Keynote Talk: Prof. Peter Golding (Northumbria University, UK) â 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.
