Conference "Communication, Crisis, and Critique in Contemporary Capitalism"

New deadline for abstract submissions: July 20th, 2012
Keynote Talk: Prof. Peter Golding (Northumbria University, UK) – Why a
Sociologist should take Communications and Media Seriously
We are living in times of global capitalist crisis that require
rethinking the ways we organize society, communication, the media, and
our lives. In the social sciences, there is a renewed interest in
critical studies, the critique and analysis of class and capitalism, and
critical political economy. The overall goal of this conference is to
foster scholarly presentations, networking, and exchange on the question
of which transitions media and communication and media sociology are
undergoing in contemporary society. The conference particularly welcomes
contributions that are inspired by sociological theories, critical
studies, and various strands and traditions of the critical study of
media & society.
