18 Feb 2016

School of Communication, Media and Theatre at the University of Tampere, Finland organizes one day interdisciplinary workshop on the topic of Media, Event and Social Theory: Transnational Challenges for Analysis. The goal of the workshop is to investigate and examine new theoretical and conceptual frameworks as well as analytical tools to capture the contemporary aspects of eventization of media-saturated social life. The workshop invites scholars from different fields of social and cultural sciences (sociology, philosophy, anthropology, media studies, political science, cultural studies, gender studies, etc.) to discuss the complex interplay between media, event and social theory in the such frameworks as globalization, transnationalism, transculturalism and/or cosmopolitanism, for understanding the current post- national architecture of event-driven, media-saturated sociality.
