European Sociological Association
2013 Conference "Crisis, Critique and Change"
University of Torino, Italy

The ESA 2013 conference asks the overall questions:
What is behind the crisis? Which crisis is it? Whose critique is required? What changes are needed?

RN18 - Sociology of Communications and Media Research: Communication, Crisis, Critique and Change
Call for Abstracts

(click on panel titles for submission...)

ESA RN18 focuses in its conference stream on the discussion of how
crisis, critique and societal changes shape the study of media,
communication & society today. The overall questions we want to address are:

Which crises (including the financial and economic crisis of capitalism,
global wars and conflicts, ecological crisis, the crisis of democracy,
legitimation crisis, etc) are we experiencing today and how do they
influence media and communication in contemporary society?

What are the major changes of society, the media, and communication that
we are experiencing today?

What forms of political critique (political movements) and academic
critique (critical studies, critical media sociology, critical theory,
etc) are emerging today and are needed for interpreting and changing
media, communication and society?

ESA RN18 is calling for both general submissions on “Communication,
Crisis, Critique and Change” that address these questions as well as
more specific submissions that address a number of specific session topics.
