International research seminar, October 1-2, 2015.
Venue: University of Copenhagen, Amager Campus, Auditorium 27.0.17.
Mediatization research has now established itself as a prominent theoretical framework and a field of empirical inquiry. The first wave of mediatization studies was concerned with the study of mass media and their influence not least on the political system. The second wave of mediatization research has broadened the scope and considered mass media, interpersonal media, and social network media in relation to a wider set of social and cultural domains like sports, family and conflict. In this international seminar we want to make a status of the field of mediatization research at the same time as we would like to look ahead and discuss possible developments and challenges, both theoretically and empirically.
The agenda of this seminar is divided into three thematic areas within which mediatization research has made recent contributions: Culture, conflict, organization. A fourth theme concerns the status and future of the field of mediatization research. Each of the themes will be addressed by a series of keynote presentations.
