WikiLeaks: From Popular Culture to Political Economy

(Links to all articles are below…)

A Special Section of the International Journal of Communication on WikiLeaks—for which I was the Guest Editor — has just come out. It is a collection of essays by leading scholars on the relevance (over time) of WikiLeaks across a variety of academic areas. Of course, as the Guest Editor, I’m biased…but I think that the essays are really excellent.
