International Media Research Symposium: From Traditional to Digital

Digital media contribute significantly in the contemporary skills of creating and transmitting images, sounds and texts. Aware of the field’s effective interaction capabilities, traditional media tools try to become involved in it through hashtags, audience questions and comments, video footage of every day people etc. This symposium aims to create an academic environment that will enable us to deal with media through the axis of traditional and digital, in a multidimensional way.

Data Justice

The collection and processing of massive amounts of data has become an increasingly contentious issue. Our financial transactions, communications, movements, relationships, all now generate data that are used to profile and sort groups and individuals. With the platformisation of digital media alongside governmental and corporate uses of citizen data, developments in AI, the Internet of Things, smart homes and smart cities, the systematic collection and analysis of massive data sets across our social life is being normalised and entrenched – what has been described as the ‘datafication’ of society. This conference will examine the intricate relationship between datafication and social justice by highlighting the politics and impacts of data-driven processes and exploring different responses.
