New Media, New Politics (London, 13 Dec, 2007)


Seminar hosted by the Centre for the study of Global Media and Democracy Goldsmiths, University of London Thursday 13 December 2007 Richard Hoggart (Main) Building, Room 137 (ground floor) 430-630 pm There have been many predictions of how new media will transform the nature of politics, making new forms of political engagement and political action possible. Such predictions have accompanied many previous media when introduced, but do the distributive nature of the web and the ‘remediations’ that digital media enable create a genuinely new situation for political practice. This seminar will address this question from a number of perspectives across the world (including Iran, Palestine and India). It will be the first seminar of Goldsmiths’ new Centre for the study of Global Media and Democracy and will be followed by a reception.

Speakers:

Tiziana Terranova, University of Naples Dina Matar, SOAS Sanjay Seth, Department of Politics, Goldsmiths Chair: Nick Couldry, Goldsmiths

ALL WELCOME – FREE EVENT followed by reception
