Welcome and Opening Plenary
Professor Graham Murdock: Graham is a Professor of Culture and Economy at Loughborough University, UK. His research focuses on issues around change, power, inequality, risk and representation. Specifically, he has focused on organisational changes in the cultural and communication industries; the future of public cultural institutions; the social and cultural impact of new technologies; social and cultural changes in Asian societies; and popular representations and responses to perceived risks and threats. Graham is the author or editor of six books and over fifty articles. http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/socialsciences/staff/academicandresearch/murdock-graham.html 

Communication and Crisis:Economies, Polities, EcologiesFrom the outset, the modern western world system that emerged in the late eighteenth century rested on a series of fundamental tensions that have generated both crises and struggles. These have played themselves out across the last two and a half centuries , but have been sharpened and defined in their present forms by the intersection between the (re)turn towards the market and the digitalisation of  communication systems.We are currently living with a crisis on three fronts- economic, ecological, and political. The global embrace of market driven models of growth rests on levels of consumption and disposability that are propelling climate instability beyond the boundaries of sustainability while generating rapidly widening social inequalities of condition and opportunity. Political systems , confronting these challenges , find themselves attempting and failing to manage tensions between parties and movements. Communication systems are central to the analysis of the present crisis not only because they constitute the major imaginative and discursive spaces in which competing accounts of the past and alternative visions of the present and future struggle for ascendency, but because they provide the core infrastructural supports for organising economic and social relations at every level, from governments and corporations to the intimacies of everyday life.This paper traces the origins of the present crisis and explores the challenges it presents for the analysis of communications 

Dr. Shakuntala Banaji, is a lecturer in the Department of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK. She participated in several large cross-European projects on young people, new technologies, schooling and democratic participation between 2006 and 2014. She is currently UK project director of a multi-country Horizon 2020 project, CATCH-EyoU, on active youth citizenship in Europe (2015-2018), and Principle Investigator for a collaborative project with American University Sharjah on participatory culture, the internet and creative production in the Middle East (2015-2017). Shakuntala is the author of five books, and has published widely on gender and politics in relation to South Asian media, Hindi cinema, audiences, creativity, news reception and online civic participation. http://www.lse.ac.uk/media@lse/WhosWho/AcademicStaff/ShakuntalaBanaji.aspx

Media, communication, and the “touristic gaze”: beyond universalised localism 
Research about migrants, Islam, sexuality, anti-racism or feminism online suggests that the backlash against perceived political correctness has swept across platforms, across media, and gained new technically knowing audiences. While mundane or pleasurable engagement, creativity and social justice activism continues in mediated spaces, racist, sexist and homophobic tendencies outnumber their counterparts. The semiotics of (global south) totalitarianism and of Western orientalist neoliberalism make excellent bedfellows. Lack of fair media regulation and, ironically, mechanical insistence on ‘free speech,’ have allowed far right narratives to establish legitimacy. In some cases, audience empowerment even looks and feels a lot like fascism. Meanwhile everything seems to have been theorised already – usually by the 1970s! In this messy context where old injustices are layered over by new ones, and as different media bleed into each other, where and how should those of us who research in and about media and communications, audiences and politics the global south situate ourselves and our work? Which concepts and theories offer us the greatest leverage and inspiration?

Changing landscape of funding for research in media and communications
Limited Capacity filling up

The roundtable is dedicated to outlining the changes in funding for research in media and communications in recent years. It will report on the preliminary work of a Task Force established by ECREA (European Communication Research and Education Association) to investigate this issue. The work has been provoked by a widespread and increasing concern that research in our field has, in recent years, been pushed by funding priorities towards more  applied, industry-focused research including projects which are conducted in close partnership with media industries,  at the expense of more critical, theoretical or long(er)-term work. The Task Force is also concerned to see whether research in our field is being funded sufficiently in general, and whether there is any shift between funding at national and European levels. The Task Forcebrings together scholars from different European regions and is a first step in producing a systematic mapping of the changing European landscape of funding for research in media and communications conducted by ECREA.  It is hoped that participants at this round table will be able to offer informed comment and suggestions at this mid-stage in the work of the Task Force.

Memory, Commemoration and Communication
Refocusing memory studies: the mnemonic imagination and remembering well.
Memory studies has distinguished itself through its attention to large-scale collective remembering, especially of spectacular events and ruptures. This has included a concern for the ways in which shared pasts are communicated and produced a significant body of studies critiquing the hegemonic purposes to which the past is put, whether in national political discourse or in mass-mediated representation. Some of the most significant historical events of the 20th and 21st centuries have been considered in this way, from the memorialisation of the Cambodian genocide to the mnemonic commodification of terrorist atrocities.  This has had two major consequences: firstly, a largely negative emphasis in memory studies on painful pasts and the failures and flaws of popular remembering; secondly, a diminution of attention to what happens at vernacular (meso) levels and personal and small group (micro) levels of memory work. In our talk we use our concept of the mnemonic imagination to redress this imbalance through a twin focus on vernacular memory and remembering well.

