Deadline in two days (April 10) — see the call for papers
The pre-conference “Media – History – Social Inequalities” aims to discuss historical and contemporary connections between media and social inequality. The pre-conference will focus on the conditions, causes, and characteristics of the relationship between media and social inequality and its consequences for the present and future. Research interests and analytical perspectives will be collected and explored. The scholarly contextualization of history, media, and inequality offers the opportunity to interweave different approaches and dimensions of analysis to trace time-related mechanisms of differentiation and distinction in the context of modern public formation.
Saturday, 8 July 2023
The pre-conference will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. Afterwards, participants are invited to a small reception.
