LSE Media and Communications PhD Symposium 2014: Power in Media and Communications: Change or Continuity?
Date: Thursday 5 June 2014, 09:00–18:00
The role and distribution of power is a central issue to media and communications studies. However, there is room for debate as to whether various forms of media, media institutions, mediation practices and communications labour demonstrate substantively new forms of power or if they are simply more recent manifestations of established systems. This symposium seeks to provide a forum for PhD students to engage with questions of either change or continuity in the media and communications landscape. Submissions can be works in progress, provocative ideas or engaging questions as well as completed research. This year’s keynote speech will be given by Professor Nick Couldry. The symposium will take place on Thursday 5 June 2014 from 09:00 to 18:00, and will consist of four panels. Each panelist will present their research in 15 minutes, with talks followed by a Q&A session.
Please send abstracts of 150–200 words to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 31 March.