The BBC and Public Service Broadcast
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In this special session five distinguished experts drawn from academia and industry will address the question of whether the BBC is safe in the hands of the present Conservative government. The BBC is currently undergoing the process of Royal Charter renewal with its size, scope and independence very much on the government’s agenda. Professor Patrick Barwise will discuss the economic impacts of the government’s proposals on the industry and on citizens; Dr Jon Hardy will examine the influence of private sector lobbyists on the Charter renewal process; Professor Sylvia Harvey will explore the question of the BBC’s independence; Dr Benedetta Brevini will suggest that the BBC could help to foster an  algorithmic public sphere; and Bill Thompson, Head of Partnership Development at the BBC, will talk about how a networked BBC can become more than a broadcaster.  Each presenter will talk for 10 minutes with 40 minutes allotted for questions, discussion, and debate. The session has been organised by Professor John Downey, Loughborough University, on behalf of the UK’s Media, Communication and Cultural Studies Association (http://www.meccsa.org.uk/).

Lusophone Media and Communications Studies: Imperial Nostalgia or Transcontinental Communicative Space?
Limited Capacity seats available

The panel aims to map and examine media and communication studies in official Portuguese speaking countries worldwide (Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal and S. Tome and Principe, East-Timor). Despite the existence of several vibrant communities of communication scholars, relatively little is known about the communications and media systems and discourses in some of these countries in an academic environment dominated by English. The lack of international (and also intra-regional) recognition of scholars is due to linguistic barriers, inter-continental fragmentation of the geo-cultural Lusophone space and, last but certainly not least, academic scepticism about Lusophony as a post-colonial construct that has not yet been emotionally (at least) decolonized. Authors such as Eduardo Lourenço believe that Lusophony fulfils an imaginary space of imperial nostalgia so ‘we can feel less isolated and more visible in the world, given that the imperial cycle is definitely over’. Other authors such as Moisés Martins take a more pragmatic view and argue that Eduardo Lourenço’s perspective does not tell the full story. Indeed, Lusophony can also be seen as an operational/practical classification, which states a given di/vision of the world. Being an operational classification, it is designed to produce social effects and it does.
In this panel, we fully recognize that Lusophone countries are highly heterogeneous in terms of size, economic development, regional alliances, social practices, and media systems. This extraordinary heterogeneity has had an impact on the constitution of media scientific communities and in the participation in existing academic networks. We contend, however, that it does make sense to talk of a transcontinental Lusophone communicative space and we have put together four papers that substantiate this claim.

Communication Rights
The notion of “communication rights” has been a central theme of media scholarship and public policy activism for the past forty years. But what does it mean in today’s digital age? This is not a simple question, if only because the ‘analog’ age was characterized by communication scarcity, and hence, access to the means of communication, while the digital is characterized, among other things, by media abundance, which poses a whole new set of issues. The panelists in this session will briefly recall the role media scholars have played in framing a global agenda for communication rights, historically, and look at some of the questions that need to be addressed through the particular lenses of gender, the rights of children, and marginalized groups. Through round-table discussion and engagement with the audience, the panel will seek to explore to what extent we can speak of such a thing as universal communication rights, that apply equally to all, and whether it would be relevant to revive the international call for a “right to communicate” that could be enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or a similar global standard.

'The Communication Histories Project'
Limited Capacity seats available

IAMCR and SFSIC have organized a series of events to encourage the building of international bridges between researchers across different communities. The workshops in this series are dedicated to research in the histories of communication studies. We have invited contributions which are concerned with the ways in which contemporary social problems are addressed by our research into communication, information, and media. A call of papers was published during spring 2016 requesting original historical analyses of the concepts, paradigms, methods, institutions, educational programmes, features and figures which have structured communication studies, and which are firmly located in the many contexts which have produced them. The aim is to gather a diversity of perspectives on the history of our field, that together will demonstrate its complexity and interdisciplinarity, as well as historical contestations and counter-narratives.

A first workshop was organized at the SFSIC Congress on June 10, 2016, in Metz, France. Six authors from different countries presented in English or French their papers to discuss this thematic. Six others authors will do the same during this workshop.

Women’s Right to communicate and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Limited Capacity seats available

In 2015, the UN launched the Sustainable Development Goals. These represent a new paradigm on development and the opportunity to build a new narrative where equality as a moral imperative is larger than the sum of its parts (Gurumurthy, 2015). These 17 SDGs will guide global human development policies for the next 15 years.
Human rights are relevant for SDGs; however, the human right to communicate was marginalised from this agenda, both as a foundational right and as a condition for the existence of crucial rights that, together, ensure citizens’ public participation. The focus of this panel specifically addresses the absence of issues related to the gender dimension of the right to communicate from the SDGs, which raises the question of how will patriarchy be dismantled without intervention into the problems inherent in gender inequalities in the area of media and ICTs.
The IAMCR supported the Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMAG) advocacy actions towards influencing the SDGs. In March 2015, we came together at the 59th Commission on the Status of Women to make a strong call to the UN for inclusion of gender equality and media within the SDGs. The SDGs were approved and none of GAMAG’s suggestions were taken on board. The process to define indicators and targets is still open. Currently we are trying to influence the SDGs and GAMAG processes by presenting specific proposals for gathering research which establishes the importance of considering gender equality and media beyond the status of a footnote to the 17 identified SDGs.
The goal of this session is to analyze different dimensions of this process for women to reach equality in all aspects of media and ICTs, and, in particular, due to the centrality of media to globalization processes, to confirm the necessity for inclusion of gender equality in and through the media as key to realizing the SDGs within the next 15 years and more.
