*Section on Communication, Information Technologies and Media Sociology
Refereed Roundtables (1 hour)*

The CITAMS roundtable sessions are open to any paper falling under the
topics present in our section's name: Communication, Information
Technologies, and Media Sociology section of the American Sociological
Association (CITAMS) Thematically similar papers are grouped together into
an average of 10-12 groups after submissions are closed. At the table,
presenters are invited to discuss their research with authors who share
similarly themed submissions. Generally, each presenter is given 5-10
minutes to give an overview of their work to the other CITAMS members
sitting at the table with them. Discussion about the table’s corpus of
knowledge is pursued until the end of the session. The goal of these
roundtables is to foster community among the CITAMS members as well as
offering an opportunity for previously disconnected researchers to meet
each other. Previous table themes include: Media Sociology and Social
Movements, Games and Play through Media and Communication Technology,
Inequality and Communication; Communication Technology and Organizations;
Communication and Social Construction, Representations and Resistance,
Collective Meaning, Media Sociology and Issues of Access, and nearly every
other configuration of media sociology and communication technologies can
consider. Each paper presented at the roundtable is also invited to be
considered for the yearly CITAMS special issue of the Journal of
Information Communication and Society.
