First Comprehensive Book on Bangladesh's Media

Eds: Shoesmith  & Gelino

A new book on Bangladeshi media has been published recently. The book is first of its kind that is an anthology of contemporary media of Bangladesh written in English and published from an internationally reputed publishing house (Intellect Books,Bristol/Chicago). The title of the book is Bangladesh's Changing Mediascape edited by Brian Shoesmith and Jude Gelino. I have contributed two chapters in the anthology: 1. 'The Profile and Activity of Citizen Journalists: A Study on Bangla Blog Community' 2. 'Independent Cinema in Bangladesh: Its Roots, Growth, Challenges and Opportunities'.
