European Sociological Assocation
Research Network 18 - Sociology of Communications and Media Research
Conference "Communication, Crisis, and Critique in Contemporary Capitalism"
University of the Basque Country, Bilbao.
October 18-20, 2011

New deadline for abstract submissions: July 20th, 2012

Keynote Talk: Prof. Peter Golding (Northumbria University, UK) – Why a 
Sociologist should take Communications and Media Seriously

We are living in times of global capitalist crisis that require 
rethinking the ways we organize society, communication, the media, and 
our lives. In the social sciences, there is a renewed interest in 
critical studies, the critique and analysis of class and capitalism, and 
critical political economy. The overall goal of this conference is to 
foster scholarly presentations, networking, and exchange on the question 
of which transitions media and communication and media sociology are 
undergoing in contemporary society. The conference particularly welcomes 
contributions that are inspired by sociological theories, critical 
studies, and various strands and traditions of the critical study of 
media & society.
