Event description

Description

This is the registration for the sixth Media Sociology Preconference, to be held at State System @ Center City on Friday, August 10, 2018. (This is one day before the start of the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in Philadelphia.)

We are please to announce that this year's keynote speaker will be Jen Schradie (Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse). A special plenary session in the afternoon "Media, Power, and Sexuality" will feature Jenny Davis (Australian National University), Mary Chayko (Rutgers), Yuli Patrick Hsieh (RTI), Betty Aldana Marquez (California State University, Monterey Bay), Jessie Sage (Peepshow Podcast), Ruth Tsuria (Seton Hall University), and Apryl Williams (panel organizer and moderator). This plenary is sponsored by Emerald Studies in Media and Communications.

This preconference, now in its sixth consecutive year, is linked to an effort to strengthen media sociology within the ASA: After a long period of negotiation, the media sociology steering committee was able to broker a deal with the Communication and Information Technologies section (CITASA) at the end of 2014. CITASA officially changed its section name to "Communication, Information Technologies and Media Sociology" in 2015 and is officially sponsoring the Media Sociology Preconference in 2018. Free registration to the preconference will be offered to all current CITAMS members. ALL OTHER ATTENDEES MUST PURCHASE REGISTRATION.
