MOBILE MEDIA RESEARCH – MOVING FORWARD
Day: Friday, March 12, 2010
Location: The IT University of Copenhagen, auditorium 3
At this seminar, researchers from University of Copenhagen, the IT University of Copenhagen, and the National IT- and Telecommunications Agency present up-to-date research in the area of mobile media in Denmark and in an international perspective.
Mobile media are integrated in our everyday lives at all levels from the individual user to workplaces and social institutions. The functions and meanings of mobile media as such and in combination with other means of communication, information, and entertainment play a central role in processes of cultural and social change and in our access to information in local as well as global contexts. Media and communication research monitors these processes and places them in historical perspective – including the history of yesterday and today – in order to evaluate the development of mobile media and their social consequences.
