Submission: http://esa11thconference.eu/call-for-papers/research-networks/RN18 (click on panel titles for submission...) ESA RN18 focuses in its conference stream on the discussion of how crisis, critique and societal changes shape the study of media, communication & society today. The overall questions we want to address are: Which crises (including the financial and economic crisis of capitalism, global wars and conflicts, ecological crisis, the crisis of democracy, legitimation crisis, etc) are we experiencing today and how do they influence media and communication in contemporary society? What are the major changes of society, the media, and communication that we are experiencing today? What forms of political critique (political movements) and academic critique (critical studies, critical media sociology, critical theory, etc) are emerging today and are needed for interpreting and changing media, communication and society? ESA RN18 is calling for both general submissions on âCommunication, Crisis, Critique and Changeâ that address these questions as wellas more specific submissions that address a number of specific session topics.
