Annual Conference of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR)

Tue Jul 15, 2014 (All day) - Sat Jul 19, 2014 (All day)

This Hyderabad, India, event - full details provided here: - will explore the dynamics of media systems, communication patterns, and organisational relationships within a new "framing" of region as a physical and conceptual category. The International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) holds that the breaking down of some the world's walls has created an uncertainty about the geographies and substantive nature of the regions they had once defined. This includes physical, ideological, economic, and cultural boundaries. "Mobility, migration and disembodied interactions by cyberspace further complicate the notion of region as a conceptual and experiential category." Amongst the questions that conference participants will explore include: What are the politics that drive media discourse, organisation, and economics? What kind of presence is possible in this redefined regional space, and how does region become a real and imagined construct across new media presences? What sorts of practices then become key to media and communication spaces enclosed in or defined by this new frame?
