Centre for Communication and Glocal Change

Ørecomm Festival 2012

Ørecomm — Centre for Communication and Glocal Change invites researchers, students and practitioners to its 2nd Festival, 14–17 September 2012. The Festival will start in Roskilde (1 day), move on to Malmö (2 days) and close in Copenhagen (1 day):

Reclaiming the Public Sphere:
Communication, Power and Social Change

Social media activism, clicktivism, media revolutions … Since the advent of the Arab Spring began to unfold late 2010, there has been a dramatic rise in attention to the role of information and communication technologies in social change. Now, looking back, a deeper momentum of critical reflection has arisen. This year’s Ørecomm Festival therefore wishes to provide a space for this critical reflection, focusing upon how the notion of public sphere is being reinterpreted in these years, and how new spaces and new agents in the public sphere are influencing the relation between communicative practices, power and social relations amongst all stakeholders.
