 Hi folks,  For those of you consideringgoing to Montreal this July to attend IAMCR, I am putting out feelers among theOur Media Nuestros Medios group forthe conformation of a possible panel that directly relates to the question ofmedia power. As this is a broad concept, I am thinking to narrow the focus ofthe panel by seeking other presentations that focus on mediated relations betweensocial movements and the state (see my shortened abstract below) if possible - though I am open to other ideas. NickCouldry has agreed to be a respondent  (via Skype) to our papers/presentations (agreat idea that Clemencia Rodriguez put forward).   I am attaching the IAMCR CommunityCommunication Call for Papers.  I realizethis is coming in late, but let me know if anyone out there is interested, orfeel free to forward this to individuals who might be interested.     Here is an abbreviated abstract of my paper.
Extractive politics, mediapower, and new waves of resistance against oil drilling in the EcuadoreanAmazon: The case of Yasunidos This paper discusses a highlymediated conflict between the Ecuadorean government and a newly-emerged social movementcalled Yasunidos. Thedispute is focused on the government’s proposal to drill for oil in the Yasuni, one of the mostbio-diverse regions of the planet, located in the Ecuadorean Amazon. The studyis situated within a context of the government’s expanded “media power”(Couldry 2003), particularly its use of President Correa’s three-hour weeklytelevision program. Despite the government’smulti-million dollar communications campaign designed to convince the public ofthe necessity to drill for oil in the Yasuni,and to discredit, even criminalize, those who oppose its plans, Yasunidos has been able to interrupt suchdiscourses. The mediated battlebetween the Correa government and Yasunidos provides a window onto how media poweris being reconfigured in Ecuador, the strategies that movements use to respondto such power, and what this landscape implies for processes ofdemocratization.     Thanks,Diana

Dear OURMedias!

Just 2 weeks to go until the abstract submission deadline for the  
IAMCR conference this year in Montreal! It would be great to see many

particularly. The ComCom section has always had close relations with  
the OURMedia network and has been OURMedia's link into IAMCR.
