International and intercultural communications in the age of digital media
The conference International and Intercultural Communications in the Age of Digital Media raised questions regarding diversity within international and intercultural digital media environments; such as:
- What are the most pressing questions facing media and communications scholars today, and how are they shaped by the discipline’s international, institutional contours?
- What does the desire to ‘de-westernize’ media and communications studies say about relations between the empirical and the theoretical; where we find examples of media cultures in action, and what ideas we use to make sense of them?
- Is disciplinarity still a workable idea?
- How do all of these questions work their way into studies that are not directly about any of them?
- Or are these even the right questions to ask?
