IAMCR – International Association for Media and Communication Research Conference

July 15, 2014 – July 20, 2014 all-day
Hyderabad, India

Region As Frame: Politics, Presence, Practice

The conference theme seeks to explore the dynamics of media systems, communication patterns and organizational relationships within this new “framing” of region as a physical and conceptual category. The theme thus lends itself to panels and papers dealing with a wide range of specific sub-themes and topics. These may include:

  • What are the politics that drive media discourse, organization and economics?
  • What kind of presence is at all 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?
