Latin American Media & Changing Cities: Power, Inequality & Representation Workshop (London, UK)
June 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The purpose of this workshop on urban inequalities and media spaces is to challenge the geographical and media-centric focus currently dominating most urban communication research, whereby the relationship between communication, media and places is mostly approached in terms of representation rather than as experiences that are politically charged.
This panel follows a first academic encounter held in the city of Madrid on 5 of May, 2015, when researchers from Latin America and Europe exchanged ongoing research findings on media and the city. That symposium (Diálogos sobre comunicación y ciudad: recorridos urbanos, migraciones y tercer sector) was the first of a series of dialogues proposed by a network of academics interested in examining and understanding current trends in communication, media and the city. This upcoming June 20th researchers from the Americas and Europe reunite again to advance the discussion on media spaces and urban inequalities in times of crisis.
