of ICTs
Media Ecology
State-citizen-Corporate Relationship through the lens of Media

International Conference on Birds at Coimbatore

Dear friends,
We all are aware about the winged visitors of Coimbatore. These birds - Pelicans, Painted storks etc., have arrived in smaller numbers this year is a worrying factor for us.
The problem of pollution, exploitation and encroachment is the deterring factor. The efforts of NGO’s - to fight for the visitors is gaining pace in Coimbatore. It was the scientific reports of SACON which helped us to prevent commercial exploitations.
Now to strengthen the documentation, their International Conference will help us to conserve the migratory as well as the local birds which depend on our 800 year old heritage structres.
Your participation in the International Conference is welcome. I am submitting the  following message from SACON for your consideration and I am forwarding this message as my personal option.
SACON is organizing an International Congress on Indian Ornithology during 19-23 November 2011 at Coimbatore. (The brochure which contains a brief on the Congress and various symposia envisaged, can be accessed in the conference website (www.iciosacon.in) also for more details).
The Congress would offer a platform for sharing experiences of researchers, conservationists and policy makers from India and abroad, to take stock of the knowledge base, to identify gaps and to deliberate upon strategies for conservation of birds and their habitats. Senior Wild-lifers, scientists and Protected Area Managers would attend the congress. Scientists from 25 states in India and many countries abroad have already submitted their finding for presentation in this conference. We expect about 300 wildlife scientists from India and abroad converging to Coimbatore during the period.
Apart from the scientific deliberations, SACON want to conduct this programme as an event of Coimbatore, where people at large of Coimbatore will also have a role in it. We are planning an exhibition showcasing the wealth of birds and other wildlife in India for the general public in connection with this occasion. This will create environmental awareness among public particularly among thousands of school and college students who are expected to visit the exhibition.
In connection with the conference we are planning to publish a symposium souvenir which will be released during the programme and it will contain scholarly articles from leading scientists and conservationists in India and abroad with messages national leaders and legendary personalities in the field. This souvenir also will be uploaded in the websites and will reach all over the world. We anticipate your support for this cause in the form of a sponsorship / complementary advertisement of your firm in the souvenir. The cheque/DD may be given in favour of The Director, SACON payable at Coimbatore. Those who are willing to contribute may please send the DD within one week in the address below.

Media and Tiger Conservation

Dear Media Professional,
Here is an invitation for you to participate in a three day residential workshop at Parambikulam Tiger Reserve from May 6 -8, 2011.
I wish to register my heartfelt thanks for patiently reading my mails and sometimes replying me too.
Now I wish to offer something which will be of great interest to you.
With full support from Wildlife Conservation Society – India Program, I am organising a 3 day residential workshop for Working Journalists. The theme is Sensitising the Media on Conserving Tigers and their Habitat.
Eminent scientists and conservationists like Shekar Dattatri (Wildlife & Conservation Film maker from Chennai) and Dr.Ravi Chellam ( Country Director – WCS India Program) are to address you for three days in the core jungles of Parambikulam Tiger Reserve which lies adjacent to Anamalai Tiger Reserve, 100 kms to the south of Coimbatore. The dates are from May 6 – 8, 2011.
The idea of the workshop is to highlight the importance of Tigers and its habitat and stress the need for conserving them for a better future. Since the Media ( Press, Television, Radio & New Media) is now playing a vital role in creating awareness, we are happy to invite you.
25  Media persons will be selected for this for WCS – India Program sponsored workshop. Three days’ stay, food and travel/trek inside the Parambikulam Tiger Reserve will be taken care of by the organisers.
You just need to come to Coimbatore by 8 AM on May 6. We will take care of you the next three days and drop you back by 6 PM at Coimbatore on May 8..
Detailed information and discussions will be shared with you on Tiger and Wildlife Conservation by the experts who work in the field. Your participation is likely to enrich you with a detailed information on the status and future of the big cats, Tigers in India.

How to join this camp?
If interested, please write back to me in the Comments box below. 25 working journalists will be selected from Tamil Nadu. Preference will be given to Journalists who have interest in Wildlife, Nature and Conservation.
If needed, I can send an email to your Editor/Publisher requesting him to permit you to attend this event on On Duty Leave. You can also participate in this workshop just on your willingness. We are not insisting any permission letter from your senior colleagues.
Though we are open to all Journalists, we would like this workshop to be utilised by Journalists who work in and around the core forest areas of Tamil Nadu like Nilgiris, Pollachi, Coimbatore, Erode, Sathy, Salem, Krishnagiri, Tirunelveli, Theni, Rajapalayam, Point Calimere etc. Even Journalists from Chennai are also welcome since their ideas and works can reach a wider audience.
If you are not in a position to attend the workshop, you can also pass this message to your colleagues/friends in the Media. Reporters, Sub editors, District Correspondents, Photographers/Videographers working in the main stream media can attend this workshop which is to be held amidst the roar of Tigers and Elephants.
We assure you to serve with a moderate to comfortable stay with hygienic food and healthy thoughts on Conservation despite the fact that event is organised inside a deep jungle. We selected Parambikulam Tiger Reserve to host you because of the healthy practices maintained there in the past 4 years and I personally would rate as the Best managed Tiger Reserve in South India.
We request you to come and relish at a cool place amidst abundant greenery and wildlife, for you had enough of hot trails during the Legislative Election Campaign in Tamil Nadu.
We sincerely believe that our interactive sessions with you on Tiger Conservation will lead to a better future for the national animal through your thoughts and publications.

