Event description

Description

Access, Participation and the Mediatised World

In a world replete with media networks, content and services delivered through traditional and newer wired and wireless environments, the opportunities for access to, and participation in, media are seemingly proliferative. The accessible and inclusive nature of media is often emphasised and celebrated strongly by commercial players and governmental interests, as well as a considerable number of academic voices. Others, hailing from academia and civil society quarters, whilst recognising the accessibility and participative affordances of media also point to serious deficiencies.

This conference will be a platform for debate and discussion, asking critical questions that engage with a range of ideas and approaches.
