Abstract

Networked digital platforms have destabilised and reconfigured long-established forms of knowledge production and communication, changing the ways in which we consume media and engage with the public sphere and expert knowledge. In this extract from their new book, The Public and Their Platforms, Mark Carrigan and Lambros Fatsis, outline how these platforms have reshaped the creation of public knowledge and why researchers should seek to engage with this transformed knowledge hierarchy in new ways.