To postpone is to conserve - Ramachandra Guha

“To postpone is to conserve”, This is not an ordinary statement from any amateur, but from India’s best ever non fiction writer and historian, Padmabhusan Ramachandra Guha.
Guha made this statement while delivering the Salim Ali memorial lecture at Forest College, Coimbatore in the first week of March. He was talking on Ecological Town planning In India - Patrick Geddes way.
Excerpts from his speech:
Talks and thoughts about Wildlife in India was promoted by BNHS, Salim Ali to Sanctuary Magazine.
Thoughts on Forests were initiated from Brandis, Phule, Mor Ben to Chipko movement.
Thoughts on Farming were initiated from Howard, Kumarappa to Organic farmers.
Thoughts on Water were initiated from Bhattacharya, Tagore to Narmada and Tehri campaigns.
But there was only one person who initiated on Ecological Town Planning in India. He was Geddes from Scotland.
Environmentalism in India has ignored the cities. It  started against construction of large dam at Pune in 1921 hy Munshi.
Ninteenth century is known for its Carboniferous Capitalism -
Extortion of nature by man, machine, military and finance.
Respect to Nature, Democracy and Tradition was Geddes way of Town Planning.
Returning to nature is his concept where rights of children and women are protected.
We talk a lot about development and heritage preservation. Here to postpone is to conserve.
Town Planning should involve citizens. Top down approach in Town Planning will be a failure in this case said Ramachandra Guha.
Dr.P.Pramod, Nature Education Officer of SACON and Dr.P.A.Azeez, Director,  SACON stressed the importance of Ecological Town Planning for Coimbatore.
They highlighted how the eight heritage wetlands of Coimbatore are destroyed in the name of Eco and Entertainment tourism.

As a small, but significant step to meet this need and on popular demand, Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) is offering a comprehensive field based course on conservation science and allied social sciences needed to build a conceptually strong framework for effective conservation.
The course will focus on conservation issues at the regional level but with a
global perspective. A set of 6-8 lectures will complement several half a day
discussions and intensive project mode exercises in the field that
will expose students to holistic perspectives, rigorous concepts, innovative tools
and the latest techniques in conservation science. The 7-8 day fieldwork in
the Western Ghats and Eastern Himalayas is designed to maximize the student’s exposure to real-life field situations.
There will be two courses of 15 day duration, one focussed in the
Western Ghats and the other in the Eastern Himalayas. Preference will be given to
North East applicants for the course in the NE. The Eastern Himalayas course is

Wildlife Sticker labels for FREE

Dear Nature Enthusiast,
To sensitise  School Kids towards Nature and Environment, I have prepared a set of LabelsNote and Text book wrappers. which can be pasted in their
These Labels were officially released by NWEA President and Nilgiris Collector Archana PatnaikDr. Rajiv K. Srivastava  at Ooty on March 31, 2010. in the presence of Mudumalai Tiger Reserve Field Director
The set of 24 labels contain images of Birds, Mammals, Reptiles and Butterflies.
All of them were photographed by me (Hence no worry about Copyright issues later) in our Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. I have tried to accommodate their habitat space too in these labels which measure 11 X 6 cms.
They are printed on a sticker sheet. Hence self adhesive. Common name and the Scientific name of the fauna is given to make the students learn them easily.
Free offer: Since I did not print any Wildlife Calendar this year (2010), I am compensating it with the labels.
Students or Parents who are in my mailing list can get a set of 24 labels for FREE. All you need to do is just post a reply in the Comments box below.
It is distributed from  5 PM of April 12, 2010 at
COMFY (Readymade, Casual Apparels store)
127, Thirugnana Sambandam Road, Race Course.
(This shop is diagonally opposite to CSI Bishop Appasamy College of Arts and Science main gate. This is a link road to Race Course from Nilgiris Departmental Store in Avinashi Road, Coimbatore).
Please avoid asking labels through post, because
(a) Postal fares will be costlier than the product cost.
(b) The size of the sheet is 20 X 15 inches. It has to be folded several times and when it reaches you, it will look crumpled too.
A set comes in an A 3 Sheet like this.

Here is a sample label.

Note:

1. After seeing the massive initial response, (even from outside Tamil Nadu), I have printed them in Offset. I have decided to give 500 sets for free only to those who send their request in the COMMENTS box below.
2. Please do not ask for soft copies. I wish to retain the images for my works exclusively.
3. Outstation people - if you are too crazy about this label and not worried about the postal expenses, then you can send stamped, self addressed envelope (Size which can accomodate A4 sheet). Think again - Why spend around Rs.50 for a label sheet which costs around Rs.12. My Home address: C.R.Jayaprakash, 301, G.V.Residency, Sowripalayam, Coimbatore - 641 028.
