No More Potlucks: A Case Study
Staci Tucker 

No More Potlucks (NMP) serves as a fantastic example of open feminist scholarship, both based on its regional success and regard in the global academic feminist community. NMP is a model of resistance against closed academic scholarship, serving alongside increasingly adopted examples of open access, collaborative, and anti-capitalist projects, founded on queer and feminist ideology.

Ghana Think Tank: A Participatory Media Case Study
Roya Amirsoleymani

 On a number of levels, Ghana Think Tank strives to dissolve dichotomies, or disrupt those notions of difference that perpetuate cultural misunderstandings and reinforce hegemonic power structures. By using self-organized citizen think tanks in “developing” nations to propose solutions to problems in “developed” ones, the project helps develop connections between cultural, social, political, and geographical groups that are often presented as inherently different or without points of convergence or intersection, presenting opportunities for intercultural connection and community interaction across false binary oppositions like East/West, first world/third world, religious/non-religious, democracy/theocracy, and old/young. In the context of participatory media, Ghana Think Tank also breaks down a very particular assumed dichotomy: that of real/virtual worlds.
