The priority program "Mediatized Worlds" at the annual conference of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR)


Members of the priority program give presentations at the annual conference of the IAMCR, July 12th-16th in Montréal, Canada

This year's conference theme "Hegemony or Resistance? On the Ambiguous Power of Communication" seeks to explore the ambiguous relationship of communication towards hegemony and resistance. It relates, for example, to the various ways in which communication has been described not only as a value of our times – echoing an ideal for social transparency and communality – but also as a threat in terms of global domination. This ambiguity has prompted debates in academia about communication being at the same time a value and a tool, a space of consent and one of struggle, and having (more authentic) local and global dimensions.

Members of the DFG-funded priority program "Mediatized Worlds" will present results of the reseach within the priority program to the international scientific community. 

The following presentations will be held by members of the priority program:

Monday, 13th July 2015
