SEMINAR IN MEDIA AND POLITICAL THEORY: CONCEPTS


November 13 - 14

Concordia University, FB630.15

The 2015-16 Seminar in Media and Political Theory: Concepts will take place in the Global Emergent Media (GEM) Lab on Concordia University's Sir George Williams campus (with a second workshop scheduled for April 15-16, 2016). For this iteration, the workshop borrows from the "political concepts" (http://www.politicalconcepts.org/issue1/) conference and online publication model, but reworks it to (1) emphasize "works in progress" (and not fully developed dictionary or lexicon entries), and (2) emphasize and encounter between media theory and political theory. The aim is to foster generative discussions about a key concepts animating current research, and to bring together a wide range of scholars and subfields across media studies. There are a limited number of spaces for faculty and graduate student participants. To register for the event, please send an email to: gemlab.concordia@gmail.com
