About the conference

The biannual NordMedia conference is arranged by the Nordic media research associations in cooperation with Nordicom and the host university. The conference was first arranged in Oslo in 1973, and has ever since been arranged by the Nordic countries (Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Iceland) in turn.

The NordMedia 2017 conference is hosted by the Faculty of Communication Sciences (COMS) at the University of Tampere.

Conference theme

Mediated Realities - Global Challenges

We are facing several global problems challenging also the Nordic welfare state model during the 21st century: the aftermaths of global financial crisis as well as economic crisis of Europe, the climate change and its consequences on nature, species, agriculture and nutrition, wars and violent conflicts causing human misery and forced mobility and migration of people, growing polarization between rich and poor strata in many countries, confrontation between the ‘Islamic’ and ‘Western’ worlds as well as rising nationalist sentiment in many European countries – just to mention some of the most prominent problems. However, in today’s mediatized societies these challenges are often approached and experienced as mediated realities, in which media and communication technologies, networks and content play remarkably important role.

The NordMedia 2017 conference in Tampere takes a critical approach to the mediated realities of contemporary social and cultural institutions, identities and everyday life, and tries to shed light on the debates over mediation and mediatization in relation to global challenges. The conference focuses on these themes from multiple angles such as journalism, political communication, technology, democracy, gender, cultural studies, arts, philosophy and psychology. The goal is no more, no less, than to try to understand more profoundly the role of the media and communications in contemporary life-worlds, cultures and societies.
