Abstract A version of the public sphere has always existed “as an appendage to democratic theory” (Dahlgren 1991, p. 1). Citizen's media theory (Rodriguez 2001) encourages us to consider grassroots media projects in terms of how democracy is enhanced, participants are empowered and citizenship is enacted outside of the parameters of enfranchisement. Can engagement within the public sphere benefit democracy, as imperfect as democracy may be? Does public sphere activity enhance a person's societal integration? To answer these questions I examine media produced by and for prisoners -- one of the most excluded sections of society (to the point of facing 'civil death').
