Abstract:This issue of 'Communicatio' took shape against the backdrop of global debate on the participatory turn and public participation. The articles in this edition are positioned to investigate the question of what it is that the public are participating in. It investigates 'public self-expressions' - that is, ordinary people expressing their self-identities in public, where 'public' refers to both ordinary people and to the fact that they share their identities in the public sphere. Contributions on Africa: From self-expression to social aggression: cyberbullying culture among South African youth on Facebook (Matjorie Rachoene, Toks Oyedemi); Burning to consume? 'Izikhothane' in Daveyton as aspirational consumers (Jabulani Mnisi); Public self-expression: decolonising researcher- researched relationships (Keyan Tomaselli, Lauren Dyll-Myklebust); 'Ubuntu' and the value of self-expression in the mass media (Thaddeus Metz).
