Keynote talk:
Prof. Peter Golding (Northumbria University, UK)
Why a Sociologist should take Communications and Media Seriously
Abstract
In the presentation of this paper, Peter Golding will reflect on why the study of communications and media demands the insights and methods of sociology. He will present reflections on how such key sociological concerns as inequality, identity, power, and change are at the heart of the questions we should be posing in addressing the nature and role of the media as institutions and communications as a social process. The
paper will also address how far changes in the technologies of media and
communications alter, or should alter, our approach to generating research and insight in this field.
